Have started to exercise and 2 days ago, I went for a bicycle ride to Karlstad 8 km from here. After a good night sleep, I woke up with stiff neck muscles and dizzy. The more I moved my shoulders, the more dizzy I became.
So I took a bicycle ride yesterday's evening again, but a really short one. While bicycling, I became num in the muscles of my shoulders and I got a bit dizzy.
Today, I woke up the same as yesterday 😩 But this time, I'll take Voltaren Gel 😏 Hopefully, that shit will work!
Dizziness is odd, first time I hear of this. What type of bicycle do you have? Was it fitted for you by the shop you got it from?
It seems there is a problem with your spine, probably in the neck region. The road bumps lead to a nerve being irritated.
You should talk to doctor.
Else, if you are leaning forward you might need to sit more upright. Also you should get extra suspensions for the saddle.
@normandc Before November, 2018, I had very weak muscles because I didn't exercise and was "only" in front of the computer. In November, 2018, I got a concussion after a whiplash. From that point, my neck muscles got locked in a stiff position.
I started to exercise 2019, but didn't followed the plan. Didn't exercised basically at all in 2020 and this year, I started again last Tuesday when my muscles were very stiff.
My bike is a city bike and my dad gave me it as an early birthday present.
Oof, the whiplash explains things. I get you, getting exercise is a struggle. Cycling is the only physical activity that I like, so in the winter I'm mostly a couch potato. The pandemic confinement and curfew we had here didn't help either.
When I was a child and a teen, my family would go cross skiing and I like it a lot. I still haven't managed to resume this activity as an adult. It's hard to muster the motivation to get outside in the winter.
@normandc Yeah 😣 Thanks for understanding 🙂 I enjoy bicycling more than I enjoy walking, but I am trying to walk more and more. Not easy alone, though 🙄
True. The pandemic last year got me startled too 😬 Luckily, we didn't had any lockdown at all, but it did affect me anyway.
Yeah, I bet because of the cold 😅 Right?
