Can someone share their exercise protocol? I had gotten to the place where I walked long distances almost every day, then fibromyalgia hit. I’m having a hard time incorporating any exercise and I know it is important to my long-term health and strength. My legs go wobbly when I walk more than 15 minutes or so. HELP!

      I take an Aleve before walking

      This was recommended to me by my cardiologist for POTS so this may not work for you but it doesn’t anger my FM, but exercise laying/sitting down. I was recommended to use a rowing machine and given resistance bands by the PT (some I set up like a rowing machine/sit up contraption). One thing I’ve found great is laying on the floor and pulling the band down with my foot (kind of like a walking motion) so it doesn’t “neglect” my leg muscles but I can’t fall over.

      Some restorative yoga stretching and walking around to grocery shop is about all I can manage, myself. Every time I try to do much more, I pay dearly for. 🤦🏼‍♀️ I went out for a 9 hour day to attend a memorial service & reception for my aunt and was incapacitated for a week. 😩😣

        @Lunas_Mom I’m so sorry. That’s a rough price to pay.
