While working out at my gym, I suddenly became very dizzy. I also felt nauseous. I began to sweat profusely(I never sweat while I lift). I also experienced strong numbness and tingling in my hands. I felt short of breath and nearly passed out. The episode passed in about 10 minutes. It was very real and very scary. Do you have any ideas?
Could have been that you were tired from exercising maybe your blood sugar dropped if you had not eaten much that day. Hard to say maybe you should have a physical. Diabetes low blood sugar, low blood pressure, high blood pressure ,asthma, Heart related conditions. But this sounds like many symptoms from any one of these unless you can remember how long before you ate before working out i would ssume it was low blood sugar. But i am not a doc so really see your md if this were to happen when exercising alone or even driving that would not be good Check into it best wishes.
