It is very common that exercise will lead to increased pain especially early on in the treatment of JPFS. Some of this pain is from your muscles being out of shape. The other pain is a result of fibromyalgia. It is important to start slow with exercise and to gradually build up to at least thirty minutes, three to five times a week. The most important part of exercise is to do it regularly. This means that exercising daily, even if it is for a short time, is very helpful in JPFS. Forming a habit of exercise and making it a part of your lifestyle is extremely important to your recovery and to prevent future flare-ups.
