Okay, I have a strange problem. Approximately 4 weeks ago, I started working from home with fewer hours per day. Once I started doing this, I let down all my barriers to pain, etc, and allowed myself to truly relax. For the first time in years, I feel better. My blood pressure is down, even. This part is wonderful. But here is the weird part. Now that I am relaxed, I feel pretty good when I am resting; however, if I do anything, my symptoms seem worse. I get sick sooner, get nausea faster, dizzy sooner, all the symptoms that we all know and love. I am hoping that now that I have relaxed and stopped pushing myself so hard . . . well, no, I don't understand. Why would my symptoms get worse if now I am relaxed and resting and doing all the other stuff I'm supposed to be doing. I am a bit frightened that I am getting worse. But how would taking care of myself, make my symptoms worse? Does anybody have any ideas? Suggestions? Has this happened to anyone else? I would appreciate any help in this. Thanks!
