Sensation of fainting and breaking out in a cold sweat after having food. Advise?

Sometimes after I eat and just at other times too I will suddenly feel like I am going to pass out and break out in a cold sweat. The feeling goes away within minutes but sometimes lasts for an hour or so. The room spins and I feel very very ill. I sometimes think this is related to a bowel movement, but I'm not sure since I don't always go to the bathroom or think I have to when this occurs.....what could this possibly be?

Your symptoms can occur in normal individuals due to shunting of blood to stomach after intake of food for digestion and decrease in blood supply to brain. If you are not able to compatible with it go in for hormonal study and consult a GI physician or endocrinologist. If you are able to cope up then no need to worry about it.
