Should I stop exercising if I get dizzy?
If you experience dizziness during exercise, stop whatever you are doing and rest. Keep your head above your heart. If the dizziness does not respond to drinking fluids or eating something and does not go away after an hour, contact a doctor.
Can exercise trigger vertigo?
Specific workouts, unfortunately, can cause positional vertigo. Many individuals experience BPPV when they regularly do exercises involving severe and sudden head movements. Most people experience vertigo because the inner ear crystals are not attached to anything, and they can move freely inside the ear.
