Pearls and Dreams
Blood tests came back perfectly fine!!!
So ... they said to stop pushing it so hard in PT. If that doesn't let up, then they'll have me stop the Vytorin for a few days and see if that stops it.
Problem is, I went to PT and forgot to tell the Physical Therapist and let him actually UP my program (grin)
I'm wondering, if my muscles are just trying to adjust to all this, and that's why, and if they'll stop cramping up on me, or, if this is part of pushing it with having the MG & Lupus and it's gonna keep happening if I keep pushing.
10 minutes on the recumbant bike
20 step ups
2 sets of 20 squats on the wobble board
1 set of 20 squats against the wall
I did Leg presses today ... 65 lbs with both legs, 35 with the injured leg. 3 sets of 10 of each
5 minutes on the total gym
I had to tip toe over these cones ... 16 cones, up and back ... 5 times ..up and back count as one, on my toes OVER the cones.
Then he has this computer machine where I had to balance on one foot for 20 seconds and it registers how still I'm standing ... not good. I had to do it six times ... 3 eyes open, 3 eyes shut. THIS IS the exercise causing my charlie horses, I'd put money on it!!!
30 lbs on the leg lifts with both legs
15 lbs with just one ..but I had to do 5 sets of 6 lifts instead of 3
sets of 10, my legs just would not do it past the 7th one.
I did 20 straight leg lifts, and 20 clams
then he iced it with stim for about 15 minutes.
