Fever-ish feeling after workouts

Hi All

I started workouts about 2 months back. I have lost about 11 lbs since then. I do not have any past injury or anything and never had any issues with gym. I have been doing almost one and a half hour session for about 4 times a week. Usually I do 40-45 mins of cadio, 15-20 mins of stretching and 15-20 mins of strengthening.

Recently, I am feeling fever kind of feeling after 2-3 hours of workout session. The body gets warm with a mild headache. This remains for a few hours and gets fine by the morning, except the headache.

Does any one have similar experience? Can this be due to lack of salt or water in body, any ideas?

I suppose it was dehydration mostly. Day before yesterday I took a big dose of oral re-hydration salts and now I am feeling fine. But amazingly my weight rose by 3 lbs the next day.

Is there any way to monitor my salt intake. I drink a plenty of water, 2-3 liters a day. But I really don't know how to measure salt intake. If I keep on supplement my diet with oral re-hydration salts now and then, I am afraid I may retain huge amount water in tissues.

You should try and weigh in once a week, your body goes up and down in a day so you don't actually get the full picture. I tossed my scales so I could not weigh daily and go to a slimming club purely ...

I have to agree with gardengranny, the Doc should be the one telling you if you are ok to continue or stop taking a medication. You could end up doing more harm than good.
