Does this sound like low blood sugar

I have never had problems in the past but about two weeks ago around 8:30 in the morning I started to feel very strange, kind of out of it, my face felt odd like the muscle below the skin was numb, I just felt cloudy and as if I could pass out. That morning I had no breakfast and way to much coffee. Twice after that I had similar spells just not as bad. I have started eating a better breakfast, a cup of milk in the morning and limited myself to 1 cup of coffee. Still today around 10:45 (ate breakfast at 7:00) I started to get the strange feeling in my face, and the nervous out of it feeling. I ate lunch but it is now 2:45 and I am just now starting to feel better but I am still left with the strange feeling in my face. This is pretty much how it has been the last couple weeks. It just comes and goes but does seem to be related to eating.

The only way to know for sure is to get a meter and test yourself when this happens. I know that if I have a bout of low bs, I can feel bad for the rest of the day, but the facial thing I've never heard of.

Re: Does this sound like low blood sugar

Some people do experience numbness of their face when their blood sugar is low, but it could be due to the caffeine too. As mentioned before, the only way to know is to check your BG.
