Yeah, I do. Not official hypoglycemia, but low blood sugar. I was having headaches and dizzy spells for a long time, so I finally went to the doctor to get my blood tested. Hypoglycemia is considered around 60 mg (I believe those are the units) in your blood, too much blood sugar is over 135 mg, and I only had 70 mg. So not drastic enough to be diagnosed as hypoglycemic, atleast not by my dr.'s standards, but we definitely know low blood sugar was causing the problem. What helps me is having a protein bar with me so I can take bites of it in between classes. Don't eat extremely sugary foods though, b/c they spike your blood sugar real fast, causing you to crash twice as hard.

Well, it's basically that, having low-blood sugar Do you find that you often go a long time without eating, or skip meals? I have a slight case of low blood sugar, in which if i skip eating for too long, or am active without eating, i get dizzy easily. The thing I found to help best was keeping an apple or something like that, and muching on it. Fruit is a good way to get your blood sugar up again, because it contains natural fruit sugar, and hey, it's also healthy!
