Karyn - I would be inclined to stop the exercises at this point and talk with your Dr! Ask for a referral to a Physiotherapist who specializes with your sort of problem. That way you will be properly assessed and get only the exercises which will help and NOT do any harm. Just make sure that any reports and any x-rays you have, take with you to help the Physiotherapist.

Good luck,
Kris

Have you tried chair exercises? I also suffer from mixed connective tissue disease, and my joints and muscles are often tender and swollen. The area most affected, and most painful, is my lower back. I'm able to get on the floor and work on my core on some days, but those tender days, I have to sit in a chair to do it. Spark has a 12 minute seated core workout video you can try. There's a Chair Exercise team that has lots of exercises you can do while seated, which is great for those days when you can't do your normal workout. Here's the link if you're interested.

Hey there,
In 1995 I had back surgery where they ended up taking 2 inches of bone out of my tail bone. That never caused me any problem until now. (Imagine that...lol) This past year, I took chemotherapy for 2 months. I didn't believe it, but it did actually zap my muscles! Every time I work my abdomen and lower back, my lower back really hurts a day or two afterwards. However, there are times when it hurts several days afterward. In the past, I NEVER had this problem. I know I'm older now, but I wasn't expecting this. I don't know if it's arthritis from the surgery or, God forbid, Fibromyalgia. I don't have a history of fibromyalgia in my family, but I know many folks who have it. It scares me, and I am not sure how far I should take my working out. I assume that if I continue to strengthen my abdomen and back (upper and lower), the problem will work itself out. When I work out, it feels sooooooo good, so I'm not sure what to do. Any thoughts?

Karyn
