I have had severe FM & CFS since I was 10. Just finished my Doctorate last year in Piano Performance and then had a really bad flare in October. Have not been able to play piano since then. My blood pressure is high and so is my blood sugar. My doctor has me on strict diet & exercise. However, I walked 2 miles last night with my husband and it was one of the most gruelling 45 minutes of my life. Near the end I could not even walk straight...my balance was completly off...felt like I was walking on the ocean. Today I am still feeling the effects and had to end up taking some motion sickness meds to help. I am at work but not feeling well...hurting from the walking. I feel my doctor does not understand...he keeps saying exercise more and that will help me sleep better but I am in total pain just from the walking. Can anyone help? I thought I would literally pass out, throw up or something last night the exercise was so bad!!!
