Of course if you are worried or are still having dizziness or other symptoms you should see your doctor. Only tests, EKG, etc. can determine whether you had a heart attack or not. It sounds to me, more like "syncope." A fainting spell/episode creating a rapid change in blood pressure. Possibly the shower was too hot and this contributed to the episode.
