Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

how old are you?

are you male or female?

once you warm up after you start out walking, your muscles become more loose, and your heart and lungs work faster

which can lead you to walking faster.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
