Brief Answer:
Needs more details..

Detailed Answer:

I have gone through your query and can understand your concern..

As per your complain if there is lightheadedness immediately after wisdom tooth extraction then it can be probably due to sudden lowering of blood pressure..

Other causes that can probably cause lightheadedness and nausea can be dehydration while long hours of being empty stomach or starvation before exercise can be a cause..

But in case if you had the symptoms later on, it can be related to other causes..

Please answer the following questions so that I can guide you better..

1. After how many days did you experience the symptoms?
2. Where was the pain, was it in the extraction area or some other place?
3. Were the symptoms short lived or still persistent?
4. Are you taking any medication or do you have any medical problems?
5. Does it happen always now after you exercise?

Please revert back with answers..

Hope this helps..
