Just wondering if anyone else suffers from this horrible condition?. I'm 31 and feel like I'm 81! :/ pain/stiffness/aching throughout entire body.
Been looking for a suitable workout plan for a while now. Anyone got any ideas?
Hey man I just wanted to say I had a girlfriend who had that and I learned a lot about it and how difficult it is to live with especially how difficult it is to deal with the fact that people don't understand it and can't see it and some people didn't even believe her...
Can't help with workouts though, hopefully someone else can, just wanted to say I feel for ya and good luck.
I have a friend who has it and says yoga and keeping his protein down helps. He also goes steaming...especially after workouts.
Thanks for the replies guys. I think I'm gonna start with a gentle no equipment exercise plan and see how I get on. Work on my core & posture.
I saw your post which for some reason popped on my screen. I live with this ailment. It's a challenge. One post is correct stay in motion. It contradicts because your in pain but it so helps. I walk every chance I get. I'm active with my children. It helps me focus on controlling what I feel physically. Finding out I had it was a blessing because I was not crazy. There was a name to what people said was just in my head. I am trying to lose weight because i found that helped me too when i was a certain weight. Be strong, stay focused, know your limits because pushing beyond it doesn't help. I don't take medication. I refuse to. But maybe for you it may help. As they say everybody is different. Take care.
I have fibro and cfs, and I'm a nurse. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you. Feel free to add me.
I have fibromyalgia too n I'm 30 n yes some days I feel much older. My Dr said losing bout 15lbs could help n cut my caffeine intake down n to stretch every morning at least 5-10mins n to do weight less exercise but to stay in my limits n not over do it. N Hot baths when I'm hurting really bad n I'm also on 5different meds.
I have FM too! Sucks. Eating less meat helps. Lots of green veggies and yoga. Check out the games my fitness evolved 2012+! I have the 2012 one for Xbox kinect and the yoga on it helps alot. I need more tips also! Good luck!
I accidently commented on Lee G.'s post, while I should have replied. And now I can't copy it. So. Well. Please read my comment under his post..;
Sorry. I'm new here and my sleeping pills are kicking in so I'm not really thinking straight, and then you forget some other things..
I currently suffer from FML also and I found that walking and stretching afterwards helped tremendously. My Doc says I should try the yoga, but I've not done so as of yet. I had a really bad "flare up" and wasn't able to walk for about 2 weeks and I definitely could tell the difference in my body. Now since it's been so long I think I've lost the motivation because I remember the excess pain in the beginning of my workout until my body gor used to it...also I keep a journal of my days and I noticed on my worst days there is usually something I can find that triggers the excess pain, if you can find the problem you can find the solution...
Don't give up
