    So recently, I have been having spells where I feel exactly as I do in a hypo...to the point even other people are noticing how it changes me. However, when I go to test, my bloods are completely in range.

    I was wondering if anyone else had this or had any suggestions as to why it's happening

    Thanks

    It could be the speed of the drop that tricks you body into thinking it's hypo.
