Hi, I've been having a problem for a little more than 8 months and I can't seem to get a doctor to find out any issues with me...
Basically, during my workouts, I am completely exhausted after just a few sets of resistance training. I've been an avid gym goer for years and have been in good health up until this last 8 months or so. I used to be able to lift weights and feel absolutely fine. Not exhausted or anything, just a general mild tiredness from the good workout.
However, lately after just a couple of sets, I'm exhausted and don't feel like I can go on. I used to only take 30 second rests between sets but now I have to take 5 minute rests between sets in order to let my heart rate come down. After just one set I'm breathing like I just ran a mile, my heart is pounding and I get a disoriented feeling sort of like light headedness. So, I rest about 5 minutes and continue on with my workout.
By the end of the workout I'm completely exhausted, have a mild case of nausea and my heart rate feels like it's way up there. I have even decreased the intensity of my workouts and this still happens. I used to weight train 3 days a week and do kickboxing twice a week, but I now only do weight training 2 days a week. I don't think I can even make it through a day of intense kickboxing training right now... I'd pass out when I used to feel just fine.
I've been taking time off from working out too because I thought I may be overtraining, but even after 2 weeks off with nothing but rest, I come back feeling even worse when I used to come back feeling MUCH stronger from the time off.
I've had some normal stress recently... i've moved to a new state, took on a new job, am moving again in 2 weeks, planning a marriage, etc... and I started having bouts of nausea that I had checked out by 2 doctors. I've had blood work, urine tests, stool samples an Upper GI X-ray, Ultrasound and Upper GI Endoscopy that all came back 100% fine with no issues. The nausea has gone away in the past month, but I can't help but think this may all be linked?
Does anyone else have similar problems as I am having? Please help...
