Had episode at work. Cold sweat, heart palp, dizziness and nausea. Almost blacked out and had to sit down. Could this be from metformin? Not diabetic.

In brief: Many reasons

Did you check your blood glucose and vital signs after the spell? The episode could be due to poor nutrition, hypoglycemia, drugs, medications, seizure, vasovagal response, arrhythmia, anxiety, panic disorder, etc.
