[QUOTE=GH-CIDP]From Parry and Steinberg:

“[i]Recent studies have shown that a careful exercize program can reduce fatigue in GBS and CIDP patients. … avoidance of exercize leads to deconditioning and an increase in fatigue.[/i]”

It is important to get exercize but not to overwork to the point of exhaustion. When I started outpatient therapy, I would do it twice a week for about an hour and a half, and mostly rest on the off days. Now, further into my recovery, I no longer do therapy, and can be active everyday, but still have limits. You need to find the right balance between exercize and rest.[/QUOTE]

Thanks GH-CIDP. I need to retry excersise. A few months ago, I did 30 minutes on a stationary bike and was in bed for 3 days following:confused: I guess I need to find my speed and balance. I’m glad to hear you are active on a daily basis:) You are an inspiration:)
