When our body is in motion, our muscle cells are more active. Our breathing rate increases to increase the supply of air to the lungs, so that more oxygen can be absorbed. Inside the lungs, air is replaced more quickly so that oxygen content is kept high, and fresh oxygen runs thru our blood supply. A body in motion tends to stay in motion!
A day or two living pain free multiplied my productivity by 90%. Mentally, I could focus with no distractions. How tiring it is to fight pain! What a difference the right medications can make!

Did you know that what you hear has a powerful affect on how you feel, even if your not listening? Think of music and sound as real energy that can be directed and controlled to achieve your desired outcome. Notes, (energy) has the power to shatter glass, and can affect the way you internal organs function. You know that some music helps you concentrate and other music would never let you concentrate.
My heart goes out to you if you are here to read about Fibromyalgia for yourself. Having spent time in support groups, there are still people who are not going to a fibromyalgia doctor.
