Hi. I’ve only recently been googling for MS info. Honestly I dont know if i want to be here (bec what that would say about me accepting that I have MS – I’m a mess). But I’m really struggling with pain and mobility and worse is i don’t feel i am getting the support I need from mu neuro.
Anyway. There’s lots online about how people still manage to run with MS. I used to run 3-4 times a week, about 4-6km a go, but now I can barely run two before my arms and legs pain, feel numb and I get terrible aches in the days afterwards. Or sometimes I’m completely fine and post-run I am like I used to be enjoying a recovery. my psychiatrist says I should stop running as I am destroying my body. i know I am in a form of denial (if i can run then it means my MS isnt a thing) which we’re working on but I honestly love the feeling that running gives me (I also have chronic major depression and recently battled suicide ideation, again!). I’m also a terrible swimmer so I don’t get the cardio workout I want from that.
Anyone with similar experiences? Any insights? And how people with MS cope with office work, esp in senior leadership roles. I am a head of department and I’ve been thinking alot about quitting. The emotional, physical and psychological demand, along with the MS fatigue, is too much for me to cope nevermind thrive.
