    Crashing & Exhaustion?

    Hi. I had a few spills on Sunday - nothing that seems to have been bone-breaking, but I've got a nice case of trail rash and some pretty sore shoulders. Lots of bruises. Yesterday I stayed home from work to nurse my wounds - I was absolutely exhausted and took 2 long naps. Today I feel even worse - dizzy, clumsy, and exhausted. Is it posisble this exhaustion is connected to my injuries?

    Did you hit your head on any of the falls? Might not be a bad idea to go get checked out, especially if the symptoms stay the same or get worse.

    Were you on a long ride/hot ride/sweaty ride? I know if I haven't pre-hydrated and fueled up sufficiently before a good ride that I can feel really messed up afterwards, similar to what you're describing. Everyone's different though.

    Turns out I have an inner ear infection - totally unrelated to my crash. Thanks for your thoughtful comments though.

    Wow... glad to hear it had nothing to do with the crash. What an odd coincidence!
