I may have fibromyalgia or EDS, haven't gotten a proper diagnosis yet. My question is, does anyone else experience pain and/or muscle cramps when they do almost anything more strenuous than walking from around your house? I am not even talking exercise here, just more bending, lifting or squatting for just a few minutes at a time. If I actually go for a 15 minute walk, I can hardly walk the next day. My hips and hip flexors end up in a lot of pain, sometimes so bad I can hardly walk the next day. I just don't know what I am capable of or what to expect anymore.

      At times I have burning leg muscles & have had to rely on a wheelchair when leaving the house. I’m luckily much stronger now yet at times I still have burning muscles especially standing. I get through by seeking answers listening to my body and remembering it hasn’t always been this way, nor will it always remain.

      Yes. It’s very difficult, the easiest task becomes the thing that puts you in bed for the next 2 days. It’s hard to know what you are and aren’t able to do and it’s even harder to explain it to others
