Red face Face flushing red, esp. after eating - anyone else?

I know that I've read some posts where folks said their heart started pounding after eating. I notice that happens to me sometimes (or palpitations) ... but other times, I see that my face turns bright red.

It just happened again now, after I finished my lunch. So strange!

Have you looked into rosacia? That can cause ones face to turn bright red (especially cheeks, forehead nose and chin areas) after eating. Usually it occurs with eating something acidic (like red gravy or red wines) but other foods can trigger it as well. Its a skin disorder associated with your gastro intestines and response of the facial blood vessels. Just a thought.

You know, I really never thought about rosacia. But - I did happen to eat pasta with red sauce for lunch yesterday, and sure enough I flushed red in those exact areas! Interesting - thanks so much. I'll have to ask a dermatologist about that.

Re: Face flushing red, esp. after eating - anyone else?

When my free thyroid hormone levels are low, I get the red face/flushing after eating, along with sweating. When I am adequately medicated this does not happen.

It tends to happen to me during/after a complete meal -- doesn't seem to happen with just a little snack.

I do not have rosacea.

Best wishes.
