I also have fibro and I agree with everything RavelGirly said. The more you can move, the more in-control your pain will be. Do as much as you can, when you can.
I exercise about six days a week. I swim and I do low-impact dancing (Latin, with a partner). I also do a cardio/weight workout of my own design (15 minutes treadmill, 1 weight circuit alternating arms and legs, 15 minutes exercise bike, another weight circuit) and occasionally do Zumba.
Alternating high and low impact seems to help. I try not to do high-impact workouts back-to-back or to do too many long workouts.
