Patient : After I had lunch today I felt dizzy so I stayed in bed for an hour hopping this dizzness will dissappear but with no result so I slept for couple of hours but still fell this dizzness but with less rate what could this be please??
Symptoms:  No
Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. What you have described is known as vasovagal syndrome or disorder. This happens when yo u have increased blood supply to the stomach after eating and this reduces the blood supply to the brain. This causes the drowsiness. Eat small quantities of food to avoid this. Hope it helps you. All the best.
