  • I was extremely tired.
    I was falling asleep in the chair waiting to get blood drawn.

  • I just felt like crap (I guess tiredness was a part of that). Understandable as it is nothing but sugar which tends to make people feel like crap and burned out lol.

  • Yes I was extreamly tired, I felt like I was in a diffrent world and come to find out it was because I have low blood sugar.

  • I also have moments where I pass out. Which doctor doesnt know why. Then other times I feel really dizzy and my hands will get really red and blotchy and like all my veins in my hands,fingers will get swollen looking and stick out really bad..even in my finger tips.
