I have fibromyalgia and I find working out helps me a lot. I am urgently lifting weights 5 days a week and insanity 6 days a week. I also walk my dog twice a day. If I take a break from working out the pains still there but working out is good for my mental health so I do it. I also take a 2 hour dance class once a week and a limber class as well. My husband says I overdo it but I love it and it helps me.
