Dizziness & feeling of fainting after eating
Hello. I have searched everywhere and cannot find an answer. I am hoping that someone here can help me. After eating a meal I get dizzy and feel like fainting. I suffer from vertigo and dizziness but it gets much worse within a half hour after eating. I have never fainted but it feels like I am about to. Lying down or sitting does not relieve the symptoms. I have been diagnosed with gastritis and an irritated esophagus. I am on Omeprazole 40mg (2 months) and changing the time of when I take it does not help. I have taken my blood pressure when I feel dizzy and it is normal. My pulse and body temperature are also normal. My blood test came back normal for cholesterol, diabetes, minerals, and vitamins. Because of my gastritis, I don’t consume citrics, tomato based anything, fats, tea, coffee, soft drinks, don’t smoke, don’t do drugs. I do take Gaviscon at night before bed to control the acid reflux at night. I was recently treated for Halicobacter Pylori by taking antibiotics. The antibiotics did not help or worsen the symptoms. I have lost 20 pounds in the last four months due to the stomach problems. I have tried eating smaller meals, chewing my meals well, and I drink about two liters of water (64oz) daily without relief. My bowel movements are normal. Consuming liquids alone do not give me this symptom. Thank you for any help that you can provide.
