From San Rafael, California, USA:

Is a hypoglycemic seizure just like an epileptic seizure? That is: Does the person yell and feel like they are swallowing their tongue? Do eyes roll back? Do they shake? Etc.?


There are many types of seizures, and it is not possible to diagnose hypoglycemia on the basis of any special characteristic of an episode.
