Dizzy When Inhaling

Lately I've noticed that when I do anything that increases my heart rate and I inhale, I get dizzy. My teeth also get that tingly feeling and I sometimes get light headed. It's been increasing in frequency over the past few weeks, which coincides with starting to do a cardiovascular workout at the gym twice a week. I'm wondering if this is my body's way of getting used to the unfamiliar strain of the gym (I've never been the active type, though I'm not fat or anything.) Perhaps it's blood-pressure related?

I'm going to go to the doctor if the trend continues, so don't tell me to go to the doctor. But if it's just de regur then there's no worries.

    http://xfile007.blogspot.com/2006/05/feeling-dizzy-after-cardiovascular.html Slowly warm up and work up to your given pace, don't just jump into sprinting right away and cool down by walking around. If its during exercise you may want to check into the doctor or go at a slower pace in the mean time, especially if you've never exercised before and not used to it. Remember you got a life time to workout and exercise so take it slowly for now and increase over time.

    You're aware of the distinction between during and after cardio that that article implies though, right? That's an important one.

    I'm not an idiot.

    I know what during and after a workout is.
