magnesium loss and exercise

Update on the relationship between magnesium and exercise. Nielsen & Lukaski 2006
Magnesium is involved in numerous processes that affect muscle function including oxygen uptake, energy production and electrolyte balance. Thus, the relationship between magnesium status and exercise has received significant research attention.

Rubber legs?


I spent about an hour walking in the pool today. (First time in ages)
I also have hip dysplasia, so any high impact is out.
My legs felt fine in the pool, yet when I got out, they felt like rubber, and I had zero balance.
Is it possible I spent too long in the pool? I feel fine now, so what gives?
Any ideas?

Physical or Occupational therapy experiences

I asked my neurologist whether anything could be done to help with losing my balance/ almost falling. To my surprise he referred me to a physical therapist.

The referral meant that insurance would cover it. So, I went. And I'm now walking backwards, rocking between heels and toes while holding something stable, side stepping crossing one foot in front of the other while holding something stable.

But the wierdest one was for my hands. I'm ...

Hey guys!

I see a lot of topics related to exercise and I was wondering if anyone considered taking part in a rehabilitation program? As far as I can see there are some MS specific rehabilitation programs floating around the web and I was wondering what are your opinions about them? Personally I feel like a month long rehabilitation program (think of it as a vacation trip to take care of your body and your ...
