    your symptoms are all anxiety related so all these medical checks may prove fruitless except to ease your worrying. But better safe than sorry eh.  I think a lot of people get dizzy spells and chest tightening because they forget to breathe.  If it happens again breathe slowly in and out for a few minutes and the anxiety should subside a bit.
