Exercise for those of us with Fatigue?

I suffered a relapse a year ago that has left me with some significant fatigue. Basically I had to choose between being able to work full time, and being able to work part time and able to continue exercising. Well...ive gained 2 sizes in that year, but am still working :roll:

So, I am looking for some advice from anyone who has experience trying to balance ...

Does exercise have any effect on MS exacerbations?

I'm getting mixed opinions over the thoughts of MS and exercise. Somebody in my IRL group says that it made their exacerbations a bit more frequent. Others say it makes it less frequent and less severe. I run pretty much whenever I can (Along with some mild strength training 3 times a week), and it didn't really seem to have any effect whatsoever on the occurrences of my attacks, but it did lessen the severity ...

Fitness in a wheelchair?

Hello,

I'm a brand new member here. I don't have MS but I do have T6 complete spinal cord injury that has me paralyzed from the chest down.

I wanted to see whether or not any of you in a wheelchair try to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and if so, how do you manage it?

I've been wheelchair-bound for 5 years now... and my weight is slowly creeping up. I eat the same amount but ...

Tough Mudder?! Anyone?

Hey everyone,

I was just curious if any fellow pwMS have ever done the Tough Mudder competition and what their experiences were with it. I know its a little extreme, but I kinda feel I want to give it a shot while I still can.

Thanks!!! :razz:

Hate gyms, not exercise? Here's a great option...

Like the subject implies, I've got nothing against exercise but the very last place I want to do it is in a gym. So I'm willing to invest in exercise equipment when I know I'll use it (and have somewhere to put it!)...

For several years we had a treadmill and then switched to an elliptical trainer for lower impact. Two years ago my herniated disc acted up and made even that a problem, and ...

Muscle spasms

I think we all know that MS can do just about anything to you, so almost any symptom I experience I tend to attribute to MS, my default diagnosis. But I'm not 100% sure about this one...

For many years I worked out at a gym at least every other day and was very goal-oriented. I pumped more iron than any other woman in the gym, which is a pretty significant accomplishment because I'm fat, ...

Kettlebells!

They're really cool! Anyone else using them? Got any hints? The one I bought turned out to be missing the instruction/exercise sheet, and the video is way too difficult for me. I have to adapt a few of the exercises, and it's a pain to FForward or wait patiently for the next set.

Still, I can see a really big difference in a lot of my previously lumpy areas. In a good way, of course. ...

Foot Drop exercises

I must be completely daft at searching the web, because I cannot seem to find any exercises for foot drop (in relation to MS), specifically dorsiflexion exercises. Does anyone know of a website that would help in this area?
