Dizziness, weakness, sickness, troubled breathing. What can be done?

Whenever I try and exercise I quickly start feeling dizzy, weak, sick and have trouble breathing after only around a minute. I don t really know what to do as I just quit competing in dance competitions which included around 20 hours of practise a week and while I would sometimes get this same thing sometimes during that, running is proving a big problem for me. I want to start competing in soccer but this is really holding me back.

Welcome to the forum.
Dizziness, weakness and shortness of breath can be there due to multiple reasons
1. Anaemia- reduced blood hemoglobin levels. This can be ruled out by getting a complete blood picture done.
2.Cardiac problem- Missing heart beats are one of the common causes of dizziness or it might happen due to some irregularities in the cardiac impulse. This can be ruled out on having an ECG done.
3.Weakness, any infections in the recent past, lack of proper regular meals, as a side effect of some medicines, etc.
All these factors will have to be ruled out with the help of your physician to come to the actual problem for treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
