Feeling Sick after working out - September 1st 2017, 01:23 AM

So today I was at the gym, and I started feeling really nauseous at some point. Like, I thought if I bent my abs I'd throw up. I hadn't eaten breakfast, just a big cup of milk, about 2.5-3 hours before working out. I was drinking plenty of water. Got about 6 hours of sleep (albeit not the best quality).
I'm not asking for a diagnosis, just a few potential ideas (given that google probably isn't the best place to go).

PM me if you ever wanna talk. Send a message my way.
And remember, you matter. You're awesome. You're beautiful. Stay strong, the world will get better.

May The Force be With You.

I'm wondering if not having breakfast might've contributed to feeling sick? I know that it's not a good idea to exercise straight after eating, but I know for me, I will feel ill if I don't have breakfast before doing anything.

Alternatively, you might have been working out too hard or had been overhydrated, as these things can also make you feel ill.

Hey friend! So back when I was a runner, I used to see this happen to people a LOT, and it was generally because of either a) consuming dairy, b) not eating enough, or c) not drinking enough water (especially in warm weather). It sounds like you were drinking enough water, but sometimes drinking too much water can have negative effects also, ironically.

Do you normally drink milk before working out? Dairy was the one thing that everyone in my athletic community always said not to consume before a tough workout or a competition because it was notorious for making people sick. Different people seem to have different levels of tolerance for that though. If you normally just drink milk before a workout and don't have any problems, then it's probably not that; but if you usually eat more/something else, then it's possible that the combo of dairy + not a whole lot of calories ended up making you feel ill.

Just some ideas. I hope your next workout goes better!

I know that for me, when I can feel water sloshing around in an empty stomach during working out, it makes me feel pretty nauseous.
I'm assuming you were lifting, in which case it's very important to eat something before doing that that type of strenuous work on your muscles. With cardio exercise, it's better to eat afterwards, because I've heard the body can burn fat easier on an empty stomach. (don't quote me on that though lol, could be wrong)

The things the posters above said also sound like very reasonable explanations. It might help to establish a complete meal and workout plan so you can have a schedule of exactly when and what you eat and when you workout. That might help to track these weird things that throw us off sometimes.

i don't know what i'm supposed to do
