Anyone get headaches after going low in blood sugar?

I'm prone to headaches, especially after laying down at night, but I've noticed that I get pretty bad ones after going low in blood sugar. I'm a Type 1 diabetic. Anyone else have this problem and is there a remedy for it?

Hello and welcome to the forum. Thanks for your question.  Hypoglycemia or low blood sugar can indeed result in a headache and sometimes severe.  https://www.migrainetrust.org/about-migraine/trigger-factors/hypoglycaemia/  You may find this treatment guide helpful as well.  https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hypoglycemia/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20373689.  Are you having trouble managing your type 1 diabetes?   I would talk to your doctor about how to keep your range at as consistent of a level as possible.  https://www.diabetesselfmanagement.com/blog/diabetes-headaches-soothing-aching-head/   Talk to your doctor about this.
