Well I have not really put much on here of Latebut I thought I would let you know how I have got on with my new treatment with Xolair. This is a drug used to treat Asthmatics with the view of reducing the allergic reaction to things. The only problem is it is administered at the hospital by injection. well I passed the trial period where my lung function increased from 29% to 42% which is really great. the only problem now is I keep thinking I am super woman and try to do things much beyond my means.
I go to the health circuits classes each week and I am getting stronger ( I can now push 2 kilo wight instead of 1K! I try to go swimming once a week.
So with all this untapped energy I thought I would join the Gym so I could use the Facility when ever I wanted.
this week I had the opportunity to use the gym and thought I could do a Pilates class as well.
Well I walked in the treadmill for half and hour at a reasonable pace ( felt slightly odd when I got off but OK) had a sit down for half an hour then joined the Pilates class well I tried to keep up and tie myself into peculiar knots and shapes whilst continuing to breathe deeply and pull up my pelvic floor and engage my core muscles.
All I can say is I felt sick giddy and most peculiar so instead of finishing the class I just lay on the floor watching everyone else.
It took hours to wear off and tonight I feel the same again ( perhaps it is just a Flash BAck!!!!)
I think I might take it easy this week end!
hope you are all trying to keep fit Best wishes Irene
