        I recently started physical therapy in a pool.  I meet one on one with a physical therapis and spend about 45 minutes in the water.  My problem is two fold the buoyancy of the water really masks  my weakness and I take my Mestinon every 4 hours and it seems like I can’t  get the timing right so I can manage to get out of the pool without feeling as weak as a new kitten.i love the pool and I can walk on the pool tread mill for 20+ minutes without any joint pain.  Has anyone found an exercise they can do daily that doesnt exacerbate their MG, but gentle on their joints or found a better way to dose their Mestinon to help with the weakness. Thanks

          I have mentioned before that the pool is my lifeline in the Summer. I swim up to 20 lengths which is about 10 lengths of a standard olympic size pool. I also find that my energie levels go up quickly and hy keep my wet swimsuit on the entire day. It does effect my muscle weakness and my toes do a merry dance at night but, I take my last mestinon no later than 5 in the afternoon. Helps with the cramps caused by the Mestinon.
