First off do you have diabetes, I do and a lot of the symptoms are the same but not all and I'm sure that your pdoc may have tested you for it in your blood work but right now I don't know as you have not said if you are diabetic and if not I would eat something just to bring it up and talk to your doctor about it just wish I could help you more but not really knowing other then some ppl are anemic (sp) to low blood suger, but trying to calm yourself will help you in the long run for now and I'm sure there will be other on that can help you more.
Symptoms of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) range from simple faintness, to those that mimic an anxiety attack. Hypoglycemia is more than just hunger pains; it is a complicated and somewhat annoying condition that can seriously hinder even everyday functionality. Hypoglycemia is a low level of sugar or glucose in a person’s bloodstream. To the best of my knowledge it is a physical reaction that may cause anxiety.
Can anxiety cause low blood sugar, I do not believe so as your endocrine system controls your blood sugar. Please remember I am not a professional.
Well your on Predinisone..................could that be the reason your blood sugars are fluctuating, question for your endo?
I did not mean to be so generic in my answer as I dump my blood sugar when I exercise, and I am not diabletic but I have checked it many times to find it in the 74 range and I am cool, clammy and a bit dizzy. although I am ditzy on a good day. :) Are you documenting your BS with a glucometer?
I would always rather see some one running a little high on their BS than low. I usually just grab a piece or 2 of hard candy, or a fruit.
I am not familiar with your diet but I am sure your physician is.
My Dr. was not concerned re my issue.
Hugs to you.
The first thing I use to do when my anxiety was running high or so I thought was to check my blood sugar level just to make sure it was my anxiety kicking in or my blood sugar was too high or low, but I will say that the symptoms do seem the same at time but just taking the glucometer reading lets me know for sure.
