When I went to dinner today I was 75 and I had a glucose tab before I got my meal. I ate and afterwords went to the store and I pretty much felt like going into a seizure or knocking cans over. I kept actin funny and walking wierd. My mom let me drive and when I got to my house and tested I was 134... but I still felt low and my stomach was hurting. Right now I'm getting really hot and sweaty and my arm muscles hurt real bad. I guess they are tired or something.

Do yourself a favor and get into the habit of testing your BG's before your start the car, I have learned to trust my feelings (of lowness and/or normalcy) only so far, that is why I carry my meter everywhere I go, to insure that I'm not feeling one way and reading another. As you know we can easily go from feeling fine to becoming a space cadet in just a few moments.
