I am a 17 year old male. Yesterday, I was at the gym, and I believe I over-exerted myself. I went swimming and played basketball. After 2 hours, I felt very faint. I was lightheaded and sweating profusely, had trouble with breathing and could not walk. I sat down for 30 minutes and was able to go home after that. However, the day after, although I am now able to move around again and breathe easier, I am still quite lightheaded. I was wondering if this was normal. Is there anything I can do to quicken the recovery process? I have decided to stay away from the gym and take rest for the next few days. But, I am worried about being lightheaded despite it being 24 hours since I over-exerted myself. Any of your advice would be helpful. Thank you.
