Is getting lightheaded after glucose drink normal during the 2 hour glucose tolerance test?

Hi.  I had a 2 hour glucose test today were you fast before the test have your blood drawn and you drink a sugary drink and then have two blood draws afterwards.  Needles do not bother me.
Is it normal for people to get lightheaded in the first hour after injesting SO much sugar?
Just curious, will find out results in a week when all of the others come in.
Thank you;  Amy
