Shattered after day out yesterday

Well i managed to get out yesterday .Me and my husband took the kids to a farm .

I really enjoyed getting out as i havent been going far ,as i cant drive with some of my symptoms .

I had a lovely time, but after about 2 hours of being on my feet ,had to keep sitting down.The bottom of my legs ached so much i thought they might give way .But didnt get any spasms in legs which is good :)

Ive woke today and one of my arms and shoulders is really hurting ,feels like ive strained it (feels like ive been lifting weights with one arm!)

The only thing i can think that i did was lean in a pen to tickle a pigs belly ,surely i cant of strained my arm etc this bad from doing that ?

My body feels exhausted today ,and very numb in places ,even my tongue,tingly ,pins and needles ,vision bad etc

I get these symptoms all the time just worse today thats all .

Do any of you seem' to pay for it' the day afer going out ?

 

Hi Sam, Im going thru similar this very minute. You may find alot people like with ms have the same experience.

I the key to it not happening is not to over do thing, good luck with that

Hi Sam,

It sounds just like how I feel when I've overdone it. But ms or not life is for living.....so despite the fact that it may make us feel like crap the next day - I think throwing caution to the wind has to be done......a day at the farm with hubby and kids or resting up at home.....Hhhmmm, I know what I'd have chosen thumbsup

Try sitting down a little more frequently next time you have a day out - see if that helps. It's trial and error really - finding the right balance is a tricky task but do-able and worth it.

Take it easy today Sam, leave all the unnecessary chores bla bla bla and have a bit of time out. Rest rest rest

((hugs))

thanks for putting it better than I did, i too am the middle of payback,
And your right Debbie it was worth every minute.

Frank.

Thanks both of you :)

And yes i feel like rubbish but it was so worth it happy2.

Have either of you had the muscle strain though?

SAm xx

I get that almost everyday sam…

Ok thanks Frank .I wasn’t sure if it was to do with my symptoms or not . It happened a few weeks ago ( the last time I drive further than 15 mins ) I was driving for 3 hours ,next day my arm hurt so bad , like a really bad muscle strain .
Why do our muscles react like this when they are stretched ? ( but not overly used like we used to be able to )
I mean bending over and stretching slightly to stroke a pig has never hurt like this before .
That will teach me a lesson for trying to give a pig belly rubs .ive got 2 of my own so I know how much they like it :slight_smile:

I get it when I do the physio exercises for my core muscles and back, I e ercise one day and it takes three to get over it !

Frank.

It's probably more to do with yesterday in general as opposed to bending over & stretching slightly to give that lovely little piggie a belly rub.....Have you really got two piggies of your own? happy2

Yes, my muscles give me lots of jip....ggrrrhhh.....just to add to everything else... 

Hence why I think it's important that we still do things that we enjoy - we'd be like hermits otherwise....

I used to have regular sessions with a chiro and by the time I’d got over it my next session was due…lol…but ultimately it was worth it.

Have you tried doing gentle stretches everyday Frank?

Debbie xx

Adding myself to this list of overdoing it! Had such a great week last week then the jerks restarted yesterday and today I'm properly unwell. Violent jerks, pingy zings through my head, burning pain in back, aching etc. 

We have to learn to pace ourselves I guess.

Wishing you all better quickly xx

Hi,

I've been getting the muscle weakness a lot down my lefthand side recently.  B12 100mcg seems to help quite a bit. You can take up to 1000mcg daily but i get tinnitus from it.  I t gives you extra energy and seems to relieve the symptoms a bit.  I'm getting slight tremors aswell, which isn't nice.  I'm going to try stretching which has helped in the past.

I'ld  definitely be scratching the pigs bellies though!  :)))

Adrian ;)

not yet debbie, your right though I should at at least try, and thanks the lovevely Jen. (((hugs))) to you both.
Gentle stretches here I come, Its quite amazing how you can read between the lines that arent even there !

Yes I do think it was just the day out in general that did it .
Yep I have got 2 pigs Debbie ( max and Lila ) had them for 4 years , they are lovely . Along with my 5 dogs , 2 turtles , 1 cat and not to forget 2 children there are a lot of mouths to feed in my house lol

Good luck Sam Wow thats awsome !

That’s fantastic Sam! I’m very much an animal lover and over the years have had quite a few rescue chinnies’ now I just have the one though…plus a very large rabbit.

I’d love to have dogs too…

Hi Sam - yep sounds right. I did a little light gardening yesterday - pruning and pulling weeds in a 2 foot square patch-  exhausted all afternoon.

I just go for it now otherwise I will not have a life.
