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.

am a femal that is 5 ft 2 in and 280 lbs. This morning I woke up to dizzyness. I still have dizzy spells from time to time, but am constantly light-headed and lightly thumping. Last night and today my right arm stays in a constant state inbetween normal and numb. Once and a while I have a pain in it but it is not often. I have been in and out of nausea or heartburn all day long. I was wondering if I should go to the ER for a heart problem?
