Working on Being Pain Free

Sunday, September 08, 2013

I may take just tylenol. I have Barrett's esophagus so I must watch acid reflux. I am attempting to work on being pain free through proper nutrition, limited meds, and exercise.

I must schedule exercise each day. I try to do varied exercise. I let my trainer push me for strength. I do not want to traumatize my RA joints. I like the pool on painful days. I like cycling on spin bikes. I can do Body Combat and Zumba as well.

My home spin bike is my goto item for my knee. I can get relief in about 15 minutes using the bike.

    I am glad you are able to find ways to exercise in spite of your pain and limitations. I love Zumba too :) The elliptical is my go to exercise machine at home. Ironically, it was because of my bad knees and it being painful to walk on them that drove me to get this no impact alternative -its a great whole body workout!
    Keep up the great work!

    Good plan. I have acid reflux and don't like it but it seems like the 'rules' don't fit for me. If I don't eat something before bed then it bothers me all night. Does that make sense? lol I think I may need to exchange my recumbent bike for a more standard upright bike for my hips. Keep up the good work!
