After the race we were on a mission to go home shower, grab some lunch, and see Divergent.
|Run buddy is so cute- she is 30ish - I'm jealous :)|
When hubby and I arrived home after the movie I was ready for my jammies and stretched out on the sofa.
Around 8 p.m."it" started...
The ganglion cysts in my wrists were swelling up bigger than I have seen them.
My hands were feeling numb. I started popping ibuprofen and decided Taco Bell was it for dinner.
I have been caught in the rain twice before and both times something similar happened to me. Good thing I blog :) July 31st I was caught in a downpour and went from hot to freezing. That night a few hours later I got to feeling pretty sick with chills and sweats.The next day my wrists were were hurting all day and I remember I couldn't do any weights at the gym. I thought it was a fluke. The second time was this past December at the Tacky Light Run 6K, it was a drench run from the start. I didn't get as sick, but my wrists blew up and I wondered what the heck kind of connection there was between the rain and my cysts.
The only thing I can figure is when nerves take over I am squeezing my hands super tight.
Anyway back to present, I am laying on the sofa stiff and my hands are killing me. Time to give up and go to bed. I got up and the sweats, chills, and nausea started...I was getting fuzzy and light headed. I tried again a few minutes later and I couldn't do it, getting up made me nauseous and I ended up getting sick to my stomach. Seriously, I sprawled across the sink splashing water all me, I was feeling pretty funky...
Hubby was upset and thought I was dehydrated, but I drank about 50 oz. after the race.
Waking up Sunday the difference was night and day. Luckily my stiffness went away with a good night's sleep, but my wrists were still swollen, so common sense won out and I took a rest day.
Monday after work I went for a four mile run so all is well now. Thank goodness this episode didn't last long.
Anyone have these cysts in their wrists? or have any experiences getting sick after you run? or see something I am missing? or think it's weird I get sick so many hours later?
Do you think the real problem was Taco Bell for dinner? (seriously the food was fine :)
Till next time,
