I have a weird question: Has anyone -- chickenpox survivors only, of course -- had a shingles flare-up as a result of weightlifting?
I've come down with shingles numerous times over the last several months and cannot figure why. The doctor said shingles may be caused by a weakened immune system. I know there are studies showing that intense exercise can weaken the immune system; which, in turn, hampers the body's ability to defend itself from infection.
Do you guys think there is causation here? Has anyone heard of or dealt with this?
