Customer Question

I am a 62 female in good condition but I run a business and have stress. Recently, I have noticed when I take my first bite of food I get a lightheaded feeling! I continue to eat and try to ignore it and it resolves. I wear reading glasses and I see floaters but have for a long time. I also, consider the amalgam fillings...maybe I have a cracked one and Mercury is leaching and this happens when I take a bite! Had bloodwork done today have not seen results. Recently , started taking Tumeric ....I am usually sitting or driving when this happens!

I am glad to post answers.

I do not , in fact, do phone calls.

This symptom is not usual at all.

It could be a very unusual form of vasovagal response. The first bite of food might trigger this.

In some people, it happens from urination, as another example.

I do not think it has a thing to do with mercury fillings.

any symp***** *****ke this is a prompt for a full exam by your doctor however.

It could even be a very usual form of angina, so a heart work up is indicated, based on exam and

EKG findings.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
