That's awesome! Do you ice skate? You can build a ton of muscle that way
I don't ice skate. I have issues with vertigo and ataxia, so it'd be a recipe for disaster. I'm able to ride a bike without much issue, and I like that for working the lower body while getting some cardio. I need to be careful doing cardio, though. I really, really need my calories, lol. I lost 12 lbs from malabsorption.
Ah, gotcha. I get random episodes of what I think might be vertigo but it could also be a symptom of something else. I can undunderstand how that would make things difficult. Hmmm, have you tried doing yoga? It's slower going but you can build muscle without the intensity of cardio. I have trouble gaining weight so I understand being careful about cardio. 12lbs holy crap.
I do yoga every now and again. I'm used to heavy lifting, so I don't really find it great for building muscle. It really helps stretch out the muscle fatigue, though. It helps my balance issues, too. I normally don't have issues keeping a healthy weight but for nearly two months I was barely digesting food.
How bizarre! I had that happen after I had a bad case of pneumonia. Took me a year to get to 100lbs. It was terrible. :/ I hope your body stops doing that.
I've only done some heavy lifting, which I enjoyed, but being in motion helps my hypervigilance tone down so I like yoga. I want to buy a weight set and get back to lifting though, to tone up. Were you a body builder?
My blood work indicates possible Celiac, but aside from systemic GI inflammation, my pathology did not. It's not normal to lose weight and nutrients with IBS; so they're not positive it's that either. That means my diagnosis is "we don't frickin' know." I've cut it out and I've been able to put three pounds back on and get a lot of relief from all my symptoms. They don't want to retest anytime soon.
I wasn't a bodybuilder. I had previously lost a crap ton of weight and got into lifting weights to help fix what had happened to my body composition.
Oh, I can understand that. I was getting a ton of blood work done, a tilt table test, mri, etc. Was not fun at all. 6 months later I use google and find out I was having panic attacks... lol Medical here is awful though. If you ever have to live in Virginia, don't. Lol
