I have been getting a little more active this summer as a fibromyalgia sufferer. No matter what I am ALWAYS sore the day after or even the day I do anything physical. For example, I walked a lot yesterday at a amusement park and now my hip hurts so bad I can barely stand. Another example, I did some weed wacking for a friend. My wrist hurt so intensely I wanted to cry. But I finished the work because I was manic and I'm ocd. And my bipolar ocd does make me push myself even though it hurts. My question to other fibro friends is this: if I were to work out regularly would I still be in pain when I push myself to do anything physical? Is there a point where I can work out and strengthen my body to where it won't hurt anymore? And yes, I get called a sissy A LOT and it PISSES me off.View Thread
