    Glandular Fever!

    Hi All,

    Just been diagnosed with this, bit of a bummer because I come from quite an active lifestyle. Ive now been told no gym for up to 2-3 mths.

    anyone else had this? Are you now 100% as some people on internet sites seem to think they never get back to the same fitness levels as before?

    Any positive comments appreciated.

    Thanks

    Crappy illness. Had it a many years ago and I dunno about returning to original fitness. I had it when I was 16, lost my place in the rugby team, then came back, trained my arse off and got my place back.

    Depends on the severity of it I suppose.

    i had thgis whilst i was studying for my degree took about 4 years to finally shift it, as really knock you about and put me way behind on course work, so had to work doubly hard to catch up.

    you will regain full fitness but just takes time and work, i found that when i was feeling good and not struck down with i would train hard, and then when i was feeling rough i would just stop and rest and wait a month or so til i was feeling better then go back to training.

    make sure you have a good diet with plenty of vitamins etc and plenty of fluids..........well it seemed to help me

    Been in bed lol!

    When you say it knocked you out what do you mean?

    The last 10-12 days ive had a killer sore throat, bad head, aches and pains etc. But im getting over that now and feel alot better. I feel tired alot which is normal I understand but I definately dont feel knocked out. Does this mean I dont have it as bad as some of you guys which say you couldn't do anything for months and months?

    Cheers
