4 Negative Reactions After Exercise
These reactions can include cramps, headache, rash, nausea. For some cases this is a momentary reaction but can also be serious. To that end, know the difference.
Normal: A little headache
Not normal: Headaches and muscle pain during exercise
Headache, as reported by Handbag, can occur because the body lacks oxygen. So make sure you breathe properly during exercise. Hold your breath while you’re lifting weights, then exhale slowly while releasing. But, if accompanied by headache and muscle pain throughout the body after exercise, you could be having problems. Immediately consult a doctor.
Normal: Feeling a little sick
Not normal: Nausea persists after exercise
Nausea can occur during and after exercise. This condition is usually caused because your body is dehydrated. Or it could be you ate too much before exercise. Therefore, before exercise eat sufficiently and always have a bottle of water next to you during practice. If nausea persists, consult a doctor immediately.
Normal: Stomach cramps
Not normal: Cramps that goes on for long
Muscle cramps do often occur after exercise. That’s because the muscles works quite hard. To prevent this, get enough warm up, and during cramp, reduce the pain by drinking water. But if cramps occur quite long you could be suffering anemia.
Normal: Skin redness
Not so normal: Swelling
The heat and sweat, you will for sure experience these two things while exercising, and it is also the main trigger of skin rashes. The trigger could be due to the clothing material worn during workout that can not absorb sweat well. Thus, causing irritation, skin redness and itching. For that wear comfortable clothing when exercising. However, if accompanied by swelling and difficulty in breathing, the body may be experiencing a condition known as exercise-induced anaphylaxis. Immediately consult a doctor if you experience it.
