Energy And Exercize

Energy And Exercize

Fibro zaps your energy but your doctor tells you that more exercise will ease the pain, how do you move more if you just don't have the energy?

I find that doctors don't always know your body "fibro language". So I listen to my body. If I have the energy to do something then I do it. I still have to watch that I don't over do it as that can set me back 1- 3 bad days from overdrive. I also find the pain killers that work for you providing it doesn't clash with other meds can help as well as shutting ur body down. Take a nap for as long as u can. I find my muscles relax and I can go again. I have started Banting for 5 months now and my energy levels are much higher. Not so tired most days. Hope this helps some. Take care and bunny hugs to all.

Being a curvy girl, whenever I go to GP, my weight always mentioned. You need to exercise more she says, but I in so much pain say I. It's just one big vicious circle I wish I could get out of!!! 🐰

Exercise thats a joke, the most exercise i do is the housework and even that is painful, and fatiguing.
I understand the logic in exercise, and that is so our limbs do not become weak and waste away,but when the drs mention exercise they mean to walk and keep walking or to attend a gym. Erm not possible, having multiple conditions one aggravates the other. So its a no win situation.
Even after a little bit of house work i find having to go back to bed either late morning or in the afternoon for two hours.

I'm with Beeanz....even light stretching is not always possible. I have a yoga routine that is basically just stretching, and I can do that....sometimes! There are times when I hurt to badly to lift my arms or move at all. I've even tried slow movement in the pool and it still hurts. I get so frustrated, because I'm gaining weight and I can't just jump on the treadmill to walk 2 miles a day like I used to. ☚ī¸
