Out of the mist
I find exercises especially walking really helps, however I do have to push something when I walk, too painful otherwise. I used to have a very elderly neighbour who did yoga and found it was very gentle exercise and great for older people, you only do what you can manage and nothing too extreme so why don't you give it a try? You can always pack it in if its not for you. X
It's amazing what difference using a walker or pushing something really makes. I can walk miles pushing my trolley but it's painful walking to the end of the street without it. I had a four wheel push along shopping trolley but I kept overloading it and the cheap plastic wheels just won't take much weight so pretty useless for me. I use an old baby buggy that I bought very cheaply from the charity shop and it's great, takes all my heavy cat food and milk with ease and because you are pushing it you don't feel the weight unless you have to go uphill of course. I can't carry anything not even a handbag cos it sets the headaches off so I use my trolley to get around, putting everything I need on it, I get some funny looks off people who think I've lost my baby, but once it's filled with heavy bags then they start to look enviously at me while they are struggling to carry their own heavy shopping bags. Not so daft after all lol x
the more you walk, the more your able too. You can start just in the driveway and you will feel like increasing distance each time.
If ur able to do 15 min walks twice a day that was helpful for me.
