I'm 26, I've just started changing my food intake to try to lose 44lbs to reach my goal weight and be healthier.... my problem with gaining weight has been the loss of mobility due to having worsening Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Dysautonomia and idiopathic Angioedema (like that anaphylactic shock people who're allergic to peanuts get, but mine is triggered by heat and stress!).... basically my joints all dislocate and I am hyper flexible (in a bad way)... I'm exercise intolerant due to the blood pressure issues involved in the dysautonomia, and getting too hot makes my face swell like a baboon's bum!!! I walk v small distances with crutches due to the EDS. I have chronic pain and my joints are all falling to bits..
I'm totally stuck as to how to get some exercise into my regime :( I've had several flummoxed physios (one of whom broke me!) and I'm waiting to see an expert, which may be a while.... I did do yoga but I overstretch and it's not good for my ligaments apparently..... (!!!!!!)
Should I just stop trying?! I need something really light ...but not over stretchy either.... swimming knocks my left hip out of socket.... GAH?!!
Thanks for reading, I totally understand if no one can think of anything hehe.
