    exercising with chronic illness

    I ahve chronic shingles on my scalp aside from diabetes and at times, like right now my head hurts too much to think about exercise. How do you motivate yurself to do at least a few minutes worth of exercise when you hurt from illness and not injury?

    I'd worry more about preventing / reducing your chronic illness than working out right now. Post your complaints in the general health forum and go to the diet forum to get a clean diet, if you don't have that already.

    I don't think it's a good idea to work out when you're ill.

    How often is this a problem?
    The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...
