  • I am diabetic and have the same reaction. My dr says that this happens when your blood sugar spikes than drops to low. Thanks for reminding me to take my insulin!!

  • I think it has to do with blood sugar too. It happens to me and I have hypoglycemia.

  • Hard to digest foods make you sluggish...meat, fat, etc. Try juicing carrots and feeling sleepy...go on I dare you!

  • My friend from work said it's called "The Itis" LOL. Well, actually it's kind of offensive but he calls it "Nigga-itis" he said it's common amongst African Americans like himself. I thought it was too funny. I told him I get it too so it's not just a black thing like he thinks lmao.
