1. Sometimes dizzy IS good!
Did you get your echo results back?

2. On Friday, they left a VM for me to call back...
I called back.

Much to my relief, everything WAS normal.

Okay, the mystery is still there but at least the ticker is doing well. Or maybe it's a bad thing; my opinion changes with the mood, but that's why I'm I'm on mood stabilizers! :spray:

3. dizzy is never good
Edited on Sun Oct-08-06 05:00 PM by pitohui
not if it's the real thing and not just a figure of speech, dizzy is just nausea of the head and in some cases (mine anyway) one step away (if an entire one step away) from vomiting

there is no problem in life that has ever been solved by developing exercise bulimia

5. Dizziness after exercise very rarely is a sign of exercise bulimia.
It's more likely low blood sugar, improper hydration, or improper breath.

7. Exercise bulimia is...
http://exercise.about.com/cs/exercisehealth/a/exerciseb...

Compulsive exercisers will often schedule their lives around exercise just as those with eating disorders schedule their lives around eating (or not eating). Other indications of compulsive exercise are:

* Missing work, parties or other appointments in order to workout
* Working out with an injury or while sick
* Becoming seriously depressed if you can't get a workout in
* Working out for hours at a time each day
* Not taking any rest or recovery days

Compulsive exercising has to do with control, much the same way people with eating disorders use food as a way to take control of their lives. But, it can turn into an endless workout if you're not careful since most folks never feel satisfied with their bodies or their fitness levels, no matter how much they exercise.


That's the real definition anyway. I'm not sure what pithoui's definition is.

8. Oh, I wondered what that was called.
One of my sisters was anorexic as a teenager. She never received treatment/counseling and still starves herself, overexercises and is one hell of an overachiever. Used to get up during the night and jog up and down our staircase.

9. It's something that SOME people are in no position to suggest
nor diagnose. Develop, indeed.

Anyway...

Exercise bulimia is another way to "purge" the body of what's been eaten. Rather than forced vomiting, people stricken by exercise bulimia attempt to sweat it off, so to speak. They might exercise for 4, 5 or even 6 hours over several sessions a day. My understanding of it is that it's an ongoing, constant state. This isn't about someone goes to a Superbowl party and pigs out, then feels the need to do an extra 20 minutes on the treadmill. It's usually (again, as I understand it) an individual that will eat on a schedule and then "exercise it off" on a schedule.

While one might ask what the harm is, not only do these folks overtrain, but their joints take a terrible pounding and in time develop typical "overuse" symptoms.

10. Yup. The abovementioned sister
has osteoporosis and is subject to constant stress fractures. At 42, she still runs an hour a day and follows the run with a workout in her personal gym downstairs. She eats very little and consequently weighs in at about 115lbs. She's 5'10". She's skeletal.

4. Yeah, I'll end up dizzy for a few minutes after a good workout.
I recover quickly though.
