any one got any advice
I got shingles 7 months ago and I stupidly afterwards started running too quickly after the illness. I did a 6 mile run and then went downhill after that, symptoms of feeling like I had the flu, sore throats, aches, exhausted and like I am living in a bubble. I carried on working and then had to stop as my job was so physical. I have started to see a nutritionist, seeing a counsellor and seeing a hypnotherapist! I have just started to introduce the pacing as I started to do too much too quickly which has created many ups and downs. Reading these posts has made me realise that I am not on my own. I have really struggled with how this illness has affected my mental well being. I have also found people close to me have not quite understood what has been going on and have tried to push me to do things. I can't not agree more than listening to your body it is imperative and patiences is the key. I would also advise seeing a nutrionist as it can help your immune system to fight any other bugs you might come across. Its a hard road to walk this one but even seeing gradually improvements can lift your spirits. Good luck.
I had m.e 20 years ago and was in a wheelchair for 5 years. Ina lot of pain and absolutely exhausted. I thought I had said a long goodbye to all of that but 3 weeks before my first marathon my body stopped working.my glands rose to golf balls and I was not only unable to do it but the diagnosis of post viral fatigue has bought a huge amount of fear... Just 6 weeks ago I was running 18 miles now I can't run a mile... Rest is what is prescribed .... I can't wait to get back to running again... Feeling so frustrated! Lol
