Fear that you have passed this on to your children.
Feeling betrayed by your body.
Having to concentrate on each step otherwise you trip over your own feet.
Even on a good day knowing you are still on that rollercoaster ride of uncertainty.
Dr. s and thread posters, happy new year. I promised family I wouldnt post about CCSVI this year so ill stick to it.
I can relate to severe fatgue through 400m running. I did more distance but 400m hurt the most. I hit the 40 second mark them it was dead legs. I struggled with the pain afterwards because it was like cramp. The prob was lactic acid.
Dead legs were just like taking sleeping pills but i didnt know what the hell was in them, all i knew was from the top of my thighs and downwards my legs where slow to react.
Fatigue is usually a blockage of the vascular system.
With temple, a quick hit to the temple can ko a boxer or severely daze him, same with below the neck and above the shoulder. both block veins in an instant. Punches to the stomach can kill his legs in later rounds.
I have a family member who suffers fatigue, Ill assume its not lactic acid but its defo a case of not getting enough oxygenated blood to her legs.
cog fog - is disorientation, you realise it and others do too so you feel uncomfortable. Its without a doubt a lack of oxygen to the brain, can see it in MS, selility and ex-stroke people. Prolonged exposure can lead to spacicity, as can the same principle lead to other bodyparts.
wallwalker - Shyness. too embarrased to admit you need help. 1st thing id admid to a doc is im feeling fine but a feeling bit low, nothing to do with my own issues.
purple feet - coldness in the feet, an obstruction in the vascular system in the ankles & possibly upper shin, probably a result of swelling through arthritis. Personally I get the opposite in my feet, totally burning. Hands are naturally blue with cold and painful. Ran 3 miles in the snow barefoor and my feet went white and I couldnt walk for a week, strangely enough, pins and needles feeling.
Fatigue cannot be measured correctly. Everyone is at a different fitness level. Go to docs and feeling fine? 8/10. On a rough day? 3/10.
I know what fatigue is, one is after extreme pressure and the other is medically unexplainable exhausion. Both relate to lack of oxygen, both can be improved with oxygen replacement. Stress also restricts the veins, hense stage fright, taking it to its basic example, a guy no being able to pee in a public toilet.
