Fitness geeks – any experience w/rhabdo? - June 13, 2014, 09:10 AM

Thought I’d post here anyway to see if anyone’s had any experience with rhabdomyolosis … the only way this is motorcycle-related is that I haven’t been able to ride.

I landed myself in the hospital last week w/a diagnosis of rhabdo – best guess is a combo of major yard work followed by gym time and not enough hydration. (Nutshell for the uninitiated: rhabdo = muscle overuse > muscle breakdown > kidney failure > bad.) CK levels were over 9000 (normal is <150) so I earned a nice little vacation at Reston. Everyone was surprised - I work out several times a week and didn't feel THAT bad.

Levels are almost back to normal now and I’m working closely with my doctor – just wondered if anyone has ever experienced this. Any ongoing issues I should watch for, words of wisdom, etc? Would *really* like to avoid this again in the future.

I've got no experience with it but I think you can get some good advice here: IronGarm • View forum - Trooper's Training Forum - In memory of Col. James "Jim" R Tirey, USA

Good luck in your recovery.

Unless you're an extreme athlete it should be a non issue for a healthy individual. You may have an underlying issue or a genetic disposition.

No extreme athlete here....Will definitely be more careful about consistent hydration in the future, though, and hopefully prevent this from happening again.

Perhaps look into pedialyte or similar drinks during heavy exertion.

Been there, done that, but it sounds like yours was worse than mine. It's got varying degrees, but unless you were peeing red for a long time, I'm guessing that the symptoms will subside and you'll be fine (note, I am not a doctor). For me, it was repetitive high intensity activity, that despite me being able to do it, I wasn't quite fit enough for it. It was pull-ups, and it felt like the real damage was to my forearms. Just be careful if you are overusing one particular muscle group for a prolonged period of time. I've had plenty of short intense workouts on one muscle group and had no issues. I think it tends to happen with extended overuse.
