could it be?

So i am 22 years old and i have 2  children...I have always had trouble with headaches and feeling weak but it has been getting worse...Here recently i have noticed that if i go a few hours with out eating i get weak,lightheaded, sick to my stomach, and i shake like im going to pass out.I sometimes even have trouble seeing clearly, but as soon as i eat something with sugar in it shortly after i start to feel better...I dont understand what is going on and its caused me to gain some weight.. I have honestly been concerned with being pregnant bc of all of these symptoms..I really dont know alot about diabetes and i do have some family who were borderline diabetics...Do these sound like symptoms of diabetes?

It is always a possibility and can  be determined by a simple test. Ask your doctor. Eating sugar whenever you feel this way is not a great idea, btw. Just eat normal balanced meals on a regular basis until you figure out what is going on.
