For years I have always been active, but within the last 3 years I have noticed that my activity levels have gone down and I have been suffering with chronic pain. Finally after going to many dr’s I was diagnosed last summer with Fibromyalgia. I was told that it is a condition that is best explained as rheumatoid arthritis of the muscles and ligaments.
The pain I live with is daily and some days worse than others depending on weather and how much I have done the day before. I have gained weight over the past few years due to my activity levels dropping, but I am determined to try and get rid of this 20lbs that keeps following me around. Any suggestions as to what would be the best approach for me? Also I have thougth about going on a detox program because toxins in the body can be linked to pain. What kind of detox program do you feel would be safe? Thank you and I am so happy to be a part of urban moms.
