Hi I am a new member but not new to the site and I’ve decided to post since there are many knowledgeable people here.
I made a stupid decision to include some powerlifting to my bodybuilding routine just when my body needed some rest. After 4 weeks of pushing hard and doing singles every week (deadlift, bench, squat) the cns fatigue symptoms started to show. I felt sick occasionally, some fatigue, joint pain but I totally ignored them because I had no idea about cns fatigue.
After nearly 4 other weeks, the symptoms just got worse (felt totally drained, eye burns, very exhausted, difficulty to concentrate, insomnia, typos) so I did my research and knew it was cns fatigue.
I have now accomplished my second week away from gym and I am recovering slowly but just when I felt I will be able to hit back the gym in few days, I had a bad fever.
Im wondering how I will be able to figure out that I have totally recovered? Is it as soon as I feel normal again? Has anyone experienced somehow the same? When to tell I can come back?
Thanx for taking the time to read this long paragraph
