Haynesworth's illness last week, which caused him to sit out practice with nausea and dizziness, is nothing to minimize - it was potentially dangerous and a good thing it was caught.
Rhabdomyolysis is the breakdown of muscle fibers that can end up resulting in damage to the kidney.
Haynesworth experienced the symptoms of rhabdomyolysis. Those symptoms included dizziness, nausea, vomiting and muscle swelling. He was treated by team doctors, with rhabdomyolysis believed to be the likely cause.

Haynesworth wasn't faking and is upset with the Redskins for not fully disclosing what has been ailing him.
