Hey, I have some good news regarding my progress. Back in July 2012 I could only cycle on my exercise bike for 30 seconds before the ‘lactic acid’ type pain set into my leg muscles and I had to stop and wait a little while for it to disperse. Well that was also true up to a couple of months ago, which was the last time I tried.
However, on Saturday I decided to have another go and managed 5 minutes 25 seconds and I still wasn’t in pain in my legs. I’m certain I could have gone on longer but I had to stop due to pain in my chest (POTS!)
In the meantime I had changed my drug regime to eventually include the following:-
CoenzymeQ10 (Ubiquinone) – 90mg taken 3 x daily with food
Cetirizine – 10mg 3 x daily
Diamox – 250mg at night
Twice weekly use of ‘Circulation Booster’ machine
Twice weekly baths in Radox muscle soak
Vitamin C 1000mg effervescent with my evening meal
Vitamin B complex, with other vitamins & minerals including zinc & magnesium.
So I do not know how to precisely identify which, or which combination is responsible but, whatever it is it’s a damn good start. I can’t wait to see what improvements 2013 brings!
