Answer to your Health Question

Question: My daughter is 12 years old. She is slightly overweight and is in the school's trim and fit programme which requires her to exercise every alternate day in the morning. One of the daily exercise routine is running round the school. Recently, she experienced momements of giddiness together with temporary lost of focus of her sight and hearing after her exercise routine. It has happened twice. What could have caused this? Is it a serious health problem? Should I send her to the hospital for a check-up? Alison

Answer: Dear Alison,

Exercising strenuously and not breathing properly when working out can cause dizziness. When these symptoms appear it is important to stop and rest.

If symptoms are persistent and do not go away it is recommended to visit a doctor so her or she can do a physical exam.
