The pain is sometimes so intense that you don’t feel like moving. Many tend to avoid exercising and moving to avoid pain. On the contrary, being inactive can worsen fibromyalgia pain in the long run. Inactivity leads to lack of energy, weakened and stiffened muscles. It is important to keep yourself moderately mobile to maintain strong and flexible muscles and improve blood circulation. Consult a fitness trainer about specific exercises for fibromyalgia patients and do them regularly. Start simple by walking or stretching for a couple of minutes – it takes time to build up a rhythm.
