I haven't been willing to accept I have fybromyalgia even though a lot of my family members have fybromyalgia including two of my children. My dad drilled it into my head for years it was a fake illness although I live it and see my kids suffer and know it's not. I have all of the symptoms. My neck hurts the most, then my back and then randomness body parts will cause so much serious pain I insist the x eat to see if bones are broken which of course they are not. I use to have severe stiffness until I started going to the gym 3-4 days a week for an hour to an hour and half at a time. I weight train and do cardio. I started out only being able to lift 5 pounds on my arms and legs and now I'm up to 40. I could only do one minute of cardio on the bikes and now I'm up to ten minutes at a level one instead of zero. Some days I feel like every part of my is broken and going to gym can at times leave me in a lot of pain especially in my neck but overall I feel way happier than I use to. It also gives me energy. Before the fatigue was so debilitating I would be in bed most days and on certain days I couldn't even walk up the stairs. Does anyone else use exercise to treat fybromyalgia? Does it help you? Does it hurt your neck a lot?
