The day before yesterday I did Sparkpeople exercise DVD for thirty min. It wore me out. It is broken down into 10 min. segments. I did my legs, arms, and core workouts. By the time I was done I could not get off of the floor. I had to crawl to my husband, he was in the shower and I waited until he got out and helped me up.
Yesterday my workout was swimming. I swam quite a ways and became totally exhausted while I was a ways out from shore. Lucky for me I was holding onto swim noodles and could stop and rest. When I got back to shore my muscles were so weak I kept falling and could barely walk.
I grabbed a couple of towels and headed to a table under a shade tree prepared to take a nap. My wonderful husband saw that I was getting ready to pass out took me home. He had to lift me into the boat as I couldn't move my legs. When I got into the boat I couldn't stand so he had to lift me into the seat. When we got to the car I immediately fell asleep and slept all the way home. At home I slept until 430 pm was up until 7pm when I went back to bed and slept another 12 hours.
Now as to what is causing that. Besides having multiple sclerosis I started taking an antibiotic called Cipro. Being quite curious I searched many sites and found it can make people with ms worse. It caused increasing weakness and really bad fatigue. One site said it can trigger MS. It also causes tendon rupture and has a black box warning. I read you can't exercise when you are taking it due to the risk of rupture. So if you have MS be careful. It is also in the same family as Levaquin which causes the same thing to happen.
I received a free pedometer yesterday in the mail. I haven't tried it out yet as I have the body bug which I love and can't say enough good things about !!!
