My blood pressure is generally in the normal range, but I can't check it now. I have had blood work about 3 or 4 months ago and all test were normal. I have had problems with hypoglycemia many years ago.

Thank you for the information

Among the causes of light headed ness , some common causes are fall of blood pressure, low blood glucose, irregular heart rhythm, transient ischemic attacks, anxiety or tension state.

Periodic chest pain may come from heart causes also.

You need a physical examination along with some investigation like blood glucose estimation, EKG or others as the doctor feels necessary after the physical .

So I feel you should go to a medical facility to have a check up.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
