    A blood sugar crash fucks you up for hours.  You don't recover in 20 minutes.  More like most of the day.

    I passed out 20 years ago from low blood sugar.  I felt like shit for something like 4-6 hours.  And that was the first time.  It has happened a few times since.

    Happens most often when I am eating light, have not eaten yet, and encounter high stress.  Flight-or-flight seems to rapidly drop blood sugar levels probably because high blood sugar makes you feel sluggish.  With a diabetic, that can sometimes backfire.
