How do you drop weight/exercise
I see a lot of people on this forum who are in pain and need help.
The issue of weight seems to be a much bigger issue for us guys than for the women, but I am wondering how do you, or do you take off the weight.
I gained 40 pounds in 3 months from Lyrica a few years ago and haven't taken it off. All Dr's are saying well get that off you will be better, I agree, but can't even do the simplest yoga, walking as you all know hurts so bad (heck even a trip to the store and pushing the cart 100 feet puts me almost in tears)
Taking medicine and then trying to exercise seemed like a good idea until you start to do anything physical and the pain gets so bad.
I've tried Sardo's books, yoga, stretching, watching what I eat, etc.
There is a program under a Docs supervision which is a combination of medicine and diet, but of course it's not covered by my insurance. Is this something to talk to PCP about. I hate to say is there ANOTHER pill I can get to lose weight (but it was a pill which caused me to gain it, AND quite funny how on the side effects list weight gain was at the bottom and now has move it's way up google Lyrica and weight gain, its awful what that does.). I would exercise, but can't take the pain.
