I begin shaking after a meal, my friend said I should test my blood sugar, used his a test meter and it read 70, should I be concerned?

Over the past few years I've suffered from high blood pressure. I was visiting a friend that has Diabetes. We went out for breakfast and I had a waffle, banana and coffee. two hours later I begin shaking, sweating and became agitated. My friend said I should test my blood sugar. He used his a test meter and it read 70, I tested again in the morning before eating, it was 92. Also, the following symptoms: Night sweating, shaking between meals, crankiness, weakness, constant pain in feet, anxiety, irritability, confusion, nervousness, tingling, pounding/racing heart, fuzzy head, mood swings, fatigue, melancholy, muscle twigging and spasms. Should I be concerned?

Thanks ameagle, I don't have a doctor. No insurance right now, but I do plan to see a doctor when I can afford it. I eat plenty, a fairly healthy diet, but sometimes I overeat because I'm always hungry. I'm overweight, so I'm very concerned and I try to workout when I can.

I ate a candy bar, retested after 10 minutes and it went up to 107. My concern is why is it dropping so low.
