Q. Hello friends, my uncle suffers from fibromyalgia and arthritis in his upper shoulder and hand. Hello friends, my uncle suffers from fibromyalgia and arthritis in his upper shoulder and hand...I told him he needs to exercise. Can some give me a list or a website with a couple of general exercises that includes a diagram (preferred)

A. Hello Daron, Eat only when hungry and not more than thrice a day. Include plenty of uncooked vegetables and fruits in each meal, preferably 50%. Chew each morsel at least 32 times to activate your body to generate signals of hunger/fullness. Obey these signals. Take light exercises and brisk walks regularly preferably twice a day. U will achieve what u have not even dreamt and that too in a reasonable time. Do not be in a hurry. Have him see a doctor, first, and then someone doing psy rehab. I can think of lots of good exercises for healthy people, but it seems like your uncle needs medical attention.
