I am 68 and my fibro is severe. I would describe my activity level about average. My dr wants me to start walking again.😳
I wish my activity level was average. Anyway, the last week has been uber pain, so I didn't do much at all. But before that my friend and I wanted to check out silver sneakers and we made it to the gym 3 times in 2 weeks. A trainer showed us strength building exercises and we ride the exercise bikes for 5 minutes before and 5 minutes after. I have an easy yoga routine for fibromyalgia off of You Tube that I do every day and that definitely helps. I feel better after doing that. Can't seem to get myself to walk like I should.
I try to exercise as much as can like walking. Inside biking. Lately tho my back acting up again and dr wants another mri before any more lumbar shots
I am not over 60 but I do understand this. I have to start walking more as well. I find it is helpful to move a bit but overdoing it is harmful as well. We tend to have exercise intolerance and too much is horrid as well as too little. Finding the middle ground for ourselves can be trying but it is most likely worth it. Gentle hugs
It helps and hurts. There is a balance for me that sometimes i forget about. I can walk a bit and it can make me feel happy and then i can walk or stretch the next day and flare me for a week. Gentle hugs. I agree that moving as much as you can tolerate is. Better than not.
