    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    exercise followed by flu like symptoms

    I have Hepatitis C, type 1a and am stage 2 grade 2. Typically I feel pretty good, but when I exercise (lift weights, run a few miles and do some core exercises) I will get headaches and feel fatigued. It doesn't happen immediately and often times is 24 hours or longer afterwards. These "spells" can last a few days to a week or longer. Often times I will exercise for a couple of weeks before onset of a "spell". Should note that during the times when Im feeling good, I frequently feel as though Im not sleeping well and beginning of a "spell" if proceeded by a night where I feel as though I didn't sleep at all. Last blood work showed slight vitamin d deficiency, but otherwise everything is within normal ranges.
