    You may have an ulcer. Instead of pain, some people experience hunger or bloating or vague stomach discomfort often several hours after a meal.
    Not sure was the lightheadedness is, but it might be worthwhile checking in with your doctor.

    Sounds like classic hypoglycemia.

    Re: Hunger after eating and lightheaded

    Davitude may be right...but I'd like to add something re: hypoglycemia. Usually with low blood sugar, apart from the hunger, you would most probably also be feeling shaky, nervous (sometimes with tremor), tired, sweaty, cold, confused, irritable or impatient. Do you have any of these symptoms?

    The appetite and dizziness came first for me. As far as the others,
    I used to get those a lot, too (every freaking one)! Those came later and were from crashes after eating something sweet/starchy, rather than not eating...I actually felt better if I didn't eat, being dizzy is a lot easier to deal with!

    I think it may be early for the crashes since she only gets lightheaded sometimes...Kokabeel, any of this stuff sound familiar?

    yep, hypoglycemia with perhaps low blood pressure thrown in. Start eating better (fresh whole veggies/fruits, lean protein, lots of water. STOP eating white flour, white sugar, pop, alcohol, white pasta, white rice). Eat something every 2-3 hours. Make sure you get a pinch of sea salt in some'res.

    best wishes,

    Gee, I'm 50, and in the "good old days" feeling light-headed meant your brain was trying to tell you it needed food. Preferably a (get this) "Balanced Diet"!!!
    I know, it sounds so silly...

    Re: Hunger after eating and lightheaded

    Have you gone through a period when you were starving yourself? I am not sure if I understood everything correctly, but it sounds like in the past you have eaten very little?
    The reason why I am asking is this: I had anorexia in the past, and after I started eating more again I would often feel hungry even after a meal... like my body wasn't used to it anymore, or was still undernourished just generally.

    Have you been checked by a doctor?

    Sometimes feeling overly hungry can also be from a disease, like diabetes (you say you don't have that) or hyperthyroidism.

    What do you normally eat? Just poor eating habits can contribute to the lightheadedness. I get that way and I am not deficient of any vitamins or minerals, I just dont eat the proper foods. I have also found that my blood sugar doesnt have to be low for me to feel that way. I think it is just your bodies way of saying feed me more and better foods. Dont forget to take vitamins and drink enouigh water every day.
