The reason your worse after meals is because, when you eat the blood goes to your stomach to try and digest your meal. So the blood that you have going to your brain, which is a smaller amount then normal because you said you are usally dizzy, is even less after you eat because the blood is going to your stomach. I had the same problem and this is how the doctor exaplined it to me. Try and walk around a little after you eat, just around the house or something it helps to keep the blood flowing through your body instead of settling into your stomach.
