Dizziness, weakness in knees while playing football. Brain issue?

Hello I play football on a regular basis! Sometimes in football I have spells that don t last long seconds at best but where I feel something is wrong! For example I was playing with my family had an extremely easy chance to score and instead I didn t feint but my legs went and I fell to the ground! It is happening more regularly for example when I score I can t celebrate properly because I get dizzy is this a brain or heart problem?

Thank you for posting your query.

Based on your symptoms, we need to evaluate your brain as well as heart.

If the heart pumping is not good or if there are irregularities in the heart, these episodes may occur.

Also, seizures (abnormal electrical activity in the brain) may cause similar symptoms.

Please get detailed evaluation done to determine the exact cause.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
