Stamina vs Fatigue

August 20, 2008 at 1:21 am

Hi allsmiles (btw – cute name!)

I think that we have all had those days when we have stayed in bed all day(or at least felt like it!). I have days where Saturday starts at 10:30am – a nap at 3 and sleeping at 9:00pm!

That might be a function of a relapse. Or it could be that your energy levels are low (or your iron levels). Try and get outside abit, take a short walk or do some stretches. Just listen to your body, I guess.

This thing is insidious, though. I got up at 8:30 this morning after working yesterday, felt pretty perky when I met my husband for coffee, went home and did some chores, and by 4 — let’s just say, perky was long gone. I am totally exhausted, and could happily go to bed until tomorrow.

Do talk to your neuro. I found that trying out some Pilates has helped alot in terms of energy and strength.

Take care
