    I constantly off and on get really weak shakey feelings and feel like I'll pass out and have passed out a few times in the past and the main thing that helps is food. Mainly sweats. I wonder if it's my sugar too low or what. Waiting on my photo id so I can get a doctor to check me out

    Until you can see a doctor, you can purchase a blood glucose testing kit inexpensively. WalMart sells them as do most chain drug stores. As soon as you start feeling dizzy, you can test.
