Is that my blood sugar dropping quickly ?

It happens after I have eaten too much, or eaten a meal after not eating for a while. Both bad things I know but sometimes it happens. Anyway, I get very very sleepy after eating. Kind of dizzy and go into this weird sleepy /semi conscious state where I feel like I am falling. I feel this wooshing feeling in my head like I am falling. What is going on? I know my sugar isn't too low because it's usually high. This could last an hour and then I slowly come out of it and feel better afterwards. My sugar is usually high after an episode like this (200 or so) I'd check it while it's happening, but I can't. I can't move when this is going on. is that my blood sugar dropping quickly? I am not on insulin - only metformin.

Post prandial (post meals) falling asleep is common to everyone. Try to regulate your intake.

More of proteins and vegetables shall help.

You have symptoms that relate to the high insulin surge after eating a high carbohydrate diet. Avoid taking lot of carbohydrates during the meals, take equal amounts of proteins and vegetables along with carbohydrates. Eat a balanced diet. You might need to check the Glucose Tolerance Test which will show you and the doctor about the insulin secretion pattern in your body.
