My wife gets headache , dizziness, fast heart beat frequently

about 3 weeks ago after having 5-6 light beers at the night she had dizziness , headache and fast heart beat which I thought probably was normal because of the alcohol.since that time she has not drunken anything alcoholic but at least once a day she has this extreme dizziness , headache and fast heart beat.i measured her blood pressure but everything seems to be ok. is it something serious?

I hope it isn't anything serious. Other than taking her to a doctor asap to make sure it isn't anything life threatening, when she gets dizzy like that, try giving her a candy with sugar (not that artificial stuff). I get a little hypoglycemic now and then and just simply sticking a candy in my mouth - sometimes under my tongue coz I think maybe it works faster - helps. Could also be a panic attack. They can happen even though you aren't stressed or at times you don't even think you're anxious about anything.

Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.

I sometimes feel this sudden sinking feeling in my chest region .. specially along the windpipe and below. It occurs almost 1-2 times daily and lasts for hardly 1-2 seconds. I'm a heart patient detected of HOCM and i also have some gastric problems .. is this feeling related to my heart rythm or is it because of the gastric problem. Rarely it's accompanied with dizziness but goes away within few seconds. Pl advice.
