You can definitely get light headed or feint from a panic attack but you would be feeling an intense sense of panic/fear before that happens.

I would 100% tell your doctors though.

I get insanely light headed sometimes when I stand up.. and can have almost seizure like symptoms.  I thought I did have a seizure a couple months back, legit blacked out and hit my head badly and have memories of shaking like I was having a seizure, but I guess it wasn't.. so they think I have some disorder where standing up causes extreme light headedness.

Can also happen if I move my head quickly without standing up, particularly if I am bending down and go up quickly... but it's happened once or twice when I sit down quickly as well (and in fact, when I've gotten in my car quickly and swung my head sideways fast.)

Do you have a specific diagnoses for your psychosis filler?

It sounds like schizophrenia but I'm not some expert on that.

The "seeing connections where there aren't any" is a sort of tell-tale sign of early schizophrenia though, I do know that.. as I had a friend who would do that really intensely, thought minor coincidences were definitely conspiracies.  He also smoked way too much pot and I sent him some articles about schizophrenia and pot and early signs and it kinda fucked up our friendship.  He was also a thankless prick so it wasn't the end of the world, was just trying to help the guy.

mostly just what I've figured myself over time. the dr heard me thinking out loud and I guess there's some spectrum of hearing voices. thinking out loud is on there somewhere. they also said I was paranoid about things I was paranoid about at the time.

around jr high I couldn't close my eyes for too long without imagining something terrible happening in front of me. would happen especially during a shower while washing away soap. I got past that by telling myself that real life isn't that interesting and there's some monster I'll be dead  :lol it worked :)

I think I've had a lot of "fixes" I've come up with to get around what's going on in my head. some of the fixes could have been done better.

I'd ad least consider quitting the weed man; I know that's a rough proposition but it is linked to psychosis.

probably seems worse than it is for you guys. I just have to make sure I get proper sleep at night and have some help taking care of mom. I feel calmness

if I were going out to the beach, I wouldn't smoke anything. maybe I should go

This whole year, a lot of stuff piles up. You're not alone. I've been midway through a day at work, and suddenly just feel like crying, and leaving, but I don't know where I'd go.
