    Default Rapid Heartbeat, sweating, lightheaded

    What is causing this after I eat?? Am I eating too fast? I don't like this feeling, I have to sit for about 30 minutes for it to stop. What is causing this??????

    Wow. I don't know. I didn't have that experience. Mine was primarily tummy trouble. See what the group says and if no similar issues, please contact your doctor.

    You need to see your doctor. Are you on medication? It could be a sudden drop in blood pressure, are you diabetic, have you checked your blood sugar?
    Does it happen with all foods, or has it just started? I hope that you get this sorted out very soon. cheers

    I experiences something similar the first time i ate something too rich for my tummy. I broke out in a sweat, and got very light headed and weak. I had just eaten a bite of praline so I knew what it was. If thats not it then make sure you let your dr know.

    Happens to me anytime I eat something with sugar - more than a tiny bit. For the first few months it also happened anytime I ate too much fat, or ate too fast, period. Like the calories/sugar/fat all hit the system at the same time and our bodies overreact and try to use them all at once or store them in an autonomic response from being used to storing fat so easily. It has gotten better, but then I'm also not eating much sugar.
    Wish I could say the same for menopausal hot flashes... which are back after 9 months, darn it!
    Note that my responses here are from the viewpoint of a female 3 yrs out from surgery, with post bariatric hypoglycemia. I am not a medical professional, my thoughts are based only on my experience and research. Lowest wt after surgery, 218 at 9 mo out.

    Check with your PCP if this persists...

    I always thought this was dumping, that's what it felt like to me, as if all the components in the food were flooding my system at the same time... until someone mentioned dumping was gastrointestinal...
    but according to this, it could be dumping after all. I know we don't get dumping like Roux-en-Y or Gastric Bypass folks but it looks like we get a milder version??

    That sounds like what my nutrionist explained would happen when/if I ate too much or ate too fast. Remember the 30/30 rule.....chew each bite 30 times and take 30 minutes to eat. It's only happened to me twice, once I'd eaten one bite (literally) too much salad and the other time I drank too much water at one time.
