I do not have FM but I have learned a little about it in my studies. There is good research showing that regular moderate-intensity exercise is a huge part of successfully managing FM. This includes aerobic conditioning and strengthening. I know this sounds like it may be totally out of the question for some of you, but it really is doable! Having someone to help manage the journey and of course going slow and being patient with yourself are imperative.
Tai Ch has been shown to be helpful too..
