Started at the gym yesterday for the first time in 3 years. The point of going yesterday (Other than the fact that I get this week free) was to get use to lifting again, get my form down etc. Low volume, taking it slow (Or so I thought).
Today I woke up with DOMS mostly in my glutes and quads. Here's what I did my first day back.
This isn't what my normal day looks like, it's just a 'can my body move in this way again' day.
For breakfast, Opticen and milk, a couple hours later 2 servings of Nitrean and 1 of Results. During the 1 hour session, I took it slow. I stretched at the end, took my Opticen as a PWO shake. I had no work the rest of the day so I was relaxing. Had my veggies and meat when I got home and veggies and fish for dinner.
Today, I got up and felt the DOMS. I decided to go to they gym and work on upper body (Assisted chins and dips) and some shrugs and rows. All just to get form down etc. Spent more time on the mat stretching. Went to work and about 2 hours in I had what I can only describe as 'feeling like crap'. It started in my stomach, like I was bloated, then breathing got difficult which triggered a panic attack. Vision blurred a bit. My neck was pretty tense.
I had 2 bottles of protein drinks that I bought from the gym as 'just in case' food. I thought maybe I didn't supply myself with enough nutrition. But that feeling never left until I took my benzos and a painkiller (And waited a good 1.5 hours).
Did I do something wrong? I've been to the doctors in the last 2 months. Blood tests show all is healthy. Heart, liver kidney, brain...all good.
I know we're not doctors on this forum, but maybe a little experience from those who might have had something similar happen could share. Or if you have an idea of what may have happened, I'm open.
I have 2 days off (Got pay the bills with work) before I'm at the gym again. Monday will be my first real day back: Squats, rows, bench.
