I get something like this sometimes when I go to the gym and my BG has been a 
bit high (in which case I don't take so much carb first)> The result is that 
my BG falls quite fast, but not to hypo levels. I feel as if I'm low, feel a 
bit sick and shaky, and not able to perform as well as normal. When i check my 
BG afterwards, it's normal.
So that might be one thing to consider....
