Hi Emmy, I am a 51 year old male with Forbromyalgia and have also tried QiQong and other alternative therapies. Like you I have also found that both QiQong and Tai Chi cause me pain for a week or so after workout. My doctor has advised that I discontinue the exercises. I have tried Tai Chi several times and each time I have been in pain. Unfortunately this can be disheartening and disappointing but if it hurts you need to stop. I have found that Reiki and self-hypnosis are somewhat beneficial in that they are relaxing. I wish you the best of luck in coping with this illness.

Sincerely,
Frank

Hi Emmy

I'm new to this forum and I know that this is a late reply but maybe I can help you with your problem.

I'm 24 with Fibromylagia and I have been training in tai chi and chi gong.
I think that the reason why you are experiencing pain is because of 2 reasons:

1. You are not relaxed when you exercise making the pain worse.
2. In the beginning the pain may be worse because you have a chi blockage that the exercises are trying to unblock
3. you have to breath properly otherwise your body will not relax and it will not get enough oxygen.

I don't want to go too much into the technical details.
But if it really hurts then rather not hurt yourself and find an exercise that your body can handle.

Wishing you all the best

Regards

Ryan
