The 5 Possible Causes of Dizziness After Exercise

Workout sessions use up plenty of energy and can leave you feeling worn out. However, it’s not okay to suffer dizziness after physical exercises. Though this symptom doesn’t indicate anything serious, some cases can be alarming. Dizziness post-exercise is often caused by poor breathing, fatigue, or dehydration.

However, other times it may be triggered by pre-existing factors such as pregnancy, low blood sugar, low pressure, dehydration, etc.?

For instance, during the first 15 minutes of vigorous activity, the body sources energy from the glucose present in the blood and muscles. As soon as the body uses up your blood sugar, it sources glucose from other reserves. Therefore, the absence of glucose can cause energy deficiencies and trigger dizziness.

Understanding the Causes of Fainting
Fainting occurs when one loses consciousness for a short time due to insufficient or lack of oxygen in their brain. It is a widespread issue, responsible for 3% of ER visits and 6% of hospitalizations. Though some causes of fainting are medical-related, fainting occurs even to the most healthy individuals.

Syncope is the medical word for fainting, however, it is more frequently referred to as “blacking out” or “passing out.” Fainting lasts a few seconds but may extend to minutes.

A victim may experience dizziness and drowsiness (presyncope) before going unconscious (syncope). Victims recover in a matter of minutes, soon after first aid for fainting. If they do not have an underlying medical problem, they may not require medical attention.

Fainting is seldom a reason for alarm, but it might be a sign of a significant medical condition. If you have no fainting history and have gone into syncope more than once in the last month, consult your physician.
