    Are workouts more painful during cycles?

    I noticed that I feel incredible pain during workouts after I started my first cycle. In other words, when I work my muscles to fatigue, the pain is crazy, something I did not feel before. My blood is thick and my red blood cells count is higher, this could be the reason. Anyone else experience this?

    Hmmm well considering Your post is about pain and aspirin is a pain relieve.... Let me just take a wild stab in the dark but I'm guessing it's to help relieve pain after a strenuous workout?

    Help me out TR if I'm way of base...

    Aspirin will thin the blood some but if your RBC and hematocrit are high you'd be better off donating blood on a regular basis. Do you have bw showing you have high numbers?

    I was more focused on his use of the word "thick" when describing his blood. Aspirin therapy is supposed to reduce clotting and the risk of stroke. Risks that are associated with "thick" blood

    My Hematocrit is currently 56% and I have an appointment on Monday to do therapeutic blood withdraw. I dont qualify for blood donation because RBC are too high. Doctor has ordered that hemotocrit be brought down to 45% in several sessions.

    Great. Glad to know you're under a doctor's care. You should definitely get to feeling better when you get your numbers down. Keep us informed man and best of luck.
