Oh iced coffee, why you make me feel this way?

I drink iced coffee from Starbucks once or twice a week. My standard order is a grande with two Splendas and 2% milk. I've noticed that by the time I get to the end of my drink I have that shaky and empty feeling that usually means my blood sugar is low. I don't notice any particular sugar/caffeine high while I'm drinking it. I usually sip on it while I'm working at the computer, so it takes about 45 minutes to finish the drink. What could be causing the sugar-crash feeling? Is it all in my head?

I'm not diabetic, have no known health issues, and haven't noticed this reaction from coffee or sodas in other cases. I drink a diet soda or two most days, so my body is no stranger to caffeine.
