Brief Answer:
Giddiness could be due to low sugar levels.

Detailed Answer:

Thankyou for posting in helathcaremagic.

AS your TMT and Echo are normal,cardiac problem is excluded.You are also taking BP tablet.

Blood sugar of 140 before breakfast,i.e,fasting is not normal.You should go for Glucose tolerance test(GTT) to confirm Diabetes.

The symptoms that you have experienced in the morning,are most probably due to hypoglycaemia,low blood sugar levels.

The second possibility is Alchohol withdrawl.

But,i request you to get GTT and come back after the report.I would like to know the BP medicine also.

I will clarify further once i see your GTT report.

Wish you good health
