I figured I would post in this section as I would likely encounter a more serious group that would know what they are doing.
Here is the story- I have worked out on and off over the years- the last few years I have worked out about 20-30 minutes 3-4 days a week. I have read starting strength by Mark Rippetoe and am now working out for 1.5-2 hours 3 days a week. I have had headaches off and on since I started working out again in mid november. Ever since mid February about when I started this rippetoe workout I have had frequent headaches and the sensation that I am wearing a hat when I am not. I have also drastically increased my eating. I started out working out pretty intensely in mid november but nothing like February 1st. I am very tired all the time and muscles are always sore- I did not do squats this wednesday and my legs are still sore from monday today. I have been to my doctor and he has done bloodwork generally and specifically for inflammation and I am having a cat scan done on tuesday am. I have gained 13 lbs of weight since mid january and feel almost as large as I was at my strongest in college. I weigh 135 lbs, 5'5 31 years old.
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
As far as a contest prep I am trying to get in the best shape of my life by september when baby number 2 is born.
