Anytime that you have chest pain with dizziness, it is a good idea to get it checked out. It really just sounds like anxiety from the chest pain (which could be any number of things), but it really is better to be safe than sorry. I would call your doc or go to an ER. Hope you feel better soon! Good Luck!

I have the feeling of too much fluid in my throat. It usually starts after b fast with a rising fluid feeling-it does not burn. Sometimes my stomach will burn first and then it starts. It doesnt happen at nite or during nite-wake up fine but its always after I have eaten. If I drink over 2 cups of liquid-feel like its overflowing. I am 65, female. Just had endoscopy and barium swallow done-showed absolutely nothing. No hernia, ulcer, irration or narrowing of esphag. and all went down as normal. It is driving me nuts. When it starts and it does most days, it last all day. Sometimes a little food will help. Doesnt matter what I eat, but that I eat! Usually after have swallowed all day, my chest area feels irratated and have felt uncomfortable on the right side of espha, under left breastbone-sometimes feel a cold sensation or just uncomfortable feeling in chest area. dr said he is not saying that it is not acid reflux but that the test did not detect any of it.

after sex i very suddenly became light headed, spinning out and dizzy and had to sit down. also had intense lower abdominal pressure and pain/discomfort (during and after sex) and constipated feeling (small possibility of being due to slightly changed eating habits past couple of days). also had a light sweat and felt very hot, but 10 minutes later after it subsided i became very cold and clammy...? i used to get dizzy spells due to low blood pressure but this one lasted about 10 minutes and was much worse.
