Why do i feel lathargic after eating? I will feel so tired its like i am drugged. Its not like "oh i ate so much i could take a nap now" like my uncle did during holidays. but almost like narcolepsy. i dont eat too fast or too slow, just normal eating, normal food and about 30-45mins afterwards i can barely keep my eyes open if i actually do keep them open. Im not a diabetic, was just tested. i have never been one to fall asleep easy either. this has me rather worried because its going on for so long now and i dont know how to fix it besides not eating, but then of course you have to eat. Open to suggestions thanks. P.S-no chance of pregnancy or tubal....total hysterectomy done years ago.
