Ask Fuzzy: Get fit but note side effects

Description

A mechanism proposed to explain increased "illness" symptoms is linked to the immune system response to tissue damage related to excessive exercise and lack of recovery. When tissue is damaged, it releases immune modulating molecules, called cytokines. In some individuals, these cytokines stimulate a branch of the immune system associated with airway allergies and inflammation. This mechanism explains how individuals can exhibit the symptoms of a "cold" without necessarily being infected.
