Wow, I am late in responding (did I mention that I am forgetful too
). Anyway...every once in awhile I do some circuit training at home and I recently joined a gym to add in strength training (boy does that hurt), but I don't really find that one form of exercise is easier on the pain vs another. Even walking for an extended amount of time will result in increased pain for a day or two.
I have thought about getting a foam roller to see if that will help. I try to do some self massage with a tennis ball which gives me some temporary relief, but it's nothing long term. It's kind of like a hot shower...feels better while I'm in there, but as soon as my body cools back up it goes back to its same old self.
Thanks for responding!
