Avatar m tn They will tell her the best diet, the best way to stay as healthy as possible including exercise, medications that can prevent life threatening complications of advanced cirrhosis, so many things that I could never say. Advanced liver disease is a very complicated illness. But we can learn about it and how we can best live with it. That is what hepatologists do. They can also answer all your questions so you understand what is happening to a person’s body and mind as they live with the disease.
Avatar n tn com suggested a lot of people exercise way to hard, and when they think they get aerobic benefits, they are actually in CO2 debt and causing themselves severe anti-oxidant problems due to the overly high level of exercise. Half the people in the study considered themselves very fit, but only two of 30 were actually getting aerobic benefits at 80% of max heart rate, the rest were in varying degrees of CO2 debt and hurting themselves at the pace they were at.
572651 tn?1531002957 Exercise helps me. My fatigue which is new is completely running out of gas. I go riding, I come home I fall asleep right away and then get up later. I am usually tired the next day after physical or mental exertion.

Avatar m tn is anyone aware of an scientific studies on the impact of cardiovascular exercise on the outcome of treatment? I've got a hunch that there have been no such studies, and that the Pegasys statement isn't backed by very much. But who knows? I'd be interested to know if this has ever been looked at. To clarify, I know that exercise can make treatment more tolerable, but my question is whether it actually affects cure rates. Thanks in advance.
Avatar n tn All of sudden in April 2009 I started getting about 24 hours of flu-like symptoms post anaerobic exercise. Included in this is any kind of aerobic exercise with a significant resistance portion such as a "Hill interval" setting on an elliptical machine. I have taken a huge 5 month break of almost any intense physical activity and the first day back at the gym produces the same symptoms as when I was working out 4-5x a week.
Avatar f tn I can't begin to talk about the benefits of regular exercise and weight lifting! Exercise also helps with constipation, a common complaint among MSers. I'm not going to blame MS for my weight problem. I blame my weight problem firmly and squarely where it belongs - on my intake. I eat too many calories for the amount of calories I burn. Any responsible person who really intends to lose weight needs to look at their intake and think about their activity level, and start there.
1410020 tn?1322302865 I usually last 2 weeks before I get sick but this time I only lasted a week. I have been doing bike riding and was feeling great. I am on lots of vitamins and Olive leaf extract to help build my immune system. Am I just not meant to exercise? Any ideas to why my body does this would be great as I want to keep up with it. Thanks.
973741 tn?1342346373 If you cannot get up to the “150 minutes” which may seem daunting to most people, even a little bit of exercise is better than no exercise at all and has some health benefits. If you are stuck at home and can break it up throughout the day, that can be as beneficial as doing it all in one go, and keeps you more active throughout the day. If you can go for short walks outside, that might be a good way to start, even if you are only doing 5-10 minutes to start out.
378273 tn?1262101221 My wife is looking at such a surgery herself and has some reservations/concerns. She is not a runner, but would like to continue serious walking/hiking and bike riding (not mountain bike). Not trying to steal or derail your thread, but the hip surgery hit close to home for me too. Again, if the Amiodione (are we talking Amiodarone? that's what I think we're talking about, but if not, then I'm talking to the wrong issue) is effective, you should be better able to run.
Avatar m tn Ever since then its been an ongoing struggle. I feel as if i have no control of my life, and im constantly thinking of my breathing. I feel hopeless and feel as if no one understands what im going through or that i have this disease that doctors cant detect. My doctor has put me on xanax for anxiety and it seemed to cut the edge off a lil but its still there. Its not as bad as when i first got it but it still disrupts my life.
Avatar m tn I had not ridden a bike in 30 years I just started riding a bike again and been riding 20 miles every day for 6 months it makes my legs hurt less. I am retired at 57 my legs hurt all the time and worse at night. When I was young my legs only hurt when I sat in a chair or needed to use the restroom. I have been to several doctors some are puzzled others say it is resless leg syndrome. One doctor gave me Requip.
Avatar n tn Maybe I'm reacting to that. I exercise regularly and do not have a cough. Any ideas of what could be causing this problem.
299260 tn?1304219705 A strong woman isn't afraid of anything… But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear. A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her… But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone. A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future… A woman of strength realizes life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings and capitalizes on them. A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face… But a woman of strength wears grace.
645800 tn?1466864555 For me, riding a bike is my favorite aerobic exercise because it is actually much easier on my legs than running or any other type of cardio. When biking, you are using your legs, but the exercise is very low-impact as compared to running. I find that my legs get a great workout and the distance I am able to ride is very satisfying to me. I also really enjoy being able to feel the wind in my hair ;) I ride a three-speed. For me, three gears are plenty and the bike is pretty low-maintenance.

Avatar m tn If this is due to hormonal imbalances, such as serotonin levels in my case, then the key is a balanced diet, a multi-vitamin, sunshine, physical exercise and give your penis a lot of rest. Perhaps try to go for weeks without sex if possible. I have just started applying all of this for myself. I'm going to a doctor next week and will post my results. Whoever has valid imput or knows a thing or two around medicine and neuroscience please share!
Avatar n tn She is so exhausted that she can't fight no more against medical community in order to admit the origin of her symptoms and to push them to try to find a beginnning of solution. Is there any progress in the comprehension of the cause of these symptoms ? Are there some new treatments that appeared recently to counteract exhaustion and pains ? Do people group themselves in associations to better fight against this disaster ?
Avatar n tn Ladies, we can fight like heck to stay young; we can exfoliate, exercise, cream until we slip out of bed, spend tons of money on products that promise the moon, and despair when we can't reverse time. I'm 67 and arrived at this site because I'm concerned about the wrinkling of skin under my forearms. I'm so glad I found it because most comments show me that I'm blessed by the joy of seeing my much-loved grandmother in my mirror, not distressed by it.
738075 tn?1330579444 I have read in MS publications and been told exercise is good as long as you can do it safely. I stop riding my bike when my balance is off. In my case I see what I can do at any given time. I think the rule is how quickly you bounce back. If you can bounce back with a few hours rest you are ok. If not you are over doing it. I walked five miles Friday and hurt but was ok the next day. I find my muscles get stiff and spasm more with in activity.
Avatar n tn I have been jogging about 2 miles per day, and riding my bike some, mainly with the kids. There is sort of this underlying anxiety all the time, that I think is related to the steroid, that I have to be on. I went and bought the most expensive wig in the store. Long hair, cut in a sort of shag, bangs and a very realistic scalp, so you can part it different ways. The kids think its weird...I do too.
451191 tn?1264436490 No exercise of any type can possibly replace the need for thyroid hormones that you are lacking if you have Hashimoto. You wuill need more hormone as time goes on. After years most Hashi thyroids die and you will be soely dependent on replacement hormone to function. So you know, you need free T3 and Free T4 tests at least twice per year with Hashimoto, not just TSH. Not mentioned, many Hashi people have more aches and pains than before they were diagnosed - Yoga can help with this.
Avatar f tn Also the weekends are a great time for getting out of the house walking (briskly), running, riding a bike or you could record exercise shows from TV or buy some videos and doing those on weekends. I was taught in school that it takes about 4-5 hours a week of exercise to lose weight and 3 hours a week to keep it off once you reach the goal. Changing eating habits for the better permanently is the way to go as well.
12832842 tn?1448732401 The MS Society in past momentum magazine has talked about the benefits of exercise. Both physically and emotionally. There have been studies on it. I took a "Free from Falls class' from the MS Society. We did a half hour of exercise. There was every ability. When the nerves get damaged they are damaged. I have known Olympic athletes with MS that could not do what they used to. I no longer run and I walk slower. I had to give up bike riding because of the falls.
1936411 tn?1333835449 I'm finding lately that after a lot of walking, my toosh and thighs really ache - but not so much after riding my bike. I used to do yoga all the time, but my routine includes the cat stretch, which really makes my Lhermitte's scream. I'll probably tweak my yoga routine so I can get back to it, but I wanted to see if you guys have any other suggestions for low-impact exercise that fit especially well on us MS'ers. I hope everyone is having a good weekend!
Avatar n tn After relatively hard exercise (about one hour of bike riding), I often get throat rightness, particularly on the right side, trouble swallowing, difficulty in fully inhaling, and what feels like sinus congestion--feels as if there is mucus in my nose I cannot get out. I have been diagnosed with exercise-indiced asthma--take Symbicort and Albuterol, as well as reflux, which I control by diet.
