Like many of you I'm spending most of my time sitting or lying about. As a result I'm accumulating assorted secondary aches and pains plus stiffness all over. In the good old days a few sessions of tai chi would soon have fixed that. These days, alas, all that tai chi does is a) cause a faint and b) trigger PEM. So looking for alternatives. Dimly recall a study (sorry, link got lost) saying the researchers could trigger PEM in ME patients with just a simple stretch of a specific kind. So I'm worried that by inventing my own stretches (no physical therapists of any kind available where I live) I could inadvertently trigger PEM. In fact I suspect that could be happening already because while I can usually pinpoint what sent me into PEM, occasionally there just seems to be no reason at all, not physical, cognitive or emotional, nor allergy or infection, etc. etc. So maybe it was that biiig looong stretch that felt so good at the time ? Does anyone know of a good resource of suitable - and safe - “exercises” like range of motion or stretches, preferably with pictures and able to be done in bed? Just to be double-clear: I don't have any illusion about exercising the ME away, just want to limber up a little to shake out some of those secondary aches and pains.
