    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Crazy gassed, aspirin the culprit?

    I had a question someone might know the answer to?

    Morning: took 5g of glutamine, went on with the day.
    Dinner: I had some knee swelling (other, arthritic etc) so i took a couple of ibuprofen and 5 asprin, after dinner went to practice.

    Hour of TKD (stfu;p), just warm but muscles felt lethargic.
    An hour into my BJJ/MMA training and my muscles are like lead, I mean just heavy and my gas is gone. Normally I'll be a bit whooped but nothing crazy as my cardio is pretty decent. (Weekly 3 hours TKD, 5 hours BJJ, 3 hours Total Gym, 1 hour continuous sparring on Fridays only).

    Anyway, nothing too crazy in practice, just shrimp some, some sprawsl, sprawls with a partner shooting, working from in guard to pass guard, working from side control back to guard from the bottom etc. But nothing crazy.

    Anyway, driving home the arms were so heavy that I had a helluva time holding up my cell phone even. Crazy gassed. So I got home, took a shower, put staph on the scratches and took my super glutamine and then unwound.

    Next day, muscles STILL dead, though not as bad. Not the hurt like if you overwork usually (maybe glutamine resolves that?), just dead. So I've done some light stretching and I'm taking the day off (aka, no 40 minute Total Gym routine like usual).

    So anyway, any ideas? I'm wondering if the aspirin did it, I know it thins the blood so it would make my blood carry... less oxygen right? Maybe the combination?

    The little bit I know, 5 tabs is a LOT of aspirin. Maybe you need to tone down the pain killers some....

    I hear you, I never usually do that much, just had tons of 'water on the knee' going on and wanted to really deal with the swelling. The doctors would prescribe 1200 mg of ibuprofen 3 times per day when the knee would flare up, but I almost never go there. I hate the stuff and it never seems to affect the swelling itself.

    Other than aspiration with a huge needle, it seems only time makes it go down when they flare up.

    I think yeah though, too much aspirin. I was used to the ibuprofen dose and figured it would be the same. I'll avoid that for sure.

    Call your doctor, tell him what you did and when, and tell him your current symptoms.

    Goddamit, it's fucking aspirin poisoning. Plus, DSL, the goddam labels warn not to mix aspirin with ibuprofen. :eusa_doh:

    Ok, note to self, don't **** around with aspirin.

    I'm at 220, took 5 (325 mg) aspirins. So I'm thinking the combination, not to self: stay the hell away from combining.

    I didn't show the symptoms (nausea or vomiting) just a total lack of energy in the muscles after a shorter than normal period. (an hour vs, 2-3 hours usually).

    I'll definitely call the doc in the morning (they all left hours ago) and see what measures he wants to take.

    So that's 12 hours a week that you train (not counting cardio)? How long have you been doing this?

    Are you still feeling lethargic and with your muscles going limb?

    You know what I do? DO NOT LISTEN TO ME WITHOUT DOING RESEARCH OF YOUR OWN FIRST, I AM QUITE POSSIBLY WRONG

    IBUProfen and Tylenol, both painkillers, can be taken together with very little risk. For the most part, they don't interfere with one another at all. Again, this is all to the best of my knowledge, but it could be something to look into and consider.

    Handover: A few months at this pace, before that it was 3-4 hours of TKD per week. I've been training constantly for the last 10 years after a break for college/career starting/marriage etc. I'm in the process of rebuilding myself.

    TEM: No, not at all. Just like I had a helluva workout the day before. I wasn't lethargic, just felt like I had no juice in the guns so to speak. (edit: not mentally out, just tired) It was like I'd worked to failure on my entire friggin upper body at once and then went to drive home. It might have been a combination of the combo (stupid me, and yes, never doing that again), and doing more strenuous workout. The sprawling at first reminded me of up/downs in football, holy crap those take juice, so some of it could be attributed to that.

    All in all though, 22 years of martial arts training and that was the most I've been just beat down tired. Even with some of those crazy seminar days where you do 5-6 hours of straight training.

    I do drink 4-5 liters of water per day, that seems to help flush out most of the 'wtf were you thinking's out of me in a hurry.
