Re: Exercise & how long till it shows its effectiveness?
I have been wondering about this myself. It's rare that I feel good enough to exercise and I consider my housework that I struggle through as my workout. But, I have also noticed that even on the days where I am most exhausted I always feel better if I move around, even if it's just a little. So, exercise must give us some energy. The problem is where do you draw the line. I get very sick if I do too much, so is walking laps around the block going to make me sick too? I guess the only way to know is trial and error. I think I am going to start with very small walks and see how my body responds. I am in bad shape, though. I would think if you are in good shape, you could do more. Just be careful. If your doctor reccomends it, maybe he has seen that it helps some people with this condition. I would think in our case with our illness it would definetly take longer to see the benefits.
