Prior to my endo symptoms worsening last year, finally resulting in a lap and diagnosis, I was in the gym at least 4 times a week hitting heavy weights. I was the strongest and fittest I’d ever been and felt great as a result. Fast forward to now and even a vigorous walk with the dog is exacerbating my pain. As a result I’ve piled on a few unwanted pounds and generally I just feel fluffy and not at all confident with it. I try to eat right (vegan with as little ‘crap’ as possible) but am finding a lack of physical activity is taking its toll on my body. It was suggested I try yoga which I’m due to start soon.
I suppose I’m just wondering if exercise exacerbates anyone else’s pain? And how you get around this, what you’ve tried? I used to be so confident in myself and now find myself hiding away. It’s funny as well because before my lap when I wasn’t in the gym due to pain, I was actually losing weight unintentionally. Now I can’t stop putting it on!
