It is possible that your diabetes is not well controlled. You should closely monitor your blood glucose level with a home glucometer. When you experience such an episode, it is possible that your blood glucose level has increased or decreased sharply. Therefore, it is imperative to document your glucose levels and to consult your doctor with the relevant information, in order for him/her to advise you on how to manage your diabetes correctly.
