lost comsciosness

From: bab100


I have had several episodes of fainting after eating. Thought it was shellfish allergy but las episode involves no seafood. Went to E.R. with low bp (80/35). Was given several liters of saline IV. They think maybe vaso vegal. My doctor thinks not enough protein in my diet. Ususally have a banana and a yogurt during the day and really only eat dinner as main meal. Also some alcohol prior to these episodes but have had alcohol numerous times without incident. Any thoughts?
