Fainted after eating and heart raced during and after a ride

Fainted after eating and heart raced during and after a ride.. Before my trip back to the United States from France. I happen to faint an hour or so after I just finish eating. Why is that? During the day, I went to Disneyland and was on the rollercosters as well. Does that have any affect on ths? While I was on the rollercoaster, my heart felt like it was going to jump out of my body. Is that normal or is this a sign that I should not ride those kinds of fast ride again? The ride was called,Space Mountain, it`s speed was 47 mph. When I`m on an elavator, I get the same feeling, but quick and isn`t as bad as if I were to ride something fast.

Hello, welcome to HCM. Your passing out episodes are of big concern and should be investigated thoroughly. It could probably be due to any cardiac problem. Such episodes can also arise due to hypoglycemia or hypotention but doesnt fit in your case. You should visit your doctor for further check up. Wish you good health.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic

Fainting 2 times in a row just after eating could be because of a metabolic disturbance as well. You need to avoid high carbohydrate diet as it can cause a similar picture. Better to get your blood sugar tested. If you were having sweating, trembling and disturbed vision as well. This could also point to a heart rhythm abnormality as well which should not be ignored. Get an ECG to confirm. Consult your Doctor and explain the incident and get examined and required testing.
