This is recurring problem that I get when I do crits or CX races. About two hours after the race is over I get cramping so bad that i am bent over puking. I throw up everything in my stomach, can't even hold down water. I also get the runs. It can last up to six hours.
I am wound pretty tight as a person, which I try to change by meditation. I cannot smoke pot or take other mind altering substances to change this.
I tried pepto Bismol before yesterdays race but it didn't help.
During the race, I went into VO2 on 3 maybe four occasions which tends to mean I will suffer a lot more after the race.
Has anyone had similar problems and how did ye deal with it?
It gets so bad that I may have to consider giving up racing if I can't find a solution.
