  • Excersise

    Hi everyone

    I was wondering how people have been doing with high aroebic excersise. I have always been a big workout freak, and it seems I start to feel better then start running again or doing one of my higher intensity workouts I end up feeling cramping and burning couple days after. Does anyone think they one may have to do with the other??

    Hi, I believe they are linked. I used to go to the gym and enjoy cycling but have had to give it all up as i always end up burning either during the exercise or a couple of days later. It is so frustrating and i can empathise with you completely. I have tried pilates and find i am ok with this, i just find i cant do it when i am having a flare up, but it certainly does not cause me to have any pain. I think low impact exercise is the way to go. Swimming may be a good one if the chlorine in the water is not one of your irritants.

      I find that low impact exercise, such as walking and swimming, work best for me. I have a treadmill to use when the weather is bad. When the weather is hot, I don't do a lot of walking, but I do swim daily.

        I've been wondering the same thing! I do Jazzercise and I feel better while exercising, but then I get worse after. I really don't want to give it up, but I've been toying with the idea of yoga or something else like that.

          I know it is soooo frusterating I went out and got couple yoga dvd's we'll see. I just dont feel like it is a fat/calorie workout. I am used to high intensity. But I am finding out the burning and pain after not worth it. Going to have to redo my whole excerise thought process....

            I feel the same way about the high intensity stuff. As a former dancer and runner, I feel like if I'm not jumping and skipping around, I'm not working out! I'm not quite ready to give up the Jazzercise yet, but it's really not looking good.
            Kierd, if I end up looking for a yoga class in the area, I'll let you know what I find. I don't think I'd have the motivation to do the DVDs at home. I've always been much more motivated by going to class.

                  I've always played sports and exercised, and most things I did were high impact. A year or so ago I was practicing a high impact martial art (second time I've done martial arts). I loved the exercise but I noticed I was experiencing leaking for some reason and felt some discomfort. The jumping and intensity was too much I'm assuming. Currently I'm doing the elliptical and rowing machine at the gym. I make sure to break a good sweat. I find these two things (along with weight lifting and yoga) are bladder friendly for me because I'm not jumping up and down with force. (I used to like running but that's an issue for me because of IC)

                  Diagnosed: 2011 - have had symptoms for over 20 years. Diagnoses so far: Overactive Bladder, then IC, and now Myofacial Pelvic Pain Syndrome.

                  Medicines: For IC am doing PT, and will be taking Gabapentin, Ativan, Tramadol and Ambien. Ice packs and drinking vanilla shakes help. Foods that cause a flare, tomatoes, yogurt, coffee, soda, all sports drinks, and most teas. Take Verapamil, Naproxen (as needed), Omeprazole, Frova (as needed) and receive Botox shots(every three months) for migraines. For allergies I use Claritin and Flonase. (Feel free to ask me any questions about meds.)

                  Other conditions: Migraines, allergies, mild IBS.

                    I would like to do something else with my excerise timetable. I do aqua fit and circuits and 2/3 pilates classes. Can you do Body Pump which is with weights Squats, Presses, Lifts and Curls. I have done this in the pass before I had IC. Many Thanks

                      I can do squats and upper extremity stuff but nothing that involves bending at the waist with weights. Something like dead lifts flares me terribly. I would also be very careful with pilates as that is a lot of core work

                          I've not been in a saltwater pool, but I do know that salt can be very drying so you'll want to be sure to shower thoroughly after swimming in salt water. There's only one salt sterilization pool near where I live and I've thought about trying it so I'm interested.

                            Hi, I have been experiencing the same thing and thought I was the only one. I can't go shopping for very long because I start hurting, I can't do much cleaning around the house because I hurt and I certainly cannot exercise either which is very frustrating. I had thought about yoga and am going to try it. Hopefully if nothing else, I can stretch some of the pelvic floor muscles so they will quit having spasms.
