Thanks for the advice. You are right about finding a balance and walking while you can, then sitting for awhile, stretching and moving about when possible and making your area comfortable. I started taking a cushion into church and that helps a lot.
I have Birkenstocks. A special Italian anniversay editition. woo woo. I also have clarks, sketchers running shoes and flats, Born, Sofft, Aeresols . . . all bought recently. None of them keep my feet from hurting, but by changing shoes frequently, I can keep ahead of it - except when walking a lot. (A lot depends upon the day and can be 20 minutes or a few hours).
It is a difficult balance to find.
Do you suffer from anything else along with the fibro? Have you been checked for eg...arthritis? etc?
It's not an easy task trying to find that balance, is it. My biggest lesson I have learned is to take it one day at a time. Some days I can do more and some days less. Some days I have more pain than others. I try to fit in gentle stretching exercises and to keep moving. I get fatigued every few hour intervals so I will take a couple rest periods during the day where I put my whole body up on the couch and take a nap or just close my eyes for awhile and shut off.
Just this last Sunday I had to take it easy all day. The week was busy and I know I over did it.
