I know that you all have heard it before - exercise and you'll feel better - get better. How do you explain to someone who has never HAD FM how you feel? I tried walking four blocks the other day and was at the point of tears upon returning home because my back, hips, and legs hurt SO badly. I know my husband has only the best of intentions for me, and I know he loves me - I just need him to understand why exercise isn't the solution and could possibly even make it worse. If you can help me find the words, I would appreciate it. Would you share your experiences in this area?
