Epinephrine is among the major hormones released during hypoglycemia. Epinephrine causes the majority of the early symptoms of hypoglycemia.

Common symptoms of hypoglycemia include the following:

trembling, clammy skin, palpitations (pounding or fast heart beats),anxiety,sweating, unger, andirritability.
When the brain remains deprived of glucose, a later set of symptoms follows: ifficulty in thinking, confusion, eadache,seizures, and coma.
Ultimately, after significant coma or loss of consciousness, death can occur.

I believe you asked about HYPOglycemia: The symptoms are vary varied and might include dizziness, feeling generally out of it, fatigue, irritability, disorientation, tingling. Testing is the key as if your numbers have been high for awhile you will feel low even if you're not. You should treat any lows below 60 (some treat below 70) with a couple glucose tablets. You will learn the correct number for you.
