Hello! I'm making slow progress with my healing. My pain from the acute attack is getting better and I'm focusing on trying to move a little more normally, including my daily treadmill walks. I spent last weekend doing absolutely nothing out of obligation and just enjoying myself, and the pain definitely decreased during that time. The one thing I still struggle with is that my muscles respond to the oxygen deprivation by getting REALLY tight. Even before I had any TMS pain issues, I tended to have pretty tight muscles that needed to be stretched pre and post-workout. In addition to the oxygen deprivation causing that, my stuff body movements for the past several months have just exacerbated the tightness. When I get out of bed now, my entire body just feels like a tightly stretched rubber band. Because of this, I just don't feel comfortable bending straight forward just yet. Even though I know there is nothing structurally wrong, I feel like the oxygen deprivation has resulted in muscles that are bound too tight and I don't want to pull anything by trying to go for the gusto first thing in the morning. Thoughts on this? I don't want to sabotage my healing, but I also don't want to push myself and end up with more fear. Will the muscle tightness get better with time and give me more comfort about normal movement, or do I need to just start pushing myself?
