Can anyone recommend an exercise for those that have anemia? I'm on interferon (sp?) therapy and one of the bad side effect is anemia. I feel lightheaded and winded sometimes. I hate having something interfering with my goals.

    Charmain, this is a powerful drug you are on. Is it making you sick. I dont know what to tell you about exercise. My son was on this drug and it just about wiped him out. If you have the energy i would just try maybe to walk some. It will depend on how strong you are. This made him very weak. Do you give your self shots. this is what he did, and he was very sick from this drug. He said never again. Wishing you the best and please take care.

    As much as I hate Pilates - I would encourage you to try this form of exercise. As they done on the floor laying flat. Also I want to encourage you to do strength training - this helps so many things in the body. Jean emoticon

    the only thing I can think of is exercise. Try to get your heart pumping and see if that helps. But please be careful! don't ride your bike around town because I worry that you might get dizzy and fall. That would not be good. But try a dance video at home.
