In an effort to improve my fatigue I was reading on a website about adrenal insufficiency. ( I am currently at 7) It was mentioned that walking a short distance sometimes may help. It is a trial and error thing. One of the things I have struggled with since diagnosis is muscle weakness and I just can't walk very far. I am 62 and have no health issues save PMR. So I thought I'd take a brief walk on a nice autumn day. I walked at a very reasonable pace for 12 minutes and felt energized when I returned. I told my husband, maybe this will be the thing that works!
Well, when I woke up the next day I felt like I'd been beaten by a bat! Stiff and sore everywhere. Of course, all the mental sorting out begins...is it a flare, what do I do with my dosing, how can I feel better? After day two I took one ibuprofen which helped and went for a blood test. My numbers look ok to me. sed rate 24 and cpr .61 Will see what the Dr says but today I am feeling better and I think its all been what PMRpro talks about delayed onset muscle syndrome. Always something new isn't there friends? I share this in the hopes that it is helpful to someone else. Enjoy your day today.
