I thought I would ease myself back into exercise, I haven't done Aqua for a year. I took so many precautions.
Cut back on any big movements
Didn't raise my arms
Stopped for water
Did about a third of the class speed.
A third of the way through the class, I started to get cold, the chlorine was causing my eyes to burn and started my head throbbing, my jaw started to spams & my legs felt stiff. I made it out of the pool to the changing room, luckily my husband saw me & helped me back in the car.
I am now wrapped up in blankets and heat packs, spasoming away. I live near Ludlow in Shropshire, I can't find any warm water exercise classes. I need to lose weight ( one point into diabetes diagnosis, tested again in a couple of months) I have tried the steps, I go into spasming pain if I push to 10,000 a day, only making 5000 at the moment.
At a loss about building my exercise capacity. My fibro seems to have got worse especially if I get cold. My diet has improved thanks to slimming world but I'm in a bit of a catch 22, as far as exercise is concerned.
