The only thing I have found that works for me is riding an exercise bike. I can't walk more than a couple minutes or do much upper body anything because of my back. but I can ride my bike. Just 5 minutes a couple times a week.

I have osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia and everyday is a bad day....some days I can overlook the pain and do some housework, but most days, I am in too much pain. I have gained 100lbs since I have been in this pain. I want to get rid of this extra person that I am carrying around b/c I am sure that it makes my pain worse.

The brains of fibromyalgia patients show structural and behavioral differences from those of healthy individuals, but it is unclear whether the brain anomalies cause fibromyalgia symptoms or are the product of an unknown underlying common cause. Some research suggests that these brain anomalies may be the result of childhood stress, or prolonged or severe stress.

I feel for you. The spells are terrible. I know just how you feel. Forcing myself to work every morning is all I have in me some days.

I also have gained weight and am very upset by the "it's in your head" "your not in pain, you think your in pain" theory.
