My symptoms are: After I eat within 15 minutes 1) My heart will race 2) I will urinate really fast like my bladder and kidneys dump 3) My legs cramp from my toes, arch calfs, shins 4) I get very light headed and almost faint, blackouts even lying down 5) I become very lethargic and sleepy with extreme fatigue. 6) I get the shakes really bad MY gastrointerologist found a restriction in my small intestine, it wasn't opening and he said that a Vagal nerve runs in the digestive system and this nerve was creating these symptoms along with elevated liver and pancreas levels. After extensive tests..more and more tests this is what they found. Could you explain more what this is?
