    It seems like after eating dairy products, ice  cream, yogurt & soft foods it will come out through my nose when I falll asleep in an upright position. I seem to fall asleep within in 2 minutes after eating when it happens & sometimes the  of food coming out through my nose is gushing & seems like quite a bit, & sometimes its just a little, but enough to burn my nose & awaken me.

    This sounds scary. I am concerned that you do not know why you are losing consciousness after eating. The food coming out your nose may even be food not yet fully swallowed. You need to see a doctor about this ASAP before you find yourself in a unsafe situation.
