Hello!

Your nausea and early fatigue may have been in part deconditioning. If the weather was hot and you were perspiring heavily then heat exhaustion may have played a role. I would recommend that you gradually work to rebuild your conditioning. Avoid running too continuously without taking a break when it is very hot. Drinking Gatorade or some drink with some electrolyes in it as well is better than water by itself if you are perspiring heavily. The hotter it is; then you will need to rest and cool off more frequently.

I hope these tips help. Further questions are welcome if you have any. If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to press the "ACCEPT" button. Thank You and Best Regards,

Hi thanks for the advice also would like taking motionsickness tablets help at all before running around? as i do get sea sickness from being at sea over a period of time would taking tablets help my stomach from becoming so bad ?
Health Professional: Anthony Bray, MD, Doctor replied 8 years ago

Hello!

It's possible that tablets for motion sickness would help to reduce the likelihood of you becoming nauseated. Dramamine, meclizine and benedryl are in the antihistamine family but these all help with preventing nausea (whether caused by motion sickness or other reason). Transderm scopolamine is a prescription patch for motion sickness which would be another option.

I hope this helps. Further questions are welcome if you have any.

Best Regards,

Anthony Bray MD

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
