At first, I thought this is near syncope, but recently I had a severe occurrence which my instinct told me to take my blood
sugar, so I do and it was 39. I was on
the verge of collapse and quickly drank a 12 oz soda and some orange juice. My sugar then shot up to 145 and although shakey I felt a lot better. 30 more minutes rolled around, I ate rice and chicken, and in the middle of my meal I began feeling lightheaded again...sugar had dropped back to 52, so I drank another soda.
