Default Hypoglycemia?

I'm not sure whats going on but I was told what I had been going through a few times per week was Hypoglycemia.

Pretty much it happens in the evening. I was sitting on my bed walking TV and felt fine, but then this weird feeling came out of no where.

My legs felt really odd. Almost like a mild burning tingling ache sensation and I my whole body started to sweat and I had this insane hunger for anything I could get my hands on.

From your experience does this sound like Hypoglycemia/Blood Sugar related?

You'd need to test your blood sugar when you feel this way. Otherwise it's just a guessing game - could be any number of causes.

Can you tell us how you are managing your diabetes and what your BG levels have been lately?

There are a huge range of hypo symptoms, one of which could be what you described. Yes you need to test your blood sugar levels: it could be due to a hyper rather than hypo too! Or maybe something completely not related to diabetes. Better check with your Dr if you're still not sure after checking your blood glucose.
