newseNCA writes that if you are a workaholic, over-achiever or a perfectionist, you might be at risk of suffering from a modern-day phenomenon known as "leisure sickness".  

This medical condition strikes as soon as you go on a long-awaited holiday and signs include flu-like symptoms and migraines.  Almost two million South Africans are said to be prone to this illness.  Pharma Dynamics spokesperson Nicole Jennings points out that one incident of sickness during leave doesn't mean a diagnosis, but if a person finds themselves consistently falling ill while resting, they could be at risk.
