    It sounds like anxiety to me. The lightheadedness and the sensation in your throat are what I get when I am having a panic attack. If you are really worried, contact your doctor and talk to him about it.

    It get just the same feel ok not stressed or worried and suddenly I go lightheaded and dizzy and feel strange ,then I panic but try not too ,but I believe it is anxiety have had it so many times over the years that if it was anything else would have had other symptoms by now .so try to get prospective of what is happening and do not worry about it as you will only make is worse and it will stay with you much longer.

    I can really relate to what you're going through right now! Happens to me a lot. It's scarey when you don't feel anxious or aren't in a stressful situation yet you start to get symptoms like this and you begin to worry. Anxiety can hit you in all kinds of ways, it's horrible when it happens but you have to try to cope! Here's my advice (i used to get this all the time): 

    Drink plenty of water and make sure you are eating normal portions of food.

    Remember that the spot on your arm is just a spot. (I know it's difficult, i used to think a freckle meant I had cancer!!!) The reason it hurts is've been poking it haha! If it really starts to bother you place something cold on it so it starts to numb the area.

    The most likely reason you're feeling light headed and hot is because your brain is trying to assess to symptoms, but because of your anxiety its overanalysing and making you panic uncounsioussly. It sounds really ridiculous, i know. But that's what's happening hence the strange feelings your having. I absolutley promise you you're okay. Honestly, I used to get things like this all the time!
