Will exercise worsen or help my Fibromyalgia?

Published: August 24, 2013

Will a lot of movement worsen my fibromyalgia or help it? Because I'm a prospective college student and am worried about all the walking around I will have to do on campus.


Exercise is critical to maintaining conditioning in fibromyalgia. As long as you do not feel wiped out the next day, it is good for you. If you do feel wiped out the next day, take it easy for 2-3 days, then cut back a bit to a comfortable level, but keep up the walking.
