Thank you for your own update here as well.
It's great to hear that your twice daily meditation practice, plus as-needed throughout your days, is bringing for you relief in both the pcs loneliness and headaches. Kudos.
Same for me with the ibuprofen
, which I've been taking Rx 800 mg 3 x daily for painful hip/piriformis fasciitis, and back pain ... simply the 'growing pains' of perhaps good consequence of recent physical activity.
(Hmm, like sweeping the walks of pine needles each morning? Like lugging a gigantic potted tropical plant into the sunlight several mornings a week? Lol.
Well, no one else is going to do it for me, so I just 'do it', sometimes w/o thinking of the consequences.)
Nonetheless it's good to be functioning again and not feeling so despondent and uncaring about the walks and the plants.
Much as I do love my rx ibuprofen
, it has for me the negative side effect of, well, plainly: constipation ... which is also a negative side effect for me with any
Thus like you I am glad to not be needing to take the ibuprofen
as regularly as I might otherwise.
Also, yes, the tai chi
can be excellent for balance and will indeed strengthen your leg muscles, addressing that 'weak knees' feeling.
Sounds like you've got one of the few good, knowledgeable, compassionate-listener neurologists who can think for himself outside the box of strictly allopathic medicine approach.
For this also I am very pleased for you, pcslife.
Thank you again for your encouragement and supportiveness on here.
