    Thank you, thank you, thank you, for all your sarcasm and silly comments! If I didnt get them I may not be here now!

    After the first few comments, I thought fuck it - they're no help and I just went back to bed and got back up again at 7. I read the new posts, got rick roll'd then I REFUSED to click on the Rhabdo link.

    "Pause for fluid intake"

    i then googled and wiki'd Rhabo - saw the shit and proceeded to go straight to A&E. I thought that it might just be a case of drink loads and I mean loads - go home and dont be so stupid again.

    After a blood test and a urine test the first doc said "theres something wrong with your blood"
    my CK level - Creatine Something. should have been about 100 and after working out about 1-2000. Mine was >48000 the machine didnt go any higher.

    I was admitted to hospital sunday afternoon and I came out last night, I was on about 3 or 4 litres of intravenous fluids all day, everyday. I was also drinking at least 8 litres of water a day aswell. My Ck levels came down slowly from >48k to 38k to 27k to 17k to 7000 yesterday when I was released.

    No work, no gym for 2 weeks. Ive got an appointment with a specialist in two weeks to see if it was just the exercise that I did/overdid it or whether there is some other problem.

    "pause for more fluid intake"

    I know most were taking the piss, but thank you! - and as for not taking advice from people from the internet - thats bollocks!!! I'll come back to you lot anytime!!!

    It seems crossfit and leg extensions can be deadly. I hope you learned your lesson from this!

    I'm glad you saw the doctor in the end - it's better to be safe than sorry sometimes. Now take a drink! :)

    If you fools hadn't alerted him to the Rhabdomyolysis, I'd be sorting through his stuff right now.
