Does anyone else experience anxiety/panic attack like symptoms after eating a meal? I've had GAD for about 6 months now and am on Buspar, and during the morning I'll be doing pretty well, but then after lunch, I'll start feeling some symptoms again, such as dizziness, in a fog, lightheaded and uncomfortable. It's not your typical "food coma" that people talk about when your body is digesting food. Anyone else get this and know what causes it? I would rather just snack for lunch and eat an apple or something rather than to be "off" for the rest of the day.
I get it too I thought it was because I dont really eat all day maybe a small snack. When I eat dinner at night there it is about 10 mins after I eat. Tummy hurts and makes my chest feel all tight which in turn makes it hard to breathe then the panic and well you know the rest. I take Losec for my tummy after many years of NSAID use for TMJD and when I get those attacks I take half an Ativan and it works wonders.

If I can help ANYONE with anything from a papercut to a life threatening illness, I will do my best just to be a friend. " A friend is someone who knows all your faults and loves you anyway".
Thanks for the responses. That may be it. I only eat twice a say, one lunch and one dinner. I'll try snacking throughout the day and hopefully alleviate the shock to the body and subsequent panic. Every little thing I can do to stop these things I will try.
