The heartburn is unrelated

The dizziness may be related to your heart, or it may be due to inadequate calorie intake prior to your workout

It may also be from dehydration

Dr. Brims :

It could be due to an irregular heart beat, it may also be due to electrolyte abnormalities in your blood, blood tests would be required to determine the exact cause, as well as an EKG

Ask them to do an EKG and a complete metabolic profile

Dr. Brims :

Are you there?
