I didn't get any reply, think you are away; therefore I am posting an answer.

Dizziness, palpitation, abdominal pain, fits etc. are well documented side effects associated with this drug.

Any new cardiac or neurological symptoms after taking any drug should be reported to the doctor and in your case, you better go to ER to have a physical evaluation, at least an EKG should be done to rule out any adverse effects of Diflucan on your heart; as it can induce arrhythmias in heart which can lead to dizziness and chest symptoms.

Good luck

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
