Welcome to XXXXXXX forum.
Let me know the associated symptoms along with light head feeling.
Do you have sweating/ chest pain/ squeezing sensation in chest?
Do you have sneezing/ running nose/ blocked nose for most of the days in a month?
Do you have Electrocardiography (ECG) yet before? What was the report?
What was your fasting & postprandial blood sugar level?
What was your lipid profile status?
What is your blood pressure presently?

As you have borderline diabetes with raised cholesterol, there is high chances of heart disease also.
Light head feeling could be due to decreased blood supply to brain.
Localized sinusitis may also cause the same feeling.
You should consult with XXXXXXX medicine specialist/ neurologist & ENT surgeon simultaneously and should go for thorough check up.
You should go for blood sugar both fasting & postprandial, lipid profile, x XXXXXXX PNS view, CT/ MRI scan brain along with sinus status, carotid intima media thickness in both common carotid artery (this artery is present in neck and obstruction may cause decreased brain blood supply).
If neurological examination, ENT examination and all above prescribed investigations are normal, then possibility of panic attacks should be thought.
Abdomen gets upset due to anxiety and panic attacks.
Hope that helps.
Let me know if I can address any more concerns.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

I have been having pain in my 2 middle toes and below them at the ball of my foot. I had an mri and it showed fluid. I got a steroid injection on Jan 17th 2014. On March 19th I went to the Bay. I now have a redish area at the sight of the injection, it feels raw and raised and darker red dots and white scaly skin in areas and is a little itchy but hurts to scratch because of the raw feeling. Do you have any thoughts?

Hi, I have noticed in the last 6 months or so that after orgasm my heartbeat is very irregular, with gaps and then large thumps, lasts for about one minute. I haven't noticed any other irregular heatbeats. I sometimes get palpitations if I am very nervous, say before I speak up in a large room of people. I guess this isn't related but I have in the last 2 years seen consultants due to persistent pins and needles especially at night when I can only sleep on my back with my arms by my side, I have also suffered joint pains, MS, Lupus have all been ruled out (had an MRI scan and blood tests), but could the P&N's be related to a heart problem?
