Does low blood sugar causes anxiety, anxiousness, trembling of hand and fingers and increased heartbeat for a short duration (for a couple of hours? I mean if a person has not had anything except water for 12 to 15 hours who is also using ashwagandha which is claimed to decrease blood sugar levels. Also what could be the reason of increased heartbeat after meals specially after dinner?

You mean palpitations.(increased heart beat) this is one of the symptom of anemic condition. And yes it can occur in low blood sugar. Ashwagandha alone will not increase the bp.
