riding with fibroalgia
Does anyone ride with fibromyalgia? Does riding make things for you worse or better? My daughter rides and I was thinking about riding also.If you do ride with fibromyalgia does this make you feel better or worse? Please respond.

I have fibro. It (for me) is all about figuring out what triggers your flair ups.. for me it was hard work with poor rest. I finally figured out when I work or play hard physically, I had to rest really well afterward. Maybe rest a few hours or a day or so of little physical work.

I ride every Saturday that I can, I trail ride and usually ride 10-20 miles in the mountains of North Georgia. For me personally--I MUST RIDE, I MUST BE IN THE WOODS!!! When I ride hard, I must rest well that night and the next day I will take a nap.

Fibro effects everyone different, so my cure might not be your!

Good luck...
