Strange Health Behaviour


Q: Hi there, im a 17 year old male, 6'1, 170 pounds, avearge build. throughout the past week ive been having some health problems. Starts with me getting hot, and clamy, most on my upper body and arms. Sweaty on my back. I get head aches, the occasional aura. When i close my eyes i see a strobe light kind of thing. I get shakey, my legs tend to twitchy, operating a computer mouse gets hard to focus on, and all of a sudden i feel nauseated. Then after cooling down, just as quick as all this happens, i suddley get very cold and start shivering. I tested my Blood Glucose(First Time) at 340 roughly, 10 minutes ago, it was 8.8%. My diet today consisted of a granola bar at 7 am, a 550ml rockstar energy drink at 11am, a couple of hand fulls of Salt and vinegar chips, and roughly 300g of surgary candy, and 300 ml of vitamin water at roughly 1 pm. As well as 1 hour of entense physical activity at 930am and again at 12pm. Any sudgestions as to whats Happening? Ive retested 20 minutes after wating a large orange and it is 12.6 i also checked my weight, originally at 163 to be exact, as of last monday, sorry for confusion, now 155. I wrote this question 2 hours ago elsewhere and was not answered. Since ive tested my blood again and it is regular at 5. But still feeling under the weather.
