Getting sick after meals..

This has been going on for a very long time. I will eat and then just minutes after finishing begin to feel like I have the worst case of the stomach flu. I run to the bathroom to throw up, the room will start spinning, and occasionally I will get chills. 
I seen a doctor and he tested me for hypoglycemia and checked my thyroid.  He said that there was nothing of concern, but I had a very tiny cyst that he was not too worried about. He said he wanted to see me about it in 6 months, and told me to eat snacks rather than large meals.
That actually has been working quite well. I have been eating cheese and crackers, soups, cereal, granola, smoothies. Well it's been getting old, so for the past few days, I have been eating regular meals. These were dinner meals.. Day 1: Sphagetti and corn with a slice of toast. Afterwards  I felt like my inards were being ripped apart inside..
Day 2: Salsbury steak with green beans.  I felt so nauseous and dizzy that I passed out and didn't even remember the next day what happened! I woke up sitting up in my chair.
Day 3: I had baked chicken and had to have my Grandma watch the baby, while I slept the nausea, chills, and dizziness it off. 

What the heck? Am I going to have to eat like an anorexic person forever? I am at a healthy weight...I have lost 25 lbs since all of this. I am at around 110 lbs.

Ask to be refer to a GI dr. My dad had that problem because of the meds he was on.

Get your gall bladder checked out.  I had that problem in 2009 and had a HIDA (sp) scan and my gallbladder was function at 8%.  They remove it 30% functioning.

This.
I had gall bladder attacks and it was my first thought.


Quoting AnnieGoolaheey:

I agree with te gallbladder. Check for acid reflux too. I have it and often feel yucky after eating.

I also have this problem. Eat smaller portions of those meals, think toddler servings.
