exercise: good or bad?

July 15, 2006 at 6:21 pm

Before I realized the reality of my CIDP, I had dx of fibromyalgia. Any PTs I had were always very careful to give me very mild exercize, so not to damage my muscles any more.

Then I got out the old dx of CIDP. I had to get PTs to teach me how to swallow without it going down wrong. They wanted me to take short walks, every day (for the FMS). So now my most essential exercize is ALWAYS remembering to swallow correctly. The alternitive is to be coughing for half a day.

If I sit a while, especially with this hot computer sitting on my lap, my legs are very week afterwards, feel like my thigh muscles will collapse. Guess I’d better quit.

Take care
