Everything I've read on fibro says to excercise but how can I excercise when I'm in so much pain that I can't even get out of my chair? When I'm having a good day I walk my dog for about 20 minutes two to three times a day but that is a very easy walk. Somedays I can't even handle that and have my neighbor walk my dog. If I do feel good enough and go walk on the treadmill I am in so much pain and am so fatigued the next day that I can't get out of bed. It seems that everytime I over extend myself-even going out for a few hours doing nothing hard(I went and saw a play and sat in a strange chair and it triggered this very painful episode). I went on a date a couple of weeks ago and we just went to dinner then came home and watched a movie and the next day I couldn't get out of bed. I had to cancel my date for the next day. I can never commit to anything because I never know if I'm going to wake up well the next day or if I'm gonna be sick. Noone wants to make any plans with me because I flake out all the time and of course people who don't have fibro don't understand. I'm 34 and my body feels like I'm 90. It's very hard for me to have these limitations.
