Risks?: At your age, unless you have a heart condition, you should be at very low risk of cardiac arrest. Some things that can increase your risk include nutritional imbalances from an eating disorder and being exposed to drugs that affect your heart, like cocaine. If you have some exposure to these or other unusual circumstances, then you should seek emergency care.

Rest and relax: When you are bloated, gas goes up to your esophagus and could be breathed in and cause your feeling of sob. The fear causes hyperventilation, dizziness, faintish feeling and some numbness of face, fingers and feet. The nausea is simply from the belatedness. Drink some fluid if can, have some antacid and relax. Your risks at 18 is low.

Dizzy: You may have post prandial hypotension where eating can lower your blood pressure and make you dizzy, confused and nauseous.
