I'm wondering if anyone else is familiar with a problem that I had recently during the night after a relatively strenuous 70 mile ride. Sorry if this isn't the best forum to ask, I didn't see another one that seemed more health related.
I tend to sleep hot (especially my legs) after a ride of 40 miles or more. This time I woke up at 2 am a bit sweaty, and had kicked off the covers. I awoke because I had begun shivering, although it was not a cold night (late July in NC never is). Soon after that I started shaking more strongly, like all of my abdominal muscles were spasming simultaneously. I had to cover up and pull together tightly to get it under control, even though I felt very hot doing this. After several minutes I was back to normal.
I have been fine since then. I rode another 40 miles the next day without any issues.
I've been on several long rides in the past, including some significantly longer ones. This is the first time I've had a body temperature problem the night after. Is this a go to the doctor kind of problem?
