Dizzy While Running/Working Out
My 12 year old daughter is very active and practices Volleyball/Conditioning 3-4 times a week. Lately she has complained of feeling dizzy, wanting to throw up, worried about passing out while playing, running or conditioning. She doesn`t have these symptoms other wise. Any ideas?
Thank you for visiting NetWellness and for your question. You may want to make an appointment with your daughter's physician, as she may be having some issues with vertigo or perhaps she is just not eating enough. At any rate, a physical exam is needed to identify/rule out the source of her symptoms.
