Reply To: Exercise during GBS recovery
Pace yourself. Do what you can on the good days, do lighter yoga/calisthenics on wobbly ones.
You say you aren’t much of a swimmer, but how would water aerobics work for you? I tried it and it was good, but the chlorination bothered the asthma that I developed.
I walk as much as I can, do yardwork (trying to not bend down much), keep moving. I carefully test my limits when I know I can rest if I need to the next day. It keeps getting better. I used to have a very active job, so my challenge is to find a new job that won’t bore me or hurt me or wear me out so that I can’t exercise.
Drink lots of water.
