Exclamation Severe dizziness

About 2 weeks ago I had a spell of what I can only describe as the most extreme dizziness one might feel. Not vertigo...really...though things spun a bit. It felt more like I was spinning, and my eyes could not focus and I felt very dull.

It came on suddenly, about 2 hours after eating a meal heavy in carbs with caffiene soda. I was at work and it got so bad I called an ambulance. My sugar in the ambulance was only 74. Not extremely low..but low for me.

Doctor at ER gave me food and within an hour I felt better. Though SOOO tired for the rest of the day.

This episode has occurred about 5 more times since then, USUALLY related to what I eat and happens within an hour or 2 after. Coffee seems to make it worse and last longer.

Whenever I test my sugar during these episodes, its usually low below or near 75-80...but the episodes stop when my sugar gets over 90-100.

The ONLY symptom is the dizziness. No cold skin...nothing else. Though usually my stomach really hurts for an hour or so after. Which is odd.

Could hypoglycemia present in this way? with ONLY the extreme dizziness?

Re: Severe dizziness

I'm pretty dissapointed that NO ONE could take a moment to respond.

I hope you finally received an answer. The same thing happens to me however I get very cold, confused, sometimes short of breath, and very irritable. All of this with a blood sugar in the high 60's low 70's. But, my blood pressure is typically in the 90/50's or 90/60's. This happens when I eat, when I don't eat; regardless of what I eat!
