Feeling faint when exercising including walking

Hi,

I feel faint/light headed/turn pale etc when I do exercise even if it is light such as walking (although it doesn't occur lifting weights). My blood sugar level is normal both before and afterwards, same with blood pressure. It isn't dehydration in fact my symptoms worsen when I drink lots of fluid yet no difference when taking electrolyte powder so I don't think it is over hydration. I'm reasonably fit 20 something male and have had these symptoms for over 10 years. Blood test is normal.

Thanks for your replies in advance.

Could it be a panic attack or a lack of blood flow to your brain?

Hi John, yes I have often wondered if it is anxiety related as I do suffer from illogical anxiety however I still experience it after I have had one too many drinks.
