feeling strange after eating

    
Asked by srsmith (Male; 41 ) on Sun 10, Oct 2010 09:20am

Sometimes after eating I feel strange. I feel light-headed, often with a slight headache. My stomach feels like its churning. Also, my heart beats harder. It doesn't particularly beat any faster or slower than normal, but it's like I can feel my pulse in my stomach. This usually happens within half-an-hour of eating. Sometimes it lasts a few minutes, other times up to an hour. The symptoms come on quickly and disappear very quickly too. My stomach also feels solid and bloated, and the symptoms are worse if I have a drink during a meal, even if it's just a glass of water. The solid feeling in my stomach is in the area just below my diaphragm and makes me feel like I can't take a deep breath. It has been suggested that I might be suffering from 'reactive hypoglycemia' but my blood glucose levels are normal during an attack of those symptoms. I would be grateful for any suggestions

Welcome to the forum.There are possibilities that you could be suffering from gastric ulcer,oesophagitis,haital hernia or postpandial dysmetabolism,heart problems,arrythmias,postprandial hypotension etc.In post prandial dysmetabolism ,after eating sugary and fatty foods lot of damging free radicals are released in the blood stream which cause damage to the body causing symptoms of fainting,dizzness,plapitations etc.Postprandial hypotenion occurs due to diversion of blood flow to digestive tract causing hypotenion.For correct diagnosis you need a complete workup of blood tests,USG of abdomen,electrocardiogram,endoscopy,Holter montoring of the heart.Please consult a physician ASAP.best luck!
