I suffer from pain when placing unweighted bar less than 1 kg (Specific for ladies) on my back and doing squats like routines in body pump class due to the reduced range of motion of my left shoulder/arm and i feel very uncomfortable after dropping it off. I also have wrist joint pain bilaterally also affecting my performance in several exercises. I am taking pills by my doctor but its not helping. I feel better when i go for a yoga class. So i would like to know how can i train with all these symptoms. I stopped training for a whole year due to pain that doctors couldnt diagnose until recently. I am in recovery/rehabilitation phase. If anyone can help with any information to help me go through this, ill be grateful.
making specific recommendations without having seen you in person is difficult. However, there are a few generic points I can make.
It is certainly smart of you to stop doing things that hurt. Taking a yoga class that makes you feel better is a great first step. Another for of exercise to explore is any form of aquatic training. Since you mention shoulder ROM problems, it could be water aerobics rather than swimming.
I would also suggest that you have your shoulder checked out. It may be a problem that has nothing to do with FM but is not properly followed up on because “it’s FM”. A physical therapist should be able to identify any other underlying issue. And a PT may also be able to assist you with other exercises.
I hope you will be better soon.
