My problem with soreness is that my whole ribcage is sore. I feel kinda like the "guest of honor" at a "blanket party". (Blanket party is an form of punishment usually used in basic training, where a member of the unit messes up & the whole unit gets punished. The unit can then throw a blanket over the messup's body and everybody in the unit puts a bar of soap in a sock and hits the blanket with it. Its not supposed to leave bruises but the guest of honor aches like crazy for a day or two)

My whole ribcage hurts when I breathe, here lately, especially when I cough.

I am not sure, but the main thing which has changed in my life since it started is I am now sleeping on an air mattress on the floor in one of my son's bedrooms. I was used to sleeping on one of those adjustable memory foam mattresses. I am eager to get my own apartment so I can sleep on that bed again. Hopefully the soreness will go away.

I am sure you will be very happy to get your own apartment so you can rest and sleep comfortably again. Hopefully this terrific soreness will go away and leave you in peace. Wish I could wiggle my nose and Boom, you would be in your new apartment and not have your ribcage so sore. This must be hard to deal with. Blessings to you that tomorrow will be "sorefree."

Thanks for your kind wishes. Actually the soreness is diminishing so I am becoming more comfortable now. I'm still probably a week away from getting in and setting up if my application is accepted ( which is by no means a slam dunk). If not, it's back out beating the bushes for an apartment.

Bless your heart, the soreness drives me crazy but you have to put up with going numb. Hope both of us can lose this problem quickly, don't you? Good Luck to you.

I have a sore neck and shoulder. I've been blaming it on using a weight that was maybe a little too heavy for one of my exercises. Aerobics makes it better, but then it does stiffen up at night. I've taken a break from strength training, but it is taking a long time to get better. It's been about 2-1/2 weeks and is finally improving. I hope you feel better soon.

I was using weights for a coupla weeks when this all started up, and first it was in my neck. Thought I had pulled a muscle, that cleared and then into the upper shoulders. No more weights for me, don't want a rerun..At first this went on about a month then disappeared. Now it is coming and going, but not as bad.Hope you bounce back real fast…Have a nice day!!

Thank you. Fortunately for me, I have been doing workouts with weights since last April when I flunked my bone density test, and this is the first time I think I over did it. I wouldn't give it up for anything now, because it seems to have such a positive impact on my blood glucose levels, even into the day after I have a workout. I normally work out with weights 40 minutes 3 times a week. This is added to my 3 times a week aerobics, two 2-mile walk-runs, and 3 longer walks each week. Not everything every day, but at least one, and two on my strength-training days. And the toning and strengthening is apparent. I have to wait a total of two years to repeat the bone density test, but I'm hopeful that it will be better then.
You have a good day, too, MewElla!

Thanks, CaliKo. Some good points you raise about your exercise, lots of things done and I know this would be varied and not boring. I have bone density next month. All my walking done 6 days a week, has been big transformation for me, my endurance and strength is stronger, definitely more toned, lost 70 lbs and basically feel so much better. But constantly tweaking myself, I want to be the healthest I can be and learn all I can about diabetes. Knowledge makes one powerful and for me, ready to work harder to maintain.

Wow! 70 pounds is impressive! Kudos to you. I lost 45 my first year, and yes, feel ever so much better, too. I agree, knowledge is key!
