exercise and pain

Good morning All!

I went to my first beginner's yoga class yesterday. It was hard but not as bad as I expected. Last night I felt like a truck ran me over! But this morning I feel okay. I will try to go again next Wednesday.

Great job....

Just remember start out at your pace. Moving is the best thing for FM....

Good for you and keep it up!

I am a big advocate for exercising but I know it can be tough to overcome the added pain it can cause.

I don't think there's an easy answer for this. I have been exercising regularly for years and I still get pain spikes from it-usually an hour or two after. But overall, I feel better and have more energy. I also do some higher impact exercising that I wouldn't suggest for people with FM and so I know that is part of it.

Be very conscious about your body. It's easy to push a little too much, especially when you're in a class. But as time goes on, you'll learn when to push and when to do a modified move.

It's a wonderful day when you actually look forward to exericise and it feels good!

Well done!

Let us know if you find it improves how you feel over time as you keep at it.
