I think it is a combinations of many things....Posted by AndreaB on 11/01/99 at 00:00 (012249)
If my body wasn't made to withstand heavy exercise then explain to me why after 8 years of running my feet suddenly come down with this terrible injury/disease? I put tremendous stress on my feet for 8 years (marathon running) and just one day I woke up and they were in pain. The only thing I can really think that was going on was tremendous stress in my life (moved to a new city, new job, getting married, crappy weather I live in Seattle) I believe that stress is not allowing my body to heal itself. Therefore I can buy into that viruses could weaken our immune systems that can't fight off other things like inflammation etc.
