MS, Exercise, Fatigue and Pain

So I'm a pretty chubby guy. I've been aware of it and I'm trying to take better care of myself. I'm watching what I eat and making sure I'm walking every day. Over the last 9 months I lost 15 pounds, which I'm aware isn't a lot, but for me it's something. I want to get stronger, and I want to be better, but working out for extended periods of time results in literal headache, and I'm not sure how to combat this. I've been splitting my exercises into really small chunks with some breaks in between, but it still results in pain. I guess what I'm trying to get insight into is whether anybody else finds themselves in pain doing workouts or if they've managed to build up some endurance. I want to be able to work out like anybody else, but I have to really look into modified versions of exercises that are done as well in shorter time. Pain has been a recurring problem, particularly when I just tried to go at the pace I used to before developing MS. Are there people with MS out there making serious gains? Are there bodybuilders with MS??
