I;ve been really good with my insulin for a few months now. Thusly, I have put on almost 20 pounds. Anyway I have been awakened for the past 3 nights with below or right at 80 blood sugar. Per guidelines this is within normal range but I am shaking, sweating and right now my hearing and sight is off (like I'm on drugs LOL). I tried telling hubs but he doesn't want to wake up.I know I'll try to get my diabetic educator tomorrow but no tellingwhen he can get back to me. I'm kinda scared and I feel alone and agian with the loopy feeling. What to do...what to do...

OP--Take a look at the following link.
It sounds as if you may be experiencing a panic attack or have an anxiety disorder, which CAN mimic low-blood sugar symptoms. Since you attribute these symptoms with diabetes, it can be soemthing that is easily overlooked, adn confusing when you cannot stop the symptoms. Since your blood sugar is within range, and you're still shaky and dizzy, and this has happened in the past, I would bet that you have another medical condition that needs to be addressed.
Contact your doctor or diabetes educator and explain how you're feeling, and ask if it could be some sort of anxiety disorder you're experiencing.
