Mucus Problems And Exercise

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Okay yes gross stuff.


I'm a recovering celiac. Nearly three years now. Still suffering a touch.


Whenever I start exercising again for some reason I get that 'need to go' feeling but not completely, then I know, the dreaded mucus stage is coming. Just mucus.


I don't like it! 


I've been okay stomach wise and been coping a lot better. 


I am under stress at the moment but I deal with stress fairly well. 


I started doing exercise and voila it appears again.


Anyone else have this problem or could just help shed some light on this awkward situation?

What type of exercise do you do? If it is running, I would say try walking for a while instead, and above all, try to stay close to home or a bathroom until you work through this. You may also want to try digestive enzymes/supplements like Celiact, which helped me.

I agree with admin, when starting out to try and get more exercise in, I had issues, not good ones for sure. I also had the mucus issue and wound up tearing a couple leg muscles. Once back in the game I started to take things slow and found better results. Also if you smoke or recently quit mucus can be a real annoyance with that when working out, not trying to be preachy, but I know a few folks who had a similar issue when they quit.
