I am a 48 year old woman and have fibromyalgia, and a bad lower back

Cases of fibromyalgia are strongly associated with
severe nutrient imbalances and deficiencies.
I am 48 and have fibromyalgia, and a bad lower back, and the vertebrae in my neck have bone spurs and there is degeneration that causes nerve pain down one arm. I am not an exercise person - I DON'T run - always hated it, but have walked a lot. Not recently though (last 2 yrs).

My lower back gave out recently (muscular) I couldn't walk for 2 weeks. I know I really need to build up my core muscles to strengthen my lower back - tummy muscles especially. I need to loose weight too - I'm tall but carry weight around my mid section. I went for a gentle walk yesterday but as a result I am so sore all over - especially my thighs, hips - everywhere basically. Like I have been hit with a base ball bat all over my body - mostly to touch.

So what I have started doing on weekends is going to the XXXX pool - sitting in the hot spa with jets on my back and thighs then I do the aqua jogging with a belt. I figured out today that maybe I should be bringing my knees up to my tummy. when I did this I could feel my tummy muscles working. At times I could feel myself going forward so I do need to straighten up. I'm not sure what to do with my arms but will try what you have suggested, and I guess I am using my feet like paddles.



I am not sore after aqua jogging!! - and I feel so good!? Unusual for me after exercise. But it worries me that you say my joints still need the compression or weight of walking to build bone and muscle strength - cause my body does not like it. I cant believe how sore I get. I take glucosamine.

I just wondered if you might have some advice or suggestions? It would be very much appreciated.

Gary:
You are doing all the right things with regards to exercise; but this will not deal with the underlying causes of your fibromyalgia and joint degeneration.  

Cases of fibromyalgia are strongly associated with severe nutrient imbalances and deficiencies, such as portrayed in the image from a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA).  

Joint degeneration, joint spurs and back pain are associated with excess calcium deposition into soft tissues.  The example in the image shows quite low calcium but an excess in relation to most other minerals, such as magnesium and sodium.  This will drive the process of decalcification of the bones and calcifying of soft tissues, including the joints and even the arteries.  Please follow the links below to read my other articles about the HTMA and calcium.

The obvious next step is to complete a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis to help identify the underlying causes of your health issues.
