Good days and bad days during recovery

    • March 16, 2018 at 1:32 am

      Hi everyone,
      I really need some insight if anyone has experienced days in recovery that feels like they are getting much worse than getting better.
      I was diagnosed in December last year. Was on Ivig for a week then sent home. Been going for PT sessions once or twice a week but for some reason this week feels like I have taken so many steps backward in my recovery. I’m normally able to lift myself from a chair using my arms but this week, it’s not possible on my own. Please help me understand if this is normal.

      It’s normal to become exhausted easily, so one must be careful to avoid overwork while still getting regular e ercise. There should not be persistant loss of strength.

      Do you have small weights which you could use to exercise your arms? I was using three pound weights early in my recovery for daily arm exercises.
