How many of us here can honestly say that we put forth a good exercise program. After reading a ton about exercise and its effects. I gotta bring this to the table.
It is proven that exercise:
Is outstanding for your blood circulation and the microcirculation around inner ears.
Can be a nice VRT compliment.
Raises the brain chemicals (seratonin, dopamine etc.)
Great for controlling your blood pressure.
Wonderful for your nervous system.
Increases energy and stamina.
Keeps the immune system in check.
Keeps stress and anxiety at bay.
And most importantly for us, it can work as a wonderful migraine preventative.
and I'm sure there's more.
Sounds like a wonderful thing for all of us here don't it?
To get all those effects, you have to be consistant with it weekly.
After reading those reasons of what exercise has proven to do, Why aren't we all just jumping for joy as this could be the main answer for us to get rid of the dizzi's?
Now I am defiantaly guilty of not exercising as much as I should. Not even close. Partly because jogging and other cardiovascular exercises can make migraine worse at first especially if you're overdoing it. Time is another reason. And definatley not easy to do while dizzy all the time.
I just really want to know if anyone here is a constant exercise fanatic and does and has exercised weekly for months on end while having MAV. Has it helped, made things worse, are you dizzy free. Let us know. I have yet to be really consistant with exercise so I don't know.
I did find someone in the success story's by the name of Stargrave that got rid of there dizziness completeley just from doing the eliptical. But he stated that it was the consistancy and that particular machine is what got him dizzy free. Got me thinking. Do we all just need to give an honest go at consistant exercise in our daily lives? I see some of us here including myself who give it a go for a few weeks or a few months and then give it up and come back to it months later or whatever.
Most of the dr.'s i've seen for this MAV shit has all told me to add in some cardio for this stuff. There must be something to it, maybe more than we give it credit for.
