Exercise and meds, advice please.

Postby Lizee » Thu May 01, 2014 4:14 pm

Hi there,

I've been told that gentle exercise helps with the symptoms of fibromyalgia. Does anyone use any specific stretches or type of exercise that won't leave me unable to move.

Also wondering if anyone else has been prescribed prosac to help manage the symptoms. I can't use any analgesia as I have chronic migraines so gp suggested this today.

Any help would be so much appreciated.

I would suggest for you to be refered to a physiotherapist. They can work out an exercise plan and stretches.

Prozac (fluoxitine) is a commen medication for fibro which may help some and not others. Theres a search bar up the top of the page which will throw up many topics on prozac.
