Can Exercise Speed Up/help Healing Time?

I think my biggest issue with exercise is that even without it I am fatigued a lot of the time.

I don't exercise to lose weight (I don't have any to lose), but I do just enough to build muscle tone and keep cardio fitness up a bit. Because I lost so much weight so quickly before I went gluten-free, my muscle tone was shot. Now I have to do physical therapy 3 times a week to get my knees working correctly again. I know you are tired and feeling blah, but even a 10 minute walk outside should make you feel a little better. The warmer weather and sunshine is good for the spirit too! Good luck to you!

Even if it's a short walk, or just pulling weeds or whatever. Do it.
Your body is meant to move. Helps me in so many ways.
Yes, it's hard. But just start doing anything to build a habit if movement. Don't go overboard - just light stuff.

But I don't know if exercise would have any effect at all, anyhow! It's good to exercise, but I think it's up to you. YMMV, as they say!
