I'm male 26. I'm a boxer training 4 times a week and i've done so for many years. I'm in very good physical condition but around 8-10 months ago I started noticing I was getting tired and lacking energy during training.  This has got dramatically worse to the point that 2 minutes into my first round of pad work my muscles instantly fatigue and I have to stop. 20 seconds of rest and im back to normal, but it happens again and again. Its become so bad that I have to go down on one knee to recover and sometimes I feel dizzy. I can normally do 12 three minute rounds on pads with ease. I feel completely fine other than this. I can jog 5km no problem, I only seem to have the problem with explosive exercises. I've been to my GP but I dont think she knows whats wrong with me. I had blood tests which showed I had a virus but at that time I had flu for two week so I think that was more to to with that. Can anyone tell me whats wrong?

    If I were you I would get a consultation with a cardiologist.  It sounds as though your heart is not accelerating enough to meet the "explosive"demands.   I don't know where you live, but if you are within reach of Loughborough I would go to the Sports Medicine department at the University and see if they can diagnose the problem.  There are some other sports medicine departments in universities but Loughborough is one of the very best.

      I live in south wales, but I will travel anywhere to get it sorted. Do you have a name or a contact at the university that i could get hold of?

    Hi Daniel,

    I agree with Neville about going to a sports medicine doc. My only other thought is if your heart is fine and if the aftermath of the virus is not causing your symptoms, consider Mononucleosis or Chronic Epstein Barre Virus Syndrome. Each requires different types of blood tests. Do you ever feel extremely tired and have to push yourself to keep going at the pace you are used to? Do you ever feel like you are made of lead or that the earth sinks a bit under your feet?

    Of course I am not a doctor and so many symptoms can mimic others. Just speaking from my gut for I suffer Epstein Barre.

    Hope you get to the bottom of this and feel well again soon!

    Sincerely,

    Dawnk

      I have to push myself all the time now to do things that were really easy for me normally. Ive also noticed that my toes start tingling like they are going numb when I'm jogging?? 

      Thanks

      Definitely go to your doctor and have a complete work up done. You do very well listening to your body, so write down every symptom and take the list with you to the doctor.

      Wishing you well,

      Dawn
