Fitness update // Vertigo Doom




I went to the gym on Wednesday and Thursday evening last week. The only evenings I had free. It was hard.

Not the workouts themselves, but I’ve been struggling with vertigo again. It’s been a year since I was diagnosed with it and I go through good periods and bad periods, the last week has been awful. It started on Wednesday. After I got off the treadmill. I had only done 30 minutes of cardio and it hit me. I had to stop walking in the middle of the gym and pretend I was looking at my phone because I was sure I was going to pass out. I made it to the changing rooms and then sat down for a bit before leaving.

It happened again on Thursday. I did some weights and then went on the spin bike. After 2o minutes I felt terrible slowed down to bring my heart beat down, then had to cut my workout short.

Saturday at work was horrible. I was so embarrassed by it. In the end I had to swallow my pride and basically get someone to carry me to my car so I could get my medication. I’m surprised I made it through my whole shift.

I’m really hoping it will pass soon because I don’t want to sacrifice my workouts even more because of this. It’s disheartening when all I want to do is get back into a routine but exercise is setting it off.

I’m feel a bit pants.

Send help, wine and cheese.

    I know it’s hard but weirdly in this kind of scenario you may be putting your health first by taking a step back from exercise. <3 Look after yourself.
