Hi all, I have always been physically active - swimming, running and cycling and participated in long distance running and triathlon events. That obviously was put on hold when the lupus reared it's ugly head. Since being on Hydroxy I have gradually improved and am now exercising regularly without difficulty. In fact my ability to re-engage with sport is one of the measures the consultant is using to monitor my response to treatment. I decided to go to a boot camp, which was great fun. I didn't push myself too much and was pleased to be able to do all the exercises. Since then I have been experiencing significant muscle pain (to be expected) and fatigue (to be expected), but the brain fog has returned, my throat is sore, I have had my first bout of skin rashes in months and my feet and hands are swollen. It feels like one of the worst flares since before diagnosis. Any thoughts? Has the exercise triggered a flare?
