I finally have transportation worked out so that I was able to start PT again. Yesterday was my first day for exercises, mostly just stretching exercises for the legs and boy, today they ache every time I move them. Should I just work with this as something to be expected, or does the aching mean the therapist expected too much of me. I have had alot of stress to deal with for the last six months, which took a toll on me by taking away my motivation, so I am kinda like a person who spend six months in bed and is now trying to re-build muscle strength. THUS, ACHING AND CRAMPED MUSCLES.
I’m here now and I think this is a good idea, BUT, very very few of our members will see it in “general questions”. I know I only read through “general questions” when I think to check if maybe a new member didn’t know where to post about their syndrome. I don’t know how to do it, but try to move it to the MAIN FORUM where everyone GBS/CIDP and caregivers go. Or post a notice in those forums so our members will come here because, when we pay attention to our fatigue limit, exercise is important.
Today, I will be laying on my bed and doing exercises that will stretch my feet. The forward movement in my feet is almost non-existant. I think since our muscles are not damaged, that we have to do things to make them move ourselves, PATTERN THEM.
