Brief Answer:
Unlikely to be serious...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

There are certain hormonal as well as vascular changes that occur following a heavy meal. However these changes are transient and doesn't lead to serious concern. Further these changes are common during position changes.

Can you explain how long dizziness last? Is it triggered by changes in position?
What other symptoms are associated?

Brief Answer:
Blood pressure check with other evaluation...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

As I said in my previous reply, it doesn't seem concerning. However as the symptoms are triggered by position changes it will be worthwhile to see a doctor. Blood pressure check along with blood sugar examination plus physical examination will help us rule out problems if any.

Hope it's clear.
