Nausea During Endurance Training
0

10 posts in this topic

Hi,

For the last few years (after diagnosis) I've been getting awful naseau during long bike rides or hikes. I can't figure out what to do. It's frustrating because now I am able to build muscle, but the nausea just wipes me out. 


Everything I read online addresses nausea after a workout, not during. It usually starts once I eat, so I suppose I could not eat, but that doesn't work either.

 

I am wary of gels because of the chemicals in them (I can't drink gatorade or soda for example). But I'm also not sure what the issue is.

 

Is it simply too much for me? Any thoughts?

 

Thanks!

Have you hit the wall, so to speak, when you are getting the nausea? Can you time your rides/track your HR, etc. to pin point when it is happening? It is possible you are doing too much.

Do you mean it starts during the hike/ride once you've eaten? If so I sympathise, I'm a distance runner and I can't eat anything solid while I run. I can't have more than one gel during a session either (think it's those chemicals) without 'protest', shall we say, so that isn't a particularly good solution for me either. What do you eat the day before and the morning of a session? Finding a good carby dinner and breakfast might help :) 

Also, are you well hydrated? If you are wary of commercial electrolyte drinks then try: 500ml boiling water, 3 teaspoons sugar and 1 teaspoon salt mixed together and cooled (of course!) You can add squash or concentrate to make it taste better.

I ride. What are you eating before and during your rides?

Thank you for your replies!

 

I'm certain it's not over-exertion since it happens other times as well, though it always helps to just sit sill.

 

I'm honestly not very particular about what I eat before, just so long as I get enough calories in to hold me over. I usually eat later in the evening too just to be sure. My next ride I'm thinking of eating a home cooked pile of mildly spiced soft rice, well cooked veggies and fish the night before.

 

I do suspect that drinking caffeine in the morning does something. That's just been really hard to test because usually these longer rides/hikes involve getting up early. I need a substitute.

KCG91 - thank you for the drink recipe! I will try this out. I find when biking, drinking something sweet doesn't go down well so I might balance the sugar/salt ratio a bit more.

I forgot to add, during bike rides I've tried everything - bananas, lunch, no lunch, bars. Nothing works. I also find that if I wait for others to eat lunch that seems to aggravate things too, though that might be because I drink too much water since we're stopped.

Well, I do use Gu, homemade bars and bananas. We now never stop for lunch because it slows us down, our muscles get cold and we sometimes get nauseous. No lunch even on long rides than are more than 80 miles. We snack constantly and nibble every 20 to 50 minutes by reaching into our pockets or at a stop light. A hydration backpack might work well for you and that way you would avoid big gulps and chugs. It takes practice to get a bottle out of a cage and drink -- never do it while drafting, just back off, drink and latch back on. Be sure you are well hydrated the days prior to your rides too.

I also eat a small breakfast like salmon (canned) and veggies. Do not drink your coffee on an empty stomach. The caffeine makes me crank. I am a slug without it. I like Gu's with caffeine or chocolate covered expresso beans. Be sure to have a good recovery drink like chocolate milk. That gives me a chance to shower before a nice meal otherwise I will tank. I use soy milk since I am allergic to dairy (not related to my celiac disease).

I am recently diabetic so I am now monitoring my carbs during my rides. I hope these tips help!

The only exercise I seem to be able to get away with, without getting nausea, is running. I love to run but I don't always have the time, especially right now because I'm over half way through this fall semester so all my instructors are piling on the work!!! Any time I do core work outs I get overwhelmingly nauseous. I couldn't find my motivation this morning and I am trying to flush my body this week because I have been feeling so run down so I wanted to exercise to get my blood moving and help energize me, plus it helps relieve all my stress from school and work and doing the Mommy thing. I got about 15mins in and got so sick to my stomach... had to go outside to cool off and then had to run to the bathroom. I really want to tone my core muscles, I have a lot of back pain that I feel it will help with plus it's my main problem area. I'm I getting sick because I need to work out more? Maybe just take baby steps into it? Has anyone had this issue and was able to work past it?

I had trouble with some nausea this summer.  I believe mine has to do with allergies.  What are you riding by when having trouble?  For me it is corn and grains.

When I was younger, I was very physically inactive which led to a big amount of weight gain. 

Naturally, my muscles were weakened and I could barely run a mile without losing my breath. Every step plus was a huge pain for me and I was running out of breath more frequently than I care to admit. Sometimes I'd feel very nauseous, my ears would ring and I used to see blurry outlines.

However, it turned out that I had vitamin deficiency, and with some fruit, vitamin supplements, as well as L-Carnitin. Now, I am doing much better and I have a lot more energy in me.

    • New Celiac Doctor - Atlanta/Duluth, GA
      I can't help you with finding a new GI, but I can empathize with driving the 400!   I have family in the Northern Atlanta area and visit often.   How horrible that your account was so mis-managed! 
    • New Celiac Doctor - Atlanta/Duluth, GA
      Hello! I have Celiac Disease (confirmed by blood tests and endoscopy done in 2013) and was going to a doctor at Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates until the end of last year (2015) when they started charging me for things that happened in 2013 - two years late. I had since changed insurance and was forced to pay out of pocket for the charges or be sent to collections. All in all, I loved my doctor there, but was very unhappy with the way the billing was managed.  So, I found a new doctor and have seen her once. I like her very much so far, but have recently moved and my home is so far from her office it often takes me 1-2 hours to get there with Atlanta traffic. (Her office is at Emory St. Joseph's hospital.) I should say one of the reasons we moved to Duluth was to get away from Atlanta traffic. I don't want to change practices, but I'm considering it. Does anyone out there live in North Atlanta? Alpharetta, Lawrenceville, Duluth, Suwanee? And have a doctor in the area they would recommend that is NOT associated with Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates? I would rather drive 5 hours to see a doctor than go back to that group, no matter how good the doctors are! Any recommendations are welcome!
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Welcome!  Unfortunately, you would have to go back on gluten to get tested (8 to 12 weeks for the blood test and 2 to 4 weeks for the endoscopy).  Here are the tests: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am sorry that your doctor is so mis-informed! There are over 300 symptoms attributed to celiac disease and some celiacs are considered "silent" with no symptoms at all!  I personally was anemic and had no tummy issues that I was aware of at the time of my diagnosis.   There are other forum members who have Sjogren's who might have some good advice (@Gemini).   I wish you well!  
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Hi! This is my first post here. I'm wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience. I'm in the diagnostic process for Sjogren's, which my rheumatologist is very sure that I have even though my dryness symptoms are very mild. (I am positive for SSA, the autoantibody associated with Sjogren's.)  The symptoms I initially went to my GP with are: fatigue, hair loss, irregular menstrual cycle (very unusual for me), headaches (migraines, almost daily), elevated temperature, weight loss My GP did not do the blood test for Celiac disease. She opted not to because when she asked me if I had loose stool, I said "No, actually, I've been constipated every day for the last 10 years." She said, "Ok, no Celiac then."  ???????? During the diagnostic process, I also lost a pregnancy.  When I eliminated gluten because of recommendations from the Sjogren's Foundation website, almost all of my symptoms disappeared. I still have the hair loss, but no headaches, fatigue is better, cycle is regular, and I'm back to my normal weight. Even my temperature is closer to my norm. I feel like an entirely new person. I still sometimes have mild dryness symptoms but nothing that would have prompted me to go to the doctor without the other symptoms. Should I make an appointment with my rheumatologist and try to get tested for Celiac disease? Has anyone had a similar experience? And how hard do you think it will be to get tested? (Like most doctors I've worked with, my rheumatologist likes to be the one who makes the suggestions.) Thanks for any input! Kristen

      Hello, how long did it take to get back up? I quit the pepcid and started iron but the ferritin dropped from 74 in December, to 49 in March and 33 a couple of weeks ago.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
