I just ran across this site and my first reaction after reading about the three patients was hopeful that I may also have a resolution of my symptoms in time...My primary complaint is during and right after eating...I get nauseated and then clammy.I feel my heart race and then I get the "pass-outs".This also happens in the middle of the night while I'm lying in bed sleeping. I will be awoken by the same nausea,sweating and pass out feeling...even though I am lying down! I have found that when I keep my stomach "extremely" light I have less symptoms.When I say light I mean I walk around hungry all day...because if I sit down to even a lowfat meal or anything more than a piece of fruit I get the symptoms.
