Extreme nausea and headache after exercise:
ansukepp posted:
My 18 year old son has started and exercise regime and is extremely nauseated and has a bad headache. He is overweight and I want to know if I should be worried.
Rich Weil, MEd, CDE responded:
You ought to call his doctor. He's certainly not supposed to feel this way after exercise. He may have just overdone it, but his doctor should be the judge of that since his doctor knows his health status best. To play it safe go ahead and give the doctor a call. That way you'll know for sure if you should be worried or not and put your mind at ease.

Take care,
