The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of self directed exercise on pain and function reported in patients with Fibromyalgia both in the short term and long term. Previous studies have shown that patients with fibromyalgia respond better to a single session of self directed exercise compared to prescriptive exercise. To the investigator's knowledge, no studies have examined the impact on pain and function after multiple sessions of self directed exercise in this patient population.
This study hoes to be a case series exploring the effects of self directed exercise on participants with fibromyalgia. Participants will be encouraged to exercise 8-12 times in a 4 week time frame at a self selected pace and intensity on a stationary bicycle. Outcome measures such as the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire, SF-36 and Numeric Pain Rating Scale will be used prior to study participation as well as 4 and 8 weeks following the start of participation.
