Good morning Doctor

Hi Adrian- 1st, congrats on your decision to "get back active". That's good. I strongly recommend  that you see your general doctor regarding your dizziness & vomiting after activity. You're probably just overdoing it, but GET THIS CHECKED! Consider activity less aggressive than baseball or soccer, (walking, biking , swimming, etc), possibly including supervision from personnel trainers. You need to probably be less aggressive initially, & see how your body responds. Include your wife possibly in walking or other exercise as you PROPERLY work your way back to fitness & where you want to be.. Good luck,..Dr. Bob Weil
