for the last year now when i havent eaten for a while i get sweaty, shaky, palpitations and have fainted several times. I find that eating something sugary gets rid of the above symptoms within about 15 minutes.

today at work i experienced the above symptoms and because i was at work in not so familiar surroundings i also has a panic attack. i went to the doctors who just advised that i had been having panic attacks for the last year, but why then does sugar usually cure the problem?

while i may have had a panic attack on that particular occasion because of the hypoglycemia is seems odd to me not to take into account the low blood sugar levels i experience.

could i be hypoglycemic and how on earth do i get my doctor to take my problem seriously when she would rather fob me off?
