From this study (3 months ago):
I exercise 30 plus minutes 5 days a week for cardio and do weights and core exercises daily; eat a heart-healthy diet.
From this study (6 months ago):
Mostly feet and leg pain. Also hands and face feel same thing but less severe.
It is worse in the evenings. Extremities feel swollen & hot like I'm getting a fever. Temp is mildly elevated and nothing appears to be swollen.
I am exhausted by the smallest amount of exercise, even walking a short distance. For so s reason, I can do activities & physical therapy in water (preferably cool) without much discomfort.
