After a long race 2 weeks ago I experienced quite a bad case of blood in the urine or gross/frank hematuria (as I since discovered is the medical term).
Basically I think I passed lots of dead red blood cells and have not had any visible blood in my urine since however, even 2 weeks after the race I am constantly tired, need much more sleep than usual and any physical activity is much more difficult that usual. This would make sense if my body needs to replenish those red blood cell stocks. I've added extra greens and iron tablets too my diet and I already take plenty of other vitamins and eat well.
I'm wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem? How long does the body take to recover from this? Is there anything I can do to help the recovery?
