Woman's issue

Question: anyone ever get hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) while on their period? It's the second time it's happened to me in six months, and while I'm not unfamiliar with blood sugar crashes, these were both so extreme they made me very ill. We're talking extreme cramps, nausea, walking up and down the stairs made me have to lie down, shallow breathing, etc.

Now it doesn't greatly concern me because addressing the issue makes it go away after a few hours, and by evening I was fine, if tired, but I don't get blood sugar drops that strongly at any other time, and both times it was on the first day of my period, I had been eating sufficiently (yesterday it happened an hour after lunch, ffs), and I had no particular other issues.

I don't get it every period and if it becomes more frequent I'll have it looked at, obviously, but I'm just wondering if it's a coincidence or if people know this as a side effect of having your period?

  • My absence is explained!

    I was absent for a while becuase eumelia came to stay with me! We had an awesome time and crammed the days full of art and train journeys…

  • Still alive!

    Well, still coughing my lungs out but the misery is much less. If it goes on for much longer, I'll consult my GP, but I'm not suffering, so it's all…

  • Freight Shift!

    a.k.a. one of those days I attempt to persuade my body it's really normal to get up at six am for no good reason other than that I must earn a living…
