Can't stop shivering 8/13/2007 3:57PM Reply | Return to Index | Report Post
I went for a run today at noon. It was sunny and warm... 70's.

I've been fighting a stomach bug for two days with diahriah and a mild fever.

Now 60 minutes after the run my hands are totally pale and I can't stop shivering. Am I in real trouble here or can I gut this out?

Go do another run. You're obviously being a wussnatch.

Had this happen once. Eats lots and lots of sugar. Are you having cramps anywhere. When I had this happen it was 95 degrees but I was shivering and cramping everywhere below my lower half. It was my first run over 20 miles haha. Good Luck.

Maybe you've got the flu???

I had this happen once when I wasn't sick...the common answer here was I was probably dehydrated. Best of luck.

You are underweight! You anorexic skinny-ass! It's people like you that are making health care so unfordable. Try eating something. Let me spell it out for you. Calories in > Calories out = putting some meat on those bones.

Turns out I had food poisoning or some virus and was way way dehydrated from crapping water all the time and having a fever. Going for a hilly 13 mile base run made me even more dehydrated. My own fault. I got an IV, and I'm doing way better. I could have gone into shock if a co-worker hadn't been on the spot with a blanket and helping me get to the hospital. I was shaking uncontrollably and my hands were going numb. Not smart for me to try to run, but I was trying to do all the right things, hydration, etc. Perhaps, this cautionary tale will help someone else avoid ending up in the E.R. I sure didn't see it coming... just grinding out another run, like so many of us do.

And yes, I'm waaay skinny. They said that makes me a little more prone to dehydration.

Cheers,
