VIDEO: Exercise and FM/CFS - Part 1

  [ 3 votes ]   [ 1 Comment ]
By Richard Podell, MD • www.ProHealth.com • May 20, 2016


Exercise is the BEST REMEDY - but only if you do it not too much, not too little, but JUST RIGHT!

If you have Fibromyalgia (FM) or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) - you know it’s not easy to do just right.

This post by Dr. Richard Podell is part of a three-part video series focusing on when and how to exercise. Our expert in the video, is Kim Jones, RN, PhD associate professor at the School of Nursing of the Oregon Health and Science University.
Dr. Jones is one of the world’s leading experts on Fibromyalgia. She has published more than 50 research papers and worked closely on FM research with Robert Bennett, M.D., former chairman of the division of arthritis and rheumatology at the affiliated medical school. Dr. Jones also serves as President of the Fibromyalgia Information Foundation. Although Dr. Jones’ main focus is on Fibromyalgia, patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome should also benefit from her advice.



Stay tuned:  we'll post Part 2 of this series next Friday.


Richard Podell, M.D., MPH is a graduate of Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Public Health. He has been treating patients with ME-CFS and Fibromyalgia for more than 20 years. A clinical professor at New Jersey's Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Dr. Podell see patients at his Summit, NJ and Somerset, NJ offices. His website is www.DrPodell.org.

Some good, practical advice which I follow.

I disagreee strongly that poor balance in Fm is caused by deconditioning. When I came down with FM I was very fit and regularly exercised and ran for fitness.
After I was diagnosed with FM my balance was so bad I tripped and fell regularly. While deconditioning is a problem when we do not exercise regularly it is definitely not the cause of loss of balance in everyone.

It is too easy to relate these problems to simple behavioural deficits.

Equally the muscle twitching is not related to deconditioning per se. There is considerable neuro-vascular change which accounts for these symptoms. These are clearly independent of deconditioning.

While deconditioning worsens these symptoms, similarly we can say that vitamin D deficiency can account for these problems too.

Yes it is very important in both FM and CFS to exercise regularly, I have no doubt about that. Regular exercise does avoid deconditioning and deconditioning will worsen symptoms but be careful about the attribution of symptom cause.
