    I try to get exercise but, due to the pain I live with it makes some exercise totally off limits.
    And I have to consider all of the effects/consequences from doing the simplest ways to get my exercise.
    I have tried walking,biking and during the summer months because during the winter/colder months I have to stay indoors to to the severe spasms I get due to the cold.
    So, basically biking is the only exercise I physically enjoy aside from swimming. Any ideas?
