    Queasy After Workout?

    Primal Fuel
    Wasn't sure whether to put this here or PB Odds N Ends.

    Went to gym this morning. My sugar felt "off" beforehand and I had the sweats. Tested my sugar and it was fine. Not feeling like myself. Decided to eat just a couple of macadamias (4). Went to gym, felt great on treadmill, but felt like I was going to bonk in weight room. Came home and thought maybe eating something would help alleviate the nausea. Slowly worked through a hard boiled egg and felt worse.

    WHAT GIVES? Except for wanting to puke, I feel fine.

    Advice?

    I don't know if this is the correct answer, but maybe the stuff I remember from having a bodybuilder ex-boyfriend might be useful?

    Do you think you got your blood pressure up too much when you were in the weight room? Mister X always had to be careful about how intensely he worked for how long, because that was something he had done in the past. And he didn't act like it was a pleasant thing.

    I found this article (Exercise Induced Nausea), which basically says what I remember my ex saying, but this sentence at the end struck me a little.
    If, as a weight lifter, you consistently experience post-workout nausea, remember that dehydration and (ironically) over-hydration or water intoxication can manifest itself as nausea after exercise.
    Do you think that's a possibility?

    I've got no advice, since I'm no guru, but if it were me, I'd see my doctor if it happens repeatedly. That just doesn't sound right.
    Your book club may have scintillating discussions. But my book club can drink your book club under the table.

    This happened to me once, and I was just dehydrated. I got clammy, cold and so nauseous I thought I was going to hurl on the bus lol. After that I made sure I not only drank my full water/BCAA preworkout, but had at least another full bottle during my workouts, and refill it after as well.

    I hope I'm not pregnant... yet

    Drinking water made me feel even sicker.

    queasy did not pass until dinner. We stopped at Good Earth for some homeopathic stuff for hubby, and they had some all natural apple cider for sampling. I had some and it made me feels tons better. Have no idea what that was all about.

    When I feel this way I always drink one Vita Coco Coconut water. It does the trick every single time.

    It's unlikely, but maybe you drank too MUCH water (hyponatremia). The sugar and electrolytes in the cider may have helped. Or maybe your blood sugar was just low, I'm not really sure.

    Sugar was fine the whole time (I checked). I drank maybe 30 oz yesterday. However, the water WAS cold. Maybe that did it? Cold water, hot belly.

    That has happened to me and my son. My son more and I think its because we had consumed too many carbs and not enough protein before the workout.
