Lately I have been experiencing random moments where I "pass out". Before losing control and passing out I shake violently. Also sometimes when I pass out, according to my husband, my heart rate slows down and my breathing gets very shallow. We thought that because I have a history of diabetes on both sides of my family and due to the fact that I am hypoglycemic these were just attacks caused by low blood sugar. My husband and I tested the sugar levels in my blood and came to find that the results range between 50-65 (numbers refer to the reading from the One Touch machine I used to test my sugar). We also noticed that if I am engaged in some sort of activity these attacks don't happen. They tend to occur only at night when I am relaxed and about to go to sleep.
