Cold Sweat After Eating
Instantly after eating I break out into a cold sweat around my hairline, and my upper body (neck, chest). It doesn't matter what I eat?
Frey syndrome: Various causes, including diabetes and damaged parotid gland. Frequently no cause can be identified. Can try application of antiperspirant to scalp and forehead before important social eating. BOTOX injections work. Best strategy will go to a multispecialty clinic or medical school clinic where you can be seen by dermatology, ENT, neurology, endocrinology.
Sudden onset of cold sweat, weak, hot, shaking hands, fast breath, intense craving for sugar candy or orange juice. Stop after eating candy.....?
Blood sugar?: Sounds like one of a few things - anxiety or dehydration (which were cured by time) or hypoglycemia (which was cured by the sugar). There are a few other less likely things down the list. You should eat, sleep and exercise regularly. If this is recurrent or you actually lose consciousness as a result of one of these episodes you might want to see someone.
Sweating: Digestion does change the nervous system response, so some foods, fatty or spicy may cause change in perspiration.
Once in a while I sweat a lot. I have diabetes. After eating heavily it get back to normal. My bp recently was 160/ 70. What is wrong? Thanks!
Probable Low BS: This is prob a low blood sugar reaction or what is called psuedohypoglycemia, if your diabetes is not very well controlled and your blood sugar starts to normalize you may feel like you are having a low blood sugar. Also a rapid drop in sugar from certain meds can do this. Less likely heart disease is a concern if the DM is uncontrolled. The key to stabilize sugar (not too low)& slowly get to nl.
It could be a: Sympathetic nervous response of your body to eating. (personally when I eat and I luv the food (especially see food - I eat whatever I see!) chunks of sweat literally pour down the side of my temples). Get checked for thyroid and sugar problems too. Hyperfunctioning of the thyroid gland may make u skinny despite good appetite. Give us some feedback!

Blackout: Loss of consciousness is of great concern. Call your doctor to report this and get checked up to determine cause and if you need treatment.

Endocrine dysfunctio: You need to see a doctor as soon as possible, there are several endocrine issues that could be causing this. Gi problems also need to be investigated.
Why do I sweat and get nerve pain and really lethargic after eating also my body aches really bad I am miserable after eatin what's going on?
2 months old is very fussy after eating. He passes tons of very smelly gas and sweats a lot while crying/gassy, throws up 1-2/ day. Mylicon doesn't work?
Doctor's exam needed: A 2 month old baby normally does not have bad-smelling poop nor smelly gas. If that is happening, the doctor can examine the baby and look for infectious causes such as viral or bacteria causes. Also, a few babies have trouble digesting what they eat, thus leading to bad-smelling poop and gas. Two months is still very young, so a parent should not wait.
Tingly face, legs and arms. Frequent thirst and urination. Hot sweats after eating. Feeling faint etc if I don't eat?
See the doctor.: She may be having the start of an illness that needs further evaluation by a medical provider. A cold sweat may be a sign of a fever so please check her temperature and you can give Tylenol (acetaminophen) and apply a cold compress on the forehead and neck.See 2 more doctor answers
Spasm of vocal cords: Most likely it is simply spasms of the muscles that make up part of your vocal cords.
I'm haveing cold pain in the middle of my chest that suddenly came on after eating pizza a few hours ago?
Acid reflux?: This could be related to acid reflux especially after eating pizza which has a lot of ingredients that can trigger these symptoms. However, I would need more information to give a definite answer. In any case, a new onset chest pain needs evaluation so my recommendation would be to go to the nearest urgent care center or ED for immediate evaluation if pain is present at this time.
Hi. I am getting a cold sensation (the way one might feel by having wate after eating vicks) after whatever I am eating or drinking, even if a bite.
What may be going: ...on is that a cold sensation from food is traveling from the back of your mouth to your sinuses, causing the blood vessels to dilate and the facial nerve to send pain signals to the brain. Ouch! You can get immediate relief by sipping on some hot tea. If that doesn't work see a doctor, "Brain freeze" can be confused with migraine headaches that may need medical treatment. Namaste.
