Hi and Welcome, Stephanie! :)
You sound like you may have had a few things going on with you - that lightheadedness, 'almost' passing out, and numbness and tingling in your hands? Seems like an anxiety/panic attack. I've visited that area before, it's really not much fun. When you are scared, your body reacts and goes into a 'fight or flight' mode and that sort of explains the way you'd feel.
Do you have any acid reflux? Like a burning in your esophagus, throat, or heartburn? Do you notice that certain foods cause this reaction? Do you seem to need antacids a lot to ease this discomfort or pain? Any trouble with swallowing? Many of these are symptoms that go along with GERD. I'm not a Dr. so these are only ideas for you to think about
and mention to your own Dr.
These are just a couple of thoughts for you - there are many great members here, that will perhaps come along and share their thoughts with you.
Good luck and my best wishes to you!
Hugs, Teri :)
