After my visit on Monday, with my doctor, I decided that maybe a second opinion would be a good idea. Too many open questions. It all was just not adding up. So after talking with my NEW doctor today it was decided that more blood work would be done. These will be primarily to check my electrolyte levels and kidney functions. Today I have had no temperature at all so that is good. Each day my energy level feels closer tot 100%. Today has been really good. It also was determined that I suffered from a bad case of heat exhaustion rather than a heat stroke. Still serious but much more treatable!! Bottom line is that I must take in more fluids at least two days prior to any runs where I will be exposed to the heat. Although I do take in a lot while running I have not been doing enough to prepare my body the few days leading up to this.
So with that I am now taking in tons of liquids both water and cytomax. This should make a big difference. Once again I feel that there is hope to getting me running again really soon. It is my therapy and I need it. The treadmill will be my new best friend.
Thank you all for your warm wishes and thoughtful comments you have left for both my husband and myself. I am touched!! You all ROCK!!
I will catch up on all of your blogs tomorrow.... I promise.
