ive never experienced something like this before, but it could be as simple as the time of day your eating it as well as previous activities. Try eating chocolate from a different company, then we can come up with a plan...
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
What you suffer from is probably narcolepsy, which is a neurological disorder. This is thought to be caused by low protein called hypocretin, which is made in the brain. The symptoms are an urge to sleep especially after meals. Sleep studies and EEG are done to rule out other causes of poor sleep and insomnia. Eating light and frequent meals during the day helps. Also assigning a nap time during the day often helps. You can take a light meal before this. At times some ante depressants are prescribed to control the symptoms. Do consult your doctor and get a referral for a sleep specialist and a neurologist. Other possibilities are pancreatic insulinomas causing a surge of insulin production after meals, hypoglycemia and an urge to sleep. In women it can also be due to PCOD.
Hope this helps. Take care!
