Pain After Vigerous Activity

Pain After Vigerous Activity

One day I worked the snack bar at the skating rink. I was in bed two days after in excruciating pain. It seems to happen when I exert myself. Sometimes even house cleaning will do it. My muscles are so weak. Can anyone relate to this? Tyia

Yes, Girl! Sometimes just making my bed from doing the laundry, etc. is exhausting. My back hurts from making up the bed, so I need to lie down, and then the fatigue weighs in and the day is gone. The next day I say, “Okay, I’m going to clean the floors, etc.” Vacuuming, mopping, makes my hands and back hurt so bad, sometimes I’m left crying; I totally get you!

I think most of us do🙂 I hope you have recovered from all of the exertion. I don’t know if you are new to this or not; I had to learn the hard way, so just offering…

Take one day at a time.
If you can stop before the twinges, pain, and fatigue start do so. It’s not a hill worth fighting for;you just do more damage.
Tomorrow is another day.
Positive support; make sure you have some🤗
Stretching, nutrition, water, and walking are your friends too!

Feel better soon.
