Every time I eat I become so shaky and weak that the feeling is that I could start fitting (I'm sure I wouldn't, but that's how I feel). I just feel so extremely strange. I had a vegetable pastry thing and baked beans for lunch, and I've been like this for hours. It's making me not want to eat as anything triggers it. It is really a very horrible feeling.
I have been on 150mg of Pregabalin for nerve pain and 60mg of Ranitidine since December 2011.
For anyone that finds this in their searches, it turns out that I actually have Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). Autonomic testing showed a drop in blood pressure after eating which cause these symptoms!
