A theory about LD pain and circulation

My theory is that good circulation promoted by exercise helps to wash the body's natural chemicals that cause pain (part of the immune response to LD) away from the area.

That's why it only lasts a short while before the pain returns and why sometimes when you sit down pain feels worse! (chemicals collect again, making the pain more distinct).

Just my theory, but I've been observing this for a while and some others have reported a similar experience. Times like this I regret that there's not more medical expertise.

So since we are the only experts, I wonder if anyone has any thoughts about this?

Re: A theory about LD pain and circulation

Good morning-

I agree with your observations. When I don't move, the areas of tightness ( I have both bilateral dups and LD) increase. Once I begin my walk or cycle, it amazes me how my body begins to unwind and relax. I believe the seratonin level increases.

I also agree that we are the experts and need to continue to share concerns and personal experiences. I am constantly questioning my present and next movements and approach i.e. Do I see the physio or chiropractor to release the tightness on my right side that is currently appears to be resulting in left foot pain or just wait it out, as after a while my body returns to the pattern it feels most comfortable with.

Also people suggest don't walk!, take anti-inflammatory drugs. Oh if they only knew it isn't that simple!

Hi Wilsongolf
Thanks for your thoughts. I notice the 'feel good' effects of seratonin also. There's also the body's natural endorphins, which would help.

I suppose that when the nodules get really big, they might get affected by walking more than when they're smaller and use of pain medication might be necessary. Mine are pretty big, but they have only just started so probably not as deeply established yet. Others who have had the condition longer may experience more pain than I currently do.

I'd be really interested in hearing more about how you manage the tightness you refer to? There's another thread on everyday management of LD where a few of us have shared this sort of information, if you like you could elaborate in that thread to help others to find what you done to manage your symptoms? Also, I wasn't sure where the tightness was? Just i n the affected feet and hands, or elsewhere?

All the best
Di

Re:LD pain and circulation and ORTHODICS :ATTN Cyclist

Hi-

I am curious Di, aka cyclist... Do you wear orthodics? I have come to the realization with the assistance of my massage therapist ( who practiced her new deep fascia release technique on both feet and lower legs last Tuesday) and my osteopath ( who released the tightness in my left leg last Friday and said 'You don't need them ( orthodics)) that I would try NOT to wear the orthodics which appear after both treatments to cause pain on my left inner thigh and upper right back/shoulder.
Results: today is Day 3 walking in bare feet around my home and wearing the runners without orthodics. I hope that I am able to do my walks without them .

I am very interested in hearing others experience with orthodics.

Re: A theory about LD pain and circulation

Interestingly, Prof. Seegenschmiedt recommended to me the NIKE FREE shoe, which is avaliable in different hardness levels. Mine has 5.0 and it really helps to keep the muscles of the foot well circulated while walking !



I am not using orthotics, as the feet remain more INACTIVE ! My strength in the foot is also increased by AQUA-Jogging .... Best to all ! Larry

I think it is exactly right, and part of why mornings are the worst. The last few nights, I'm awakedned by tearing pain in my hands when I straighten them. Once our fascia adapts to our position, it doesn't want any rapid changes.
Since we can't keep moving 24/7, it's hard to find an answer to what is the right amount of exercise. The day after a very busy day can be really rough..at least for me. So, it seems moderate daily exercise is the thing, even if it is just moving around doing housework all day. Perhaps I should say alternating periods of exercise and rest, moderate on both parts. Because when we overdo, we just want to crash. Crashing is fine, it's the getting back up that's a killer.
I think staying really well hydrated makes a difference, too.
I suppose if we all had a live in masseuse, we would also feel better!

For Poor circulation is caused by diabetes and obesity heart condition and arterial issues. PAD causes poor circulation in leg it commonly cause at the age of above 50. LD pain natural ingredient to heal and maintain pain.
