Brief Answer:
hypoglycemia or stroke

Detailed Answer:
Hi, considering your age and history of diabetes, you appear to be having hypoglycemia. The other possibility could be ischemia ( stroke) which needs immediate treatment. I suggest you eat some sugar and rush to emergency department to get your blood pressure checked and evaluated for stroke as well as blood sugar levels. Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol
