        I get Brooks because I pronate. If you have a local running store that will look at your gait and make recommendations, that might be helpful.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢
