Hi everyone! So I’ve had MS for about 2.5 years now. But I have a general question having to do with exercise. Before the MS I was very active - competitive swimming, walking everywhere, you name it. I have still been active the last couple years just not like I used to be.
Recently I’ve been going back to the gym and working out for about an hour and when I come home, after about 30min - 1hr, I feel nauseous (but no vomiting yet), I have a headache, and sometimes my whole body just feels uncomfortable (not pain, but general achy-ness). And it lasts for a couple hours. Has anyone else experienced something like this? I know I’m not imagining it, I know my body. I also have type 1 diabetes, unfortunately, so I know when I’m sick.
When I had my spinal tap done, there were elevated albumin and protein levels in the cerebral spinal fluid. The Neuro was NOT happy and wanted to send me to the MAYO for blood work but I couldn't make the long trip since my husband had open heart surgery in Jan. so we found a local lab to do it. Does anyone know what these elevated levels could mean? She didn't let me know what she thought...
Branched chain Amino acids are essential for proper protein absorption and muscle recovery/maintenance. You can buy them in protein shakes or flavored amino powders. GNC has a latte flavored one I use. It really helps me not be so sore after weightlifting and gives me a little brain energy.
