Son's dilemma

My Son has played football through school and recently joined the Marine Corps. He has passed Basic and started into advanced training which includes rigorous water training. The first week he passes out in the pool, the Doc says he has low blood sugar and he was concerned about his EKG so he scheduled him to see a heart spec. while waiting for the appointment he finds if he does anything strenuous he somtimes feels like he could pass out again. Any ideas. Worried Dad. Thanks

Re: Sons delima

I don't really know what might cause this. Have you considered stress since he is in advanced training? Stress and anxiety can do horrible things to your mind and body. Other than this, Mitral Valve Prolapse can cause dizziness and passing out in some people. I wonder what the EKG showed that caused concern? Was it just showing PVCs or extra beats? I know how worried and concerned you must be and I wish both you and your son the best!
