My teen daughter is 15-year-old, 5'5" tall with 115 Ibs, a healthy gymnast, she has done gymnastics from her two years of age. She eats well, does not drink soda except every great once in a while. She has been experiencing shortness of breath, leading to some dizziness while at practice. Last night after completing a floor routine (that she has done hundreds of times before), she became short of breath, she says her leg or ankle completely gave out, and her sides both hurt a great deal.
What could be the cause? I am not sure if it is a make an appointment immediately type thing. Or if I should schedule it for later asthma has crossed my mind. I do not know what questions to be asking? She is not under any medications takes Tylenol for occasional headaches.

After going through your history mostly, it is a due weakness, but if she experiences breathlessness at rest, then you need to consult. Right now, you should give her multivitamin supplements like iron, Folic acid, and Vitamin B complex. Do not let her practice empty stomach, always give her something to boost up her energy level. Follow-up again if she experiences shortness of breath at rest.
