Thanks for using Health Care Magic Forum,

You are likely to suffer from hypoglysemic attacks .
Consult an Endocrinologist to look for pancreas sufficiency.
Mild hypoglycemia can make you feel hungry or like you want to vomit. You could also feel jittery or nervous. Your heart may beat fast. You may sweat. Or your skin might turn cold and clammy.
Moderate hypoglycemia often makes people feel short-tempered, nervous, afraid, or confused. Your vision may blur. You could also feel unsteady or have trouble walking.

Hypoglycemia is treated by restoring the blood glucose level to normal by the ingestion or administration of dextrose or carbohydrate foods.

I Hope I Provided Useful Information. Do ask Furthur Questions to help You get well soon.
