Hypotension: regardless of how petite you are your blood pressure is quite low. This very likely is the cause of your dizziness. Treatment is increase fluids and liberalize salt in your diet. Fluids 1st we all get plenty of salt in a western diet! If you are otherwise feeling well with normal exercise tolerance the right arm tingling may be unrelated. If your Ekg is abnormal you will be getting follow testing
