What causes light headed and tiredness in children?
User rating for this question
My 10 year old son for the past 2 weeks has been experiencing light headed with tiredness. It seems to be happening daily but only once or twice and lasts for about 30 seconds. Other than that, he shows no other signs of being ill and he's still very active.
