I was doing great.
Well my brain said I was doing great! LOL!
I was pushing my exercise and it was fun! Until I was done. Within minutes my muscle hurt- my nerves screamed, and I could barely walk. But that was o.k. I was so happy to be doing it. By the time I got to bed............I died from exhaustion and lost valuable time because I was too tired to get up. But I liked this exercise routine. I liked doing it. Why was my body reacting to something so negatively that my brain was loving???!!!
Tylenol didn't help. The Dr upped my Gabapentin which makes you sleepy AND hungry??!! NO!!! Soaking my legs in a nice warm bath only helps sore muscles not nerves.
And then I read this online~
You might have heard the mottos "stretch till it hurts" or "feel the burn," but those approaches are not appropriate for people with MS. If you overdo it, you can end up straining an already compromised muscular system, increasing pain, and causing your body and mind to become overstressed, overworked, and overtired.
•The "two-hour rule" is a good guideline for people with MS when exercising. The rule states, "If you don't feel as good two hours after exercising as you did before you started, then you probably did too much."
O.K. I get it.
But it still stinks!
Makes me wonder why I wanted a spark tracker. :o(
