In 1998 I had physiotherapy on bed for a couple of months which worked out the wrong way, so we stopped. Because now I have improved so much that I can walk for 15 meters and sit up for 30 minutes, I thought I could try it again, maybe it works this time.
Well my physiotherapist came last Thursday (April 19th) and lying on bed I did the following exercise: pull your knee towards you (without getting more pain) while sliding your heel over your bed. I have done this 3 times with each leg and then my physiotherapist did this exercise for me (so I had to relax my leg fully without helping her moving my leg), then I had to do it on my own again. The times I had to move my leg on my own I managed to do this 3 times before I got cramp in my leg.
The days after I had more pain, especially in my upper legs, more tremors and spasms and the well known electrical current feeling (as if thousands of needles were sticking in my legs), and of course I was much more tired.
The purpose was that I do this exercise as often as I can, but of course this was impossible. Then Sunday I got unconscious for 2 hours and on Monday I got unconscious again due to a too low blood pressure (80/50 and lower).
I don’t know if this is a reaction to physiotherapy or not. It could be, so my next appointment was postponed to the following week.
It can also be a reaction to a spray for shoes my friend used. It really smelt terrible and I did get the following symptoms: nausea, pain in my nose, headache and a light feeling in my head. I am allergic to chemicals so Henk sprayed his shoes outside, but the smell isn’t gone immediately.
Although I am suffering from drop downs in consciousness and that I am gone for a few seconds for some years now, but lately it is getting worse.
Is this a sign that I have to calm down?
BTW according to my physiotherapist I probably also have a whiplash.
Last summer Henk and I had a car-accident, we were hit from behind, and I had to go lay down on a stretcher in the ambulance and go to the hospital. It was my first trip with the car since years, so it was a nice trip out…. NOT.
How so, bad luck?!
Last Thursday (May 3rd) I had physiotherapy again. Because I was terribly tired and my whole body felt stiff, we did only passive exercises. So actually the same as last time but she bent my knees. And yes, it hurts in my joints and the days after walking was painful and hard. And I am so tired/exhausted that I wish I could get something that I sleep for a couple of days.
After a couple of times I quite physiotherapy, it apparently still works out bad for me. I am now trying Cesar-therapy.
