Prolonged pain in muscles after exercising

Prolonged pain in muscles after exercising was created by pattigaff317
I am a 59 year old female who was diagnosed almost three years ago with ITP. My "normal" was around 35k with very few side effects. In January, 2018, I developed pneumonia and my platelets fell to 13k. My hematologist decided to put me on Promacta (50 mg) and I have a new "normal" of 67K. After five months, I am finally feeling well enough to begin exercising again. I have done Pilates for several years and have always felt it is easy on the joints; however, after my last session, concentrating on the thighs, I am so tight and sore, I cannot move without pain three days later. For the first time, we did a more strenuous exercise and really had the cardio going for about 5 minutes. I am wondering if this is another thing to deal with. Does ITP cause muscles to have a slower recovery? Do I need to really back off?

My thought: If you had not been exercising for 5 months and started up again at the level where you left off you are going to be very sore! One needs to gradually get back to where they where when they stopped exercising! Take care!

Muscle soreness or stiffness after exercise, also known as delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), is a common occurrence and is generally not directly related to ITP. DOMS is caused by microscopic damage to muscle fibers during exercise or physical activity, particularly when you engage in new or more intense workouts. It is a normal part of the muscle adaptation process.
However, it's important to listen to your body and adjust your exercise routine accordingly. If you're experiencing prolonged or excessive muscle soreness, it may be beneficial to gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workouts. Give your body enough time to recover between sessions, and consider incorporating stretching or foam rolling exercises to help with muscle tightness and improve flexibility.
