  • exercise and fatigue

    Hi all,
    I would like to hear your comments related to the exercises.
    When I exercise, for example: I usually do 12 minutes
    cardio machine (Treadmills),I conclude without issues, and so far so good... My question comes here, the next day I feel
    very tired,weak and very sleepy, so much so, that I feel my heart beat
    more difficult. So much so that the only thing I want is to sleep and when I say physical activity I am including sex too,
    THIS HAPPENS ANY OF YOU?


    Thanks


    HCMO / Male: 33
    ICD: Sept 15/2010
    Atenol 150 mg daily

    Putuar, I don't have the next day response, but if I overdo it in the morning, I feel pretty shot for the rest of the day. For me, the limit is about an hour and half of moderate exercize. Beyond that, I hit the wall and feel bad the rest of the day. I am sure everyone has their own limit, and it probably changes over time. You might try tonning down the intensity to see if that helps.

      Sorry this affects you this way. How often do you try to exercise? I agree with Jall, try to gear it down or try a stationary bike or elliptical.
      I found that I was going INTO the gym dehydrated and once I drank a lot the night before (H2O) and in the morning, I did much better.
      Let us know if any of this helps!

        Are you having sleep problems? Especially that night?

            Thanks for responding
            I exercise (just walk) every 2 days, and I do so, because the next day I'm very tired

            Gordon: I usually sleep (8 hours and sometimes 9) without issues.

              Have you asked your HCM doctor about this? I'd let him know and follow his/her advice.
