Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Exercise is very good, one of which is to optimize the work of the heart. The heart is a very vital organ that plays a role in pumping oxygen-rich blood throughout the body. With good heart work, you will not easily feel dizzy or weak.
Dizziness and weakness that appear during exercise are most likely a sign of inadequate nutrition. This condition can occur, for example, if you exercise on an empty stomach or drink less. As is known, sports activities, including futsal will drain quite a lot of energy. In addition, in exercising, the speed of metabolism in your body will increase so that sweat production will increase. This, if not supported by adequate nutrition and fluid intake, can cause you to fall into a state of hypoglycemia and dehydration. Both of these things can cause you to feel dizzy and weak.
In addition to the two conditions above, your complaint could also arise due to other reasons, for example:
Hypotension (low blood pressure)
Heat stroke (excessive heat exposure that causes organ dysfunction), for example when you exercise in a hot environment
Anemia (low blood hemoglobin), for example due to bleeding, lack of red blood cell production, or increased destruction of red blood cells in the body
Abnormalities of heart function, for example due to valve or heart rhythm disorders
Vertigo (dizziness that occurs due to disturbances in the balance center in the brain or inner ear)
Viral or bacterial infection
Somatoform disorders, and so on
If this complaint greatly limits your activities and exercise, you should not let it drag on. Immediately consult a doctor for immediate treatment. Doctors can also perform laboratory tests, heart records, and so on so that treatment can be carried out properly.
At this point, you can continue exercising, but make sure you don't exercise on an empty stomach. First, consume enough water and food to support your strenuous activities. Also do an adequate warm-up before exercising. Also balance the steps above with regular sleep, stay away from cigarettes and alcohol, do good stress management.
Hope it helps ya..
