Are there any exercises that I can do even, if I suffer from migraines?

I am trying to find some exercises, that if I do them, will help me in my weight loss journey, but not aggravate migraines I have, or trigger seizures, since I also have a seizure disorder, since the age of 4 days. I know, there is walking, but there is only so much of that you can do, before you look for a change. I would appreciate some kind guidance.

  • i do not have exercise info
    but
    i used to have migraines alot
    took LAKE dyes out of my childs diet, and mine, and WOW my migraines went away
    for a test, a few days before my period, i ate lots of stuff with red 40, yellow 5 and blue 1 (artificial food dyes)
    and i had three day migraine

    hope this helps, as i have no exercise info, if not you, maybe another migraine suffer will be helped by taking lake dyes out of their food diet

  • Ask your doctor what you could do. Have you tried swimming or water aerobics? Pilates or yoga?

  • es, the simplest gest yoga poses sure!! i even did them when pregnant! look some up online and print out and just copy them -- yoga relives stress, opens circulation, improves balance and posture... i used to instruct for four years!

  • For this question, my best answer would be to consult your doctor, especially if you have medical problems (seizures, migraines, etc.).
