    Well type one diabetes can cause pain however this is usually with those who have dealt with the disease for a prolonged amount of time. This is because small blood vessels are damaged leading to inadequate circulation which can cause pain. The mood swings are due to blood glucose levels (amount of sugar in the blood) being to high or to low. This can lead to behavior which mimics drunkenness. i.e.) disorientated, confused,slow,angry,ect. However these symptoms are not normal for those who properly manage their diabetes. If this is occurring with someone you know it would be wise to see a doctor or go to the hospital.
