View Full Version : Exercise making me sick?

I've recently taken up running again. I'm getting in to it gradually, alternating running and walking. Yesterday I went for about 40 minutes, with about 7 minutes of running, total. I felt great when I finished, but within a few hours of getting home, I felt a cold/sinus infection starting up. By midnight I was miserable, and today I'm dizzy, wheezy and full of aches.

Is there any possibility that the exertion of my run somehow triggered this?

I'm not much into 'alternative' medicine, but I've heard of instances where you can release toxins or bugs that were already in your body waiting for a chance to strike.

I'm hoping it's just a bad coincidence.

Give running a second chance when you start to feel better...I'm almost sure it was just a coincidence! Best wishes!

I'm not giving up yet. I think I just had something incubating from the day before. Sometimes I hate having to work around humans. They're like plague rats, lol.

If you were fighting something prior to running maybe the extra bit of stress you put on your body triggered it but I don't think it warrants giving it up. It sounds like you are easing into it, that's good. I have noticed when I increase exercise quickly I sometimes feel run down, it takes your body a little while to get used to a new routine.

Wow, the same thing just happened to me too. I think it was allergies or that I've had a bug. My throat is quite sore. I only jogged for a few minutes like you did.

Hi : Ya know I woudn't be surprised if Allergies aren't contributing to the sore throat feeling and what a exercise. I couldn't jog if someone paid me. I stick to the stationary bike and other cardiovascular , low impact. God love ya .

Plague Rats thats just how I feel too. Although summer opens up a bit more socially for me. After a long winter of hybernation.

Are any of you participating in a Pulmonary Rehab program with your doctors overlooking, or referral?

Well, I just got back from another run/walk session (ralking?). Felt pretty damn good...

I'm not doing any rehab overseen by a doctor. Not sure what that entails, but my pfts are still pretty good (FEV 107%, FEV1 86%), so I may not be at the point of needing something like that yet.

Good for you, DanainSeattle. I'm glad you are still running! I run about 40 miles/week and I don't do Rehab or anything like that either. My pft's are also fev112/fvc111 so I guess that's why. Isn't it amazing how good you feel after a run? I started running races this spring. I actually just placed 1st (women overall) in a 5K last week - go me!!!! I've found that running races keep me motivated, and give me something to work toward. Have you thought about racing??? Hope you are well - happy trails!

I just got a prescription for Allegra and it does help. Took it yesterday and went to the park and WOW, I didn't have nearly as much post nasal drip as usual, and I'm on the lower dose. It works better than Claritin for me.

Often, a person is exposed to a virus well before they notice symptoms. So it's entirely possible it is just coincidence. On the other hand, yes, exertion can help your body dump toxins (like drug residues from taking medication) and that can make you feel ill. Just think of how bad drug withdrawal feels.

I'm a big fan of running. I recently had a similar experience, only it was when I woke up the next day that I felt a problem. Granted, I just came out of an infection, so I bet it was because of said infection that I had a problem. I don't see how I can get my FEV1s back to normal (about 118) without exercising, so I can't really stop.
