Detailed Answer:
Hello

After going through the medical details provided by you I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that all the symptoms like dizziness, fatigue, palpitations etc can very well occur due to electrolyte levels derangements.

It's advisable to get serum electrolytes levels checked and also an ecg. Low levels of potassium are not good for heart health.

I hope this will answer your query.
