A shower in the morning, helps start the day strengthened and renewed, right?Mmm, no, not so much for many of us.A shower seems basic, simple, but can pose significant problems for someone with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome .There is much talk about how exhausting it can be a shower. Why a shower tires us, sometimes for the rest of the day?
Several of our physiological abnormalities might be related.Effort: Especially for people with chronic fatigue syndrome, even small amounts of movement can be too.A shower uses more power than we think, stand all the time, do a lot of push-ups, stretching, and vigorous soaping head and body.Relaxation:Hot water from the shower can be relaxing, it’s good in some ways.However, for those we deal with profound fatigue, probably not the best start to the day, when we are still struggling to wake up.
Sensitivity to temperatures: While hot water can feel good, you can also make our sensitivity to temperature make disappear the self-regulation of our body temperature. Our bodies have trouble keeping the right temperature, so when heated else, it costs a lot freshen up and get back to normal.Some sweated profusely after a shower.dizziness: We are prone to seasickness, and the heat of the shower combo with washing movements can produce costing us balance.I had dizziness terrifying in a hot shower!A major response of the nervous system: Especially in fibromyalgia, pressure water hits the skin can alter the nervous system.And this leads to send wrong signals pain and make the whole body hurts.Some ways to fight the problem is to take a shower at night because exhaustion is welcome, or take immersion baths instead, they pose some of the same problems, but you sit and do not need to move much, it is less demanding.The immersion bath produces both steam and is easier when salts cool water.Although I have not had an extreme problem with the shower, as some people have, when I’ve been sicker, there were times I used wipes.They are for the face, but work well for these situations.The unscented baby wipes are also good.I can use them to quickly and easily, especially on days that I will not go freshen up.Not for everyday, but you can replace a shower when you’re not well. For me, the feeling is very unpleasant greasiness, I feel bad about myself.
