My son passed out for the first time in Feb. at baseball practice he was taking by ambulance to ER all test were normal followed up with cardiologists and echocardiogram was normal, this past Tuesday while at football practice he had another episode never passed out just felt dizzy and light headed his trainer suggested to get his sugar checked we did and it was fine his pediatrician thought he might of been dehydrated and wanted us to follow up with cardiologist. We go in the morning for that appt. just wondering if anyone else ever experienced this kind of stuff.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Since he seems like a very active kid, the problem could be simple. For example he may need to eat more calories and hydrate more often. Its also important that athletes have regular bowel movements. If they do not, it can cause headaches, fatigue and loss of energy.
The cardiologist may find more answers as well.
