After i eat i get real sleepy and my hands and lips tingle almost like an electric shock feeling. What could this be?

Postmeal tingles: The sleepiness is a natural response to digestion. Your blood flow increases to your belly and decreases to some extent to the rest of your body causing the sleepiness.

If it gets worse please see your doctor. ...Read more
