I passed out the other day after eating too much. This almost happened two other time s the past two years.I recently had a physical.with blood work. All was good. My blood oxygen was 91-93.
When I passed out the ambulance said the same blood oxygen was low and blood pressure was low.
I wam 57 yrs old. I work out with wieghts daily and ride 5-10 miles on my bike at a fast pace almost daily . Sometimes I ride more than 20 miles. I do get tiered but no ill feelings,no tingling ,no pain ,just worn out. That can be expected.
Why then if I eat too much and have only two drinks I feel faint at times.
How do I improve my blood oxygen level.
I do take multi vitamin and minerals. I do also take zinc,and protien shakes regularly.Once a week a half teaspoon of creatine before a workouy and some branch chain amino acids.Thats all I can think of.
How do I improve oxygen levels.I always worked out hard all my life really .
Passing out after eating is not a common problem and should be taken lightly. It may be due to a variety of factors, related to blood pressure or other system problems. I would suggest speaking to your physician about this again to get a better idea as to the cause and ways to prevent the problem. If this is a blood pressure problem, it can be identified. It is not so easy to conceive of a problem of a low blood oxygen level that occurs with eating. More investigation is needed and your physician is in the best position to do this.
