Gastroenterologist: You may be experiencing a type of dumping syndrome where rapid emptying of stomach contents into the intestinal tract occurs with rapid transit down the intestines. This causes an adrenaline type reaction with insulin release. Certain foods are culprits. Often cramps, sweats and loose bowel movements also follow. I recommend consulting a gastroenterologist for evaluation and dietary advice.
