Just lately i've been having issues after eating. Generally my heart rate accelerates, I feel light headed and it feels harder to breathe. I have to usually get up and walk around as everything feels 'too close'. Anyway, the thing is walking around makes it easier to deal with, but what seems to always calm it down is a V8.
I can feel horrible, shakey, short of breath, nervous, but a V8 seems to calm all of that down. At first I was thinking it was an anxiety condition, but its almost always related to having just eaten, or not having eaten for a while.
Lately i've been pretty fatigued most of the time and the mornings are rougher with each passing day of the work week. This has cut into my energy and ambition quite a bit. I spend more time worried about 'keeping things going' till I can get home and sit the rest of the evening in relative comfort.
Could it be blood sugar? Stomach acid issues? I want to see a doctor about this but I am not sure where they should look, and general examinations in the past have never revealed anything they felt was important enough to talk about.
For about a year I drank regularly, but soon stopped when these issues started showing up. I went out drinking with friends a few weeks ago, had beer, and a few hours later I had an attack as described above, but this was before I started keeping V8 around. I dont smoke and I have been on a low fat/carb diet which was pretty strict due to the lack of daily activity.
I suspect this may be a stomach issue since iirc tomate juice neutralizes acids to a degree?
