Brief Answer:
Please refer to the detailed answer below

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Your symptoms of light headedness could be due to low blood pressure, low blood sugar levels, inadequate nutrition or anemia.

I would like to suggest you to monitor your blood pressure as well as blood sugars during the time of your symptoms.

Also get a few tests done:
1. Complete Blood Count
2. HbA1c
3. Serum electrolytes
4. ECG

If you have a strong family history of diabetes as you have mentioned then altering sugar levels can be an important cause in your case.

No, it doesn't seem like a cardiac issue.
Try practicing Yoga/meditation to combat your anxiety and stress.

I hope this information will be helpful.

I ve had Fibromyalgia for about 25 years now and am doing so bad it s scary. I ve changed my diet over the years and eat really well, vegetarian, no nightshades, all organics, well balanced. I meditate and do Yoga and started pool therapy but I become a wreck, even when I take it easy. My mind is going. Memory loss and confusion and balance is awful. About 4 years ago I had a fall and got Complex Regional Pain Syndrome to go with it. My chronic sinusitis has become unbearable with roaring in my ears and insane sinusitis. At 58, I m getting scared my mind days are numbered. Sincerely, R. Jane Gagner
