Fatigued Athlete Myopathic Syndrome
DiffDx Over-training. In contrast to FAMS, over-training is an acute consequence of doing too much too fast for too long at one time which, with rest and a gradual buildup of exercise, allows the athlete to return to the previous level of training a speed. FAMS athletes are worn out and can’t return to previous training loads; extensive rest periods do not alleviate the symptoms, as rest does with over-training.
