This can be several things, all of which need to be evaluated in person. There are multiple symptoms to address here based on several possible body systems. I suggest seeing a internal medicine doctor in person. I wonder if you have gastric dumping syndrome.

It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. If you are overweight, losing weight would be imperative. It would be prudent to see a doctor, preferably a GI doctor. Wish you good health!
