So I've been having issues with eating something, it doesn't matter what the meal is... and about 5 minutes later, the room is spinning and I can feel the floor coming up to meet me. I've passed out once and typically the dizziness leads to nausea which in turn leads to about 10 minutes of vomiting/retching. After being told it's definitely NOT caused by gestational diabetes (I was insulin dependent GD with DD#1 7 years ago) the doctor says that he believes it to be Vagal, or related to the Vagus Nerve/Vagal Stimulation. Naturally, I go home and I try to look and see what I can find on this with relation to pregnancy, and really not finding much information that is helpful for what I can do to combat this dizziness. My husband is overseas right now, and so I am driving DD#1 back and forth for school and what-not... so this concerns me, as I've nearly passed out once while driving. It ALWAYS occurs after I eat, and I DO suffer from a finicky GI, but it also occurs at other moments as well. So I am unsure how, if at all, I can prevent this. So my questions are:
Is anyone else suffering/ or have you suffered from this?
Are there ways to prevent this?
Is there a site or link you can share with more information about this?
Do you have any input or know what I can do to combat this?
Thanks in advance to anyone and everyone!
