[IP] Panic Attacks

I have always likened hypoglycemic episodes to panic attacks.
Physiologically, they are almost exactly the same.  You get an outpouring of
adrenaline and similar hormones in both cases.  This raises your pulse and
causes sweating.  Even when you eat something, those hormones take time to
dissipate.  Hence, over treatment of hypo's.  (I do it all the time.  I just
hate that panicky feeling!)
