In my opinion you sound hypoglacemic or you have a little low blood sugar. Please keep in mind though that it is only my opinion. I could never know for sure what the problem is. The only fix if you are a little low would be to eat a snack with at least 15 grams of carbohydrate in it.
In case you don't know what that means a couple of suggestions would be eat 7 or 8 saltine crackers with some cheese or a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter on them
or you could drink 4 oz of juice
or eat a small apple
you could eat a piece of bread or toast with peanut butter on it
you could eat around 1 cup of grapes
Thats all I can think of without going through my fridge or cabinents and getting out my carb counting book.
Anyway, if you are low this should help and if you're not there isn't much harm in a small snack that I know of. Also, if this has been happening to you a lot you should ask a dr asap.
Good luck, let me know
k thax actually right now im feeling that way again except this time i feel really weak, tired, and i have a headach. i ate someting like an hour or two ago and my headach went away and im not as dizzy. i dont know any other advice
