Dizziness after eating
I ate too much on Friday, after a large tea I ate the remainder of a chinese curry at supper time. I had very bad nightmares that night and woke up at 3am feeling slightly dizzy. The next day I felt unwell especially after eating my first meal of the day in the afternoon to the point when I thought I was going to pass out. Since then I have been feeling dizzy after eating anything at all. I’ve been checking my BP an it is 128/82. Can you
After a meal the blood is diverted to the stomach to help with digestion. That is the reason we feel yawn and feel sleepy after meal. The brain is not getting enough blood supply and so decreased oxygen leading to sleepiness. So, if you take a shower soon after a meal further blood pooling will occur to the skin and the blood supply to the brain is further decreased. So, avoid a shower, strenuous exercise and swimming after a meal and take frequent small meals. But persistent dizziness could be due to other causes like cardiac or lung disorders. You will need to consult your primary care physician for a proper evaluation. Regards.
