Exercise Intolerance

missist posted:
I'm just wondering how much of my exercise intolerance is due to fibromyalgia and how much 'might' be my heart or something else.

So.. trying to get a handle on this, thought it might be useful to compare to others--although I do know that it isn't always a good thing as we are all different, I'm looking for a measure to talk to my dr about it.

Take the Poll

Describe what your day is like after a 30 minute average speed walk.
  • Fine, I can do that or more most days.
  • I'd need to rest a few minutes then I'd be fine.
  • I'd need to rest an hour, then I'd be fine.
  • I'd take a nap, then pace myself the rest of the day.
  • I'd be so tired that even after a long nap I would have problems.

I don't have time during the day and when I get home from work, well, NOT going to lie...

I am just to lazy to do it.....

I convince myself that I get my exercise at work and cleaning my house. I don't actually technically workout....

I go over to a health club..and I walk on the tread mill about 30 min. at least three times per week...I never look forward to it..but DH gets me there...and it is good for me..I had to work up to 30 min...and it took awhile to get there.
