Good morning. First time poster here.
I have been reading about exercise intolerance and wonder if anyone else may have this?
Brief history: around 3-4 years ago I was going to the gym, walking to work and back and suddenly started to feel rather knackered even after a walk and skipping the weights. I felt like I wanted to sleep forever, could not get up in the morning, ached all over like I had run a marathon. Today I am half asleep at my desk all because I had a day out on Sunday and did a lot of walking. My bones hurt. I will drive home from work and sleep for 2 hours. This is slowly getting worse to the point I am going to refuse a gentle evening out tonight as I will not get up for work tomorrow, or even get out of bed.
As a child I was never good at sport and have never in my life managed to get aerobically fit. I have done numerous running programs, failed at 5 minutes and over. I eat healthily and am only a few pounds overweight.
I don't touch alcohol and I haven't smoked in 10 years.
I have often thought about the process of the body getting oxygen into the blood and energy to muscles. I always felt this was missing!! If that makes sense. Exercise Intolerance seems to fit.
I have been to the docs may times over the last few years to get an answer to this as it is affecting my normal life and all the tests come back clear and they say there isn't anything wrong. Well there clearly is!!!!
Does anyone have a similar experience?
Thanks in anticipation and good wished to you all.xx
