If your pork was dry and nasty, I'd say try a different recipe! And quit using stuff after the "toss" date! LOL
The consensus is usually to not eat within several hours of going to bed, too. I also have to have SOMEthing to get my meds down, but what I use is some sort of liquid. An Atkins shake, or a protein powder shake, or something of that nature. I've used a bit of applesauce on occasion. I don't dare eat right before going to bed though. I have terrible nights when I do, too.
I suppose this is a "live and learn" moment, eh? sorry you were suffering. Remember the feeling the next time you're tempted in the wrong direction!

I would suggest that it was not your poor food choice (pork chop) that caused those bizarre symptoms, but you might have had or might have food poisoning. Or someone slipped some drugs into your food?
Skim milk two weeks past the sell-by date? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm....that seems a bit adventurous to me.
I once made some "cake" using 100% expensive coconut flour. I tried to force the cake down, but ended up dumping it. The recipe called for 20% coconut flour, not 100%.
Last night I ate a pork chop for dessert with my evening meds. That's right, 450 calories of fatty, tough pork, in some sort of wine/balsamic vinegar/olive oil glaze, right before bed.
I stayed within my daily calorie range, but I also spent the night with stomach cramps, frequently interrupted sleep, bizarre dreams and nightmares, and hallucinations.
So what did I do in the morning? I decided that the perfect breakfast after such a night would be a banana, coffee with skim milk which was two weeks past the sell-by date (hey, it still doesn't smell funny...), and a cheap, greasy Celeste Pizza-For-One.
Tasty, and still on track for calories, but I'm still having stomach cramps and indigestion.
