In brief: Postprandial synd
Do you eat a lot of carbs for your lunch? You may have postprandial syndrome, which may or may not be associated with reactive hypoglycemia, due to increased sympathetic nervous system activity after ingestion of high carbohydrate meals triggering excessive Insulin release.
Increased sympathetic activity is the underlying cause of weakness and shakiness. You should see a doctor for evaluation.
