sudden dizziness and pulse racing

Hi please help, I had a dizzy spell where I had to grab onto the wall so not to fall, I panicked and felt my pulse racing, the color drained from my face, I got very nervous. I sat down for a little bit and tried to calm down. My pulse settled down but I'm still a bit lightheaded and of course very nervous, can anybody help?

Re: sudden dizziness and pulse racing

You need to be evaluated by a physician, sometimes these symptoms can be associated with a life threatening condition.

Re: sudden dizziness and pulse racing

Thanks, went in to see my family practice doctor this morning, he did an ekg said it looked normal but is referring me to a cardiologist for further testing to rule out problems with the heart. So thank you very much for responding to my post. It's a bit scarry when these things happen.

Thank you

Re: sudden dizziness and pulse racing

Hi with dizziness this serious perhaps a trip to the emergency room might be in order to be sure there is no impending stroke, heart attack or other serious problem.

Re: sudden dizziness and pulse racing

Thanks went to my regular doc today, he did an ekg, stated it was normal but he still wants to do refer me to a cardiologoist to do further testing he said just to rule out the heart. I've had vertigo in the past so we don't know if this is vertigo cause I'm still lightheaded. But I feel better after the ekg showed normal. Now trying to take it easy and wait to see the cardiologist.

Thank you for your reply and concern,
Marrie12
