Today and yesterday I have gone lightheaded, feeling dizzy around three times, I have been a little stressed out recently but worried my lightheadedness could be down to something else. should I be concerned?

That's odd... Are you eating enough fruits and vegetables? Or getting enough iron? You may have an iron deficiency or something or your blood pressure might be a bit low

Thank you both for your replies, I will book an appointment with the doctor tomorrow, I do have an overactive thyroid, wondering if it could be due to that. Really appreciate both of your help

I've suffered from this for several years now and have fainted a couple of times. I had low blood pressure and was borderline anaemic, so it's worth going to your doctor and getting tests done.

For me now luckily it's gone away mostly. The only time it happens is if I don't eat for several hours.

Make sure you stand up slowly etc to avoid feeling dizzy even more.

If there's nothing obvious that could be contributing (been more active, not drank much, not eaten much, not sleept much, had some alcohol etc) and it's feeling intrusive or lasting a while (like not just the once and now you feel totally fine) then it's probably worth checking in with your GP. It's still most likely no big deal, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

Sounds like maybe you're feeling a bit stressed and emotional right now cos of that breakup so as long as is not getting in the way of things maybe see how you feel after a couple of days and give yourself a little extra tlc.
Does it feel like the dizziness came about at around the same time as the breakup? If so that would be a pretty good indication that it's connected. If not then maybe skip the wait and see and just book a GP appt. Honestly they take a little while anyway so you can anyways book, see how things go while you wait for the appt and cancel it off your feel fine.

Obviously don't go doing anything that would be risky if you got dizzy. No tightrope walking over alligator infested waters till you're feeling better!

Hope you feel better soon
