Feeling dizzy, loss of balance and weakness after lifting weights. Taking medication for blood pressure and tachycardia. What is it?

My 32 yr old fiance was lifting weights today and felt like he pulled his trapezious muscles. Right afterwards he started feeling dizzy, spacy, hazy, unfocused, unsteady on his feet, wobbly, weak and had spatial issues. He had a hard time focusing his thoughts and typing a letter. He takes medication for high blood pressure and tachychardia. He takes Toprol. I had him take 2 aspirin immediately. It's been going on for about 8 hrs. now. He's been home resting. What could this be?

Thanks for writing to us.
The feeling of dizziness that you are having could be related to a middle ear disease, cervical spondylosis, electrolyte imbalance like hyponatraemia, etc. Please do consult your physician for proper investigations.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
