I have started a walking program recently. A friend and I walk 3 times a week on our lunch hour about 8 blocks. The doctor told me exercising is good for Fibro patients. What I realize is that I don't really think he meant walking. after walking I become easily winded, feel breathless and my legs feel like blocks of concrete. My back aches and every part of me feels like it is spiraling out of control, all while I am working at my desk trying to keep a happy face on. what types of exercise does everyone find helpful that would cause a limited amount of backlash. It's hard enough dealing with regular body aches of exercising but the fibro increases the painful feeling by 100.
