Ok here's the report
- no heart problems
- blood glucose normal, not sure of insulin levels though
- no asthma (lungs sounds are good , no wheezing but it feels like asthma)
- No hypoglacemia , i checked fasting BG during episodes and during fasting
- Went to a neurologist, he says I'm neurologically fine

I think it's kind of insulin resistance.. do lung muscles have a problem due to IR?

"no wheezing but it feels like asthma"
Make an appointment with a Pulmonologist/Pulmonary Specialist.

Insulin resistance can be tested for. IR can be found in people who are obese, pregnant, under stress, severe infection, or under steroids.

I have the same problem and I don’t know what it is.  I also am on a drug called Ocrevus, which is pretty powerful like chemo, and many other drugs to manage my MS, so I wasn’t too worried about this minor problem that only happens when I’m hungry.  But glad to see someone else experiences the same thing that I do and I’m not crazy!!
