Whenever I start to chew the first one or two bites of food, I experience a sense of dizziness. The room around me doesn't spin, but it kind of feels like I'm spinning inside my head. It goes away after 2-5 seconds, and usually happens only once during the meal, with the first bite or two. I can be eating soft or hard foods, doesn't matter. I can hold my head still or look down at my plate and it doesn't matter. I don't feel it any other time at all, only when I chew something. I don't have any other symptoms. I'm not on any type of medications. I had a stapedectomy 2 years ago to correct hearing in my right ear. I just had a balance testing done because I am planning on having a stapedectomy in my left ear now to correct that hearing, and the balance testing came back perfectly normal. I can't find anything on the web about this, other people that experience it, or what might be causing it. Any suggestions?
Dizzyness while eating could be explained by Roemheld Syndrome.
If it happens along with a number of other symptoms, it could be Lyme Disease. Lyme is known to affect the 10th cranial (Vagus) nerve, which controls the heart, breathing, and digestion.
Lyme is associated with many other conditions because of the extensive damage it can cause in the body. Both gallbladder problems and Hashimoto's have been linked to Lyme Disease. All the symptoms of Fibromyalgia are also on the symptom list of late stage Lyme. Lyme can cause pain in various places, not just the joints and muscles, and can also cause significant anxiety, especially when coinfected with Bartonella, another tick borne disease.
There's more info in this document and more info on ilads.org
Don't believe a doctor who says, "Lyme isn't here." It's in every state in the country! It's more or less common in certain places, but it doesn't mean it's impossible to get.
I cant eat certain foods and when i do my head gets light headed and my eye sight is a major blurr. Its like im drunk i hate it i cant find anything to eat the only thing i feel i can eat is pb&j on gluten free bread. I wish i had answers but dont. Can someone help?
i get this when i eat, especially when i am quite hungry, the reason i go dizzy is because as my taste buds sense that i am getting food the blood is forced in the stomach and gut in order to aid digestion and as a result i go dizzy due to a brief moment of reduced blood flow to my brain.
its normal, anyone who gets this with no other symptoms is experiencing the body's natural reaction to eating when hungry. if you ate regularly you would not experience this dizziness
I am a 24 year old female who has been experiencing dizziness while eating for a while (never thought of it to be a re-occurring thing, so I haven't been keeping track)... but I've been noticing it a lot more and have finally decided to google it. I tend to get dizzy while eating out at a restaurant. I'll be fine in the beginning, but somewhere along the way I get so "dizzy" more so light-headed that I feel as though I have been drinking although throughout that entire meal, I didn't consume any alcohol. I almost want to say that the feeling is sometimes more euphoric than dizzy... either way, its weird and makes me feel a little loopy. I have experienced earaches as a child, I have gotten cavities filled (not sure if they contained any mercury) and I feel like I clench/grind my teeth, but haven't heard about concerns from my dentist in the past. From maybe 6th grade to High School/College, I would almost always chew gum. Nowadays I've broken that habit, but do bite down when nothing is in my mouth. I have also become accustomed to the feeling of light-headedness when standing/getting up too quickly. I have fainted before (hasn't happened during meals, more so in getting out of bed too fast). I have had instances where I don't think I was getting enough air to the point where i was in the shower and due to the steam, it became harder for me to intake air, & thus passing out. I was pregnant once, but had an abortion (please do not judge me, I just want to get everything that might be a similarity to others out). During the time I was pregnant I would become nauseous fairly easily to certain smells, looking at a computer screen for too long, I would become tired faster than normal, I was very emotional, etc etc ... I think I had the usual signs. Anyways, I'm just curious if there was any new information out there? I have yet to inform my doctor about my experiences. I went in for an appointment last week and had my blood pressure/heart rate taken and the nurse said it was normal or fine... and judging by what others are saying on here, doesn't seem like the doctors would know anything unless it was something serious. BTW, I don't exercise often (jogging, running, weightlifting), but I try walk around the neighborhood once in a while and will sometimes jog... my job is physically demanding where I have to be able to lift up to 50 lbs. and be on my feet. Growing up I was active in sports (basketball, track & field, tennis, beginning lessons in figure skating, snowboarded). One of my grandparents died from diabetes, another from Parkinsons (not sure if that ties in any way). Hopefully this feeling doesn't become worse... I've heard of Vertigo and had a professor in college who had it. It doesn't sound fun at all. :[
I would also like to add that I had an absyss (sp) infection a week after my wisdom teeth were extracted. (about 5 years ago?) This caused me not to eat much for almost two weeks, speak (i would communicate w/ a pen and paper b/c it was painful to talk)... it got to the point where I was in pain (head would throb, hurt to swallow). The infection was affecting half of my head and was travelling down my throat - the doctor said if we hadn't come when we did, I could have died from not getting air properly b/c it was affecting my breathing tubes (sorry, not sure what the correct term is). Recently, I was in a car accident where I had a CAT scan & various other tests done. I woke up with a neck brace and was on bed-rest for an entire day. I'm recovering, but I wonder if stress, traumatic experiences, depression, anxiety, etc. has anything to add to it?
I wish I had come across this page sooner. I have been getting dizzy on the first one or two bites of food since about 2008. My primary says she's never heard of such thing. It does not happen all of the time, only when I have not been eating for a while and then begin eating. I was wondering if it was related to blood sugar levels (not diabetic, but do test positive for prediabetes some of the time), but the dizziness begins so quickly after the first bite of food, I have to wonder if the food has had time to even begin digestion yet. In any case, I am releaved to see I am not alone.
I have been struggling with the same problem for years now. When I tell people about they think I'm crazy. I've even mentioned it to my doctor and she told me it was simply vertigo and I would just have to learn to live with it. However it did completely go away while I was pregnant but came back more intense once my pregnancy was over and I stopped breast feeding. I'm now thinking maybe it's a vascular or even a hormonal thing??
Okay, so I am giggling in my head a little. This has been happening to me for 18 years that I can remember, because I remember this scaring the crap out of me sitting in the lunch cafeteria at school. I've been out of school for 18 years now. It just happened again & I just happened to be sitting in front of computer and decided to google it. I have chalked it up all of these years to the fact that it seems like I quit breathing to take a bite, therefore I get dizzy. It seems to only happen when I actually am eating a meal. I eat crackers at times for breakfast and do not get the feeling. Maybe it is something about the anticipation of that first bite! Today I was not overly hungry? Not sure, but it hasn't killed me yet! :)
I found out just today that my dizzy spells (no vertigo) seem to be caused by traces of air freshener in the room. Today, I had a reaction 20 min. after using Febrese. I have had 15 sec. near blackout spells also from baking bread - when I start the yeast or even open the package of yeast, or knead the dough. What food producers don't tell us about are the massive amounts of chemicals they now use to create these foods with long shelf lives, or for that matter, the herbicides and pesticides applied to the plants. For instance, imidicloprid, a powerful pesticide is sprayed on all the U.S. grown corn before planting. Harvard Univ. has conclusive evidence that imidicloprid is causing bee colony collapse disorder, killing off all the bees. That means that all animals we eat that eat corn may be affected as well. Our bodies are all struggling to adapt to these changes, but they are happening too rapidly for our immune systems to accommodate, in my opinion. I had 5 difficult spells today, am age 70 and have had these problems for years. I am the original canary in the mine.
I am a 53 year old woman about 20 pounds overweight and I have noticed this phenomenon for about a year now. It only happens at the beginning of taking the first bite or two of food. A crazy dizziness. I am very busy and sometimes when very hungry will go through a drivethru to grab a quick bite. If I am driving when this occurs (which usually happens when I am really hungry) I am overly cautious. Though I have not passed out from it yet I have felt really close to it at times. It does not do it all the time. I am on no medications what so ever and in good health. I wonder what causes it but I am not extremely worried about it. I had extreme/chronic LOW blood sugar levels in my early to late 20's. My blood sugar levels never went over 70 and usually hovered around the low 60's. I felt brain dead most of the time. Thank goodness that ended in my 30's but my blood sugar seems to be normal now. Around 90 upon waking before eating or drinking anything. I do have unusual thirst at night. I was told that is a sign of diabetes but I don't have diabetes. Does anyone have excessive thirst?
I'm a 39 year old female and I've had this same problem for over 10 years now.
I get VERY dizzy when I eat about 70%+ of the time. It only happens as I put the first bite of food in my mouth. As soon as I start to chew, the dizziness sets in and I feel like I'm the verge of fainting for about 5-7 seconds and then it is gone and does not recur for the duration of THAT meal, but may happen again at the start of the NEXT meal. It does not seem to matter what I am eating, what time of day it is, or how I feel (whether I'm tired, stressed, or not)
It does seem to happen the instant the sensation of taste triggers salivation. (If that makes sense.)
It's a very surreal and weird feeling. I've never heard anyone I've ever known say that it happens to them, so I assumed it was only me until I found this blog. I am amazed at the number of people who experience this strange phenomenon. I was actually sitting here at my computer and it happened as I began to eat, so I decided to google "dizziness when eating first bite of food" and found this site.
I've never mentioned it to a doctor because 1) tests are expensive and I'm sure they would be confused and want to run several of them. And 2) It's really a minor nuisance since it's over so quickly.
Add my name to the ever growing list! Experiencing my second bout of this, last time was about 4 years ago, lasted for about 4 months, then went. Checked out this blog because it came back last week. Damn, thought it was gone for good! Glad I'm not alone cause its a very weird sensation but because it comes and goes so quick you don't worry about it too much!
Me too, its amazing, I have had every test under the sun ran and nada. Tell me I have crystals laying on my lil hairs in my ears and that when I move (I don't have to be moving at all for the dizzy spell to happen) that they are falling between the hairs and making me dizzy. I have the exact same symptoms as everyone else here. It nice to know I'm not crazy and that others have experienced this.
this has been happening to me for almost a year, but not continuously. i haven't seen a doctor, but i think it has to do with my blood sugar spiking once i start eating, especially when i haven't eaten for many hours.
i have had this problem for a couple of years my doctor said its to do with a small bone in your ear and its being set off when you first stretch your jaw / mouth enough to take in food hence why it only happens first mouthful or so. hope this is some help for you guys.
I am a 39 year old female. And I am so glad that I am not alone. My coworkers think im over exaggerating, but it happens about 75% of the time. Always when I start to eat. I did have a problem about 10 months ago with vertigo but now it's just when I eat. I hope to get more answers from you all.
Whew...I guess I can stop Googling aneurysm and stroke symptoms. I too am dealing with dizziness. The intense bouts started about 3 weeks ago although I have dealt with motion sickness throughout my life.
I've been trying some things and here is what I have discovered:
My blood pressure is generally 118-120/80 but its been up lately to 130/80. I believe that it is the stress of my fear that I am having a stroke that has raised this level.
I wanted to drop some weight so I cut my caloric intake drastically. I was drinking a glass of orange juice in the morning followed by a cup of coffee and a yogurt at break and I became so dizzy that I had to sit down. The blackout feeling passed with time but the dizziness, blurry vision, heart pains, anxiety and difficulty in focusing on what others are saying lasted throughout the day. Oh yeah...irritable...very irritable.
I Googled a food list for my blood type which is O negative. People with my blood type already have a high level of acid in their system and my diet was definitely adding to this. I switched up my foods. These days I have a handful of raw walnuts for breakfast and another for break. I also switched to caffeine free tea instead of coffee. For lunch I take organic turkey slices and lay several leaves of raw spinach in them, roll them up and eat. The dizziness is all but gone.
During my afternoon break I was drinking a 12 oz glass of sprite. I cut that out but got one on Friday just to test...one sip and I was hit with a huge wave of dizziness. Also, since I've been living on nuts, turkey and spinach I decided to splurge this morning and make sausage, gravy, biscuit and orange juice, As soon as I had the juice and a couple of bites of food...WHAM!
I have mercury fillings. I had inner ear problems as a child and still have to use alcohol/vinegar drops when I swim to avoid swimmers ear. I am very active going to the gym 3 or 4 times a week. I have had a round of antibiotics in the past 2 months after a minor surgery.
47 year old female
drinks 2 alcoholic beverages in the evenings
My allergies have been worse lately. My ears feel a bit stopped up this morning. I just took and antihistamine so I'll let you know if it make a difference.
This happens to everybody. I believe it happens when you have kept your mouth closed for a long time and suddenly open it to eat the food. There is sudden rush of blood in the mouth mussels which is drawn away from the brain very quickly. The lack of oxygen causes the dizziness.
I too have this happen. It is after the first bite or two and don't last long. It happens with all types of food. It seems harmless to me, and after my research I believe it could be described like what they call a "Chilli High". That is where, the heat of the chilis causes your brain to release endorphins, which are the body's natural opiates. Some people get emotional after eating chilis, some feel dizzy. I get that dizzy head feeling everytime I eat hot peppers or chilli pepper seasoned food but it also happens with other foods. I have not asked my doctor about this theory yet, maybe someone here could chim in on this "endorphin release theory", as to if it is possible or not.
I just googled this because it happens to me, but not as often. Also, it seems to happen mostly with cold crispy salads, and just now I drank some cold water that I had added some mineral drops to and it happened, so now I am wondering if the sensation is caused by cold, water, or some kind of vitamin or mineral...I would like to know!
Hi I know it's a few years later but I have suffered from this for 4 years and just the other morning I woke up deaf. I went to the ENT and they told me I have sudden deafness. It's is not know what causes this but they treat it with steroids and hope u get your hearing back. I am waiting for a MRI to see if I have any kind of tumor or anything. It's very scary. I also have jaw problems so I am not sure if that has anything to do with it. I was never concerned with it till I lost my hearing. So hopefully my hearing will improve and it's not something very serious.
I ran across this post because I finally decided to see if others have been having this issue. I too have been getting dizzy about 75% of the time when I start to eat anything...doesn't matter what it is. This has been going on for me since I was 16 yrs old, and it continues 34 yrs later. I have brought it up to my doctor one time, but she just blew it off and said she's "never heard of anything like that". Sometime's the dizziness is mild, but other times it is strong and lasts for over a minute. I would love to know what causes it, but so far I have been unable to find a reason.
Most of you probably have a vestibular dysfunction that can be worsened by allergies or inflammation. That's what I have and when my sinuses get inflamed, I get dizzy when I chew...especially crunchy things.
I have the same problem, been suffering from one or two times a month for a few seconds during the past five years. When I take my first bite I see the room swimming before it settles and nothing more happens for the rest of the meal. It has over time got more and more frequent plus intense to the point that if I bite into a Sandwich while I drive I take a risk to lose control for a few seconds and with company everybody looks on in concern when I duck my head until I compose myself at the dinner table. I am out of the UK and because I had massive Asthma attack which lead to my hospitilisation I mentioned the issue to the Dr. The Belgian Dr has scanned an echographed around my Liver because of all the products it produces as part of the digestion process (this afternoon I have just had a camera sent down to my gall bladder to check for stones but nothing...) unfortunately other then my bloodwork showing issues they cannot track down the proble,. I am 36 and male they have suggested that working in Customer Service (stress based) will result in my attraction to high sugar contained foods or coca-cola as part of the brains auto-comfort food drive. The issue is probably not related to fat foods just the bodies drive for sugar. To resolve I need to drop 9kg and take up sports that allow me to release stress, such jogging, tennis or squash. My aim is to do this and see if it makes a difference, after reading so many of the responses I cannot help but think that the McDonalds generations of the 80's and 90's now in their 30's and 40's are going to be showing signs of problems which did not occur before. Perhaps the numbers suffering from this are greater then this blog would have us think. If I get a result from all the work my Dr is doing I will post it on here.
My 13 year old son has had the same problem for months now. We just went and had a glucose test done and everything came out good. He is a healthy active young man. We have not changed anything we do or eat and no stress for him. He says it only happens when he starts to eat. His dr put him on a snack at school mid morning and he says he gets dizzy then but not at lunch now. He still gets dizzy at supper but never in the morning at breakfast. He has no other signs and has been checked out by his dr. We dont know what else to try. Any help would be greatly welcomed.
No diagnosis for me yet either, unfortunately. Mine still tends to come and go, although not as often as it used to, and as far as I can figure out, nothing in my lifestyle has changed that would affect it either. Still trying to narrow it down tho....
hi if your son has any silver filings please get them out thy wont tell you it is the problem but i know it is i suffered for years he will get alot of things wrong with him as he gets older PLEASE SAVE HIM FROM THAT IF HE HAS SILVER HILINGS GET THEM OUT NOW
I have similar symptoms, its always the first few bites of a meal and it passes quickly. There's no correlation to the food or anything I can pin down, other than it is always when I start eating, and once it has passed it doesn't recurr within that meal. I hardly ever drink so I don't think it is alcohol related.
I wouldn't describe it as dizziness though. To me it is more like feeling feint. The worst occurrence so far was on Christmas day when I sat down for my Christmas dinner, I felt like I was going to black out and I got a buzzing sound in my ears. It was gone within 5 seconds and I was fine. The next time it happened was the following day when I had a bacon sandwich, but not so severe. Hasn't happened since.
I'm 48 and have been having mild symptoms for perhaps a few months.
I have been having this problem for sometime, I get light headed and dizzy when I start to eat rice or bread products. I don't get it when i eat anything else, it's really strange. It doesn't really happen when i eat pasta, not as bad anyway. But the other day i nearly passed out from eating a slider at a bar. It's this overwhelming feeling of dizzyness and shortness of breath. My vision gets a little blurry and rather dark. It's scares me sometimes. I really wish I knew what the hell was going on. I have since cut all grain and bread products from my diet. I also noticed that when i drink even one beer the next day I wake up with sinus congestion and a head ache. I do have allergies and take a once-a-day every night, but other than that i'm healthy. Any answers please????
I have been tested for diabetes and i've had an EKG. my BP is usually 90/60, HR 60-65. All within normal limits
Yes! Thank you for sharing! I have similar symptoms and was diagnosed with BPPV (Benign positional vertigo) many years ago. I have determined that is I should avoid artificial sweeteners, artificial air fresheners, spicy foods, etc. I also limit alcohol. It was nice to see that I am not alone.
Add me to the list. I just started having this happen about a week ago and was wondering if it was blood pressure related or what. Doesn't happen all the time and lasts a few seconds. Glad to see it's not something unique.
Hi All. Same here as well. I suddenly get dizzy on first bite and it last less than 10 seconds. It's really annoying that I have to freeze myself of chewing and moving to finish the dizziness. No specific food that may have caused. It's already a year now. I'm male, 33, and health is perfect for the last 25 years until today for this sickness. Seems that all who have same symptoms here has no exact answer yet. I'll go to our company doctor for further checking.
By the way, I sometimes noticed that I feel dizzy if I am a bit hungry before my first bite. I believe certain food doesn't matter here since we felt dizzy just right on the chewing part only. I can only sense that at the first chew, we're salivating that causes our senses to rush into our mouth and temporarily affected on this is our brain. Cause of low blood pressure maybe? I am not a doctor but a tech guy. My finding is just my opinion.
41 yr old male. I first experienced dizziness when I was about to eat at a restaurant, when is was 18. It never happened again until recently (last week or so, and not consistently - not every meal). Like the previous posts, it happens just before I am about to eat, while I'm eating, and lasts sometimes up to a few minutes. I do have seasonal allergies, and take Zyrtec or Allegra frequently (those are the only meds I take - however they were not in existence 23 years ago when I was 18, also take Ibuprofen on occasion). I run or exercise three to four times a week. Not a gym rat, but not too overweight. Drink beer a lot..haha, but only good beer. I don't know if any of these connect to whatever it is that's making this condition happen, just wonder if there are any similarities to anyone else.
too feel a bit dizzy or light headed during the start of my meal.
My doctor says it's brought on by the anxiety I am creating in my system regarding the anticipation of food. For me, this makes a ton of sense as I am prone to anxiety in general, explains why it happens at the beginning of the meal and not everytime but more so when I am hungrier and usually in a calm environment.
I don't really experience any other symptoms than this, so for me this makes sense and perhaps could be what some of you are experiencing.
I too just recently experienced this. I ate a huge dollop of wasabi mustard on some sushi and immediately got dizzy when I finished swallowing it. It lasted approximately 15-20 seconds. I was wondering if there was a way to overdose on wasabi, but found nothing but this blog. The dizziness was very similar to vertigo. 44 year old male.
I have exactly the same thing you experience. I don't think it has to do with food. It could merely be the action of chewing. Once when I yawn i too had that sudden dizziness.
I wondered if it had anything to do with me removing my wisdom teeth.. because that was the start of my problems. One of wisdom tooth was close to my nerves and required me to be under GA. The next day, I experienced my first vertigo and a nose bleed. Thereafter I realised i had experienced dizzy spells when i travel and realised I'm more prone to travel sickness which i never had previously. I had my vertigo checked and the ENT specialist noted that my ear probably had particles loose. I learned how to handle my vertigo which will also trigger if i move my head too quickly to the left or leaned back. But it will be ok when I readjust my position. It usually goes away when i pause the chewing and resume later.
I am nailing it down to possibly the loose particles and the nerves reacting to the "balance" when I move. Not sure if the dentist had used so much force during the extraction of 3 teeth when I'm under GA,that caused the loose particles in my ear.Learning to deal and live with it and certainly hate that I can't resolve it.
OMG...so this has been happening to me for quite a while. I remember researching this myself because it has concerned me. I decided to just get back on and "google" dizziness while chewing food/eating because I just got done making a sandwich, took a couple bites...same thing...AGAIN!! I am not sure whether it has anything to do with the jaw or TMJ or blood sugar, etc. but it is most definitely a very weird dizzy sensation. I don't even have to swallow the food. It happens with first few bites and chewing. I just can't believe there are no docs out there that can help diagnose this strange phenomenon that is apparently more common than we all thought!
This has happened to me for a long time. I have no food allergies or issues or... anything. But for 15 years (I'm 31) it has happened to me sooo...
Can I add something in as a simple explanation?
Eating is complex. Yeah, you chew food and swallow and the next day (usually) it goes in the toilet. But there is a whole slew of autonomic physiological stuff that goes on.
Easiest to see is saliva. As that food hits your mouth take a moment and notice, "am I drooling?" Can you feel that saliva build up in your mouth? Saliva is the first part of digestion and I can tell you. When that food gets in nose range and I can smell that food it really builds up! I can swallow all that spit easy. That's normal. The sight, smell, taste, feel, sound of food all trigger that digestive response. And in that response things happen:
Secretion of stomach acids
Tummy Rumbles! =P
Now for your stomach and small intestine to digest correctly it needs blood - a lot of it. This is why you get tired after eating. Blood is still down there and not as much in your head feeding your brain. So what happens if your body just sends a lot of blood to your stomach all at once?
You get DIZZY! Lightheaded, faint, etc. If your arterioles open up all around your digestive system then where does all that blood come from? Remember the circulatory system is essentially a closed loop setup. Your head is easiest due to gravity but the body can shunt blood around by expanding/contracting the arteries/arterioles. I tested this once when I was a medic in Iraq. I was curious so I woke up, ate, drank... went about a normal routine. But I refrained from drinking anything but coffee and tried to keep my physical activity up. So I was really hungry! I took my blood pressure with an autocuff before I ate. I was at a slightly higher BP due to activity and the caffeine. Nothing bad, though. But I tested it again as I was about to eat.
It was twenty points lower systolic and ten lower diastolic. And I was dizzy! All the blood had gone to my stomach.
I tried it again a few days later and just by drinking more water it wasn't a problem. Pressure only dropped 5 points. and I wasn't dizzy. Why? I had more blood circulating in my body so less was shunted from my brain. Simply physiological response really!
I'm guessing this has happened to everyone at some point. People like me maybe more than others. Best practice is to stay hydrated and eat slowly. If I wolf down food I notice it after 2-3 bites! So, I take a bite and drink some water. If slight lightheaded euphoria remains I'll drink 12-20oz of water. This aids in digestion and I feel better.
Another final thing to note. The heavier the food, the worse the response is. IE the dizzier I get. Some nuts and fruit nope. Not really. But a heavy tuna sandwich (I make my tuna so its thick tasty and loaded!) will knock me on my ***. I think my body knows what is coming its way automatically through a lifetime of experience. Example, if you put my in a prime dehydrated and hungry scenario and give me a tuna sammich... I'm done. If you give me something lighter it might be slight to none. If you something bad tasting in front of me I wont even salivate. I consciously/subconsiously know its bad and I wont want it or be hungry. The digestive response stays turned off.
Finally I'd say drinking water and being hydrated before eating helps keep the symptoms from happening. If they already are happening sit down and drink more water. Finally for me if a weird feeling lingers, I will walk and do some pushups. Gets the heart rate up and the blood flowing. It helps me out. YMMV (your mileage may vary).
Just make sure that its this and NOT a serious condition related to diabetes or heart issues or allergies or anything else!
THANKS! This has been happening to me for years. I figured it had to be something like this. It usually happens when I'm about to eat my favorite treats or am out to dinner and I have a high anticipation for a dish. I eat very healthy and just indulged in strawberry rhubarb pie (one of my favorite things) and as the first bite hit my mouth I got really dizzy. What you wrote makes total sense!
Hi you are not alone I have the exact same symptoms for years and on one occasion passed out in a restaurant recently. Lots of tests ruled out anything neurological advice given to me was eat more salt and avoid dehydration but not much help. I had an irion deficiency some years ago and I think it started then but i have a low pulse rate and slightly low blood pressure with exactly your symptoms.am 62. Ian
