Lightheaded and headache after doing gym. What happened?

Hello, My husband is 52 and was at the gym doing a very difficult class. He started this class about one month ago. He didn t eat before class and when he was there he was doing pull ups. He felt a strange feeling in his head. He walked around and felt very light headed. He then got a severe headache which lasted more than 24 hours. He still hasn t felt back to normal. What happened?

HI Dear thanks for your question,your husband 52 year old went to gym for a difficult class without eating any thing ,Dear the cause of headache could be hypoglycemia (decrease in blood glucose level)
which he developed during the heavy exercises along with the exhaustion he developed.Tell him to eat something before going to gym,and heavy exercises are not recommended for him at age of 52.He should go for light exercises.
