One Reply to “About”

  1. Dear Sara

    I thought I had replied to your answer but clearly I didn’t log it properly, so apologies for the delay in replying.

    Since we had contact, sadly my situation has got worse. I had to stop the Bikram classes because I was too drained and it was hampering my adrenal fatigue. To be fair, I was also very busy at this time so perhaps if I could do a class and rest I’d be ok.

    Unfortunately I didn’t continue with my back exercises because I was so depleted and tired. Then as I got a little energy I started to do some strength training (with a PT) to try and help my bones and build muscle again because I’m very weak. I also did a reformer class that I thought would help my back, but actually because I was fatigued it just aggravated it and because most Pilates instructors don’t understand how my nerve and pain works I overdid it and think the flexion postures finished my back off.

    That was 2 weeks ago and I have had increasing pain down my leg and in my glute ever since. It’s the worst it’s been in a long time so I’m off to see my Chiro on Tuesday. I’m pretty annoyed at myself for letting it get this far, however adrenal fatigue is a horrible disease – it affects you both physically and mentally and you start to lose the will some days.

    Anyway, I just wanted to reply to you because I appreciated your response. I will try and see if I can find a Bikram instructor in London who understands slipped discs as well as you do. I’m definitely unable to do a hot class but am trying to do some back bends every day. Although I’ve realised that my hyper-mobility makes it hard for me to know how far to go and what’s back strength and what’s flexibility.

    Thanks again Sara.

    All the best,
    Emma
