    When is the last time you had a physical? Any new medications? We ain't getting any younger. Could be anything, could be nothing serious. Try wearing compression stockings and an abdominal binder. See you doc. Sorry, it's the only stuff I can think of to suggest.

      I've found that drinking 16 oz of clear juice (not tea or coffee) during or right after eating prevents my BP from dropping as much, at least not to the point where I feel faint and have to elevate my feet above my chest. Discovering this has taken 70% of the dread out of eating.

        Eating is a trigger for panic attacks for me (usually my BP is low). I've no idea why but changes happen to me after eating that mimic increased anxiety responses - heart racing, palpitations, pressure in the chest, etc. I hate it, but it's nothing a little Xanax doesn't help cope with.
