Hi, I have been diagnosed with RA for a year. At first, I had a lot of problems with my right hand and wrist but I got treatment early (cocktail of steroids, methotrexate and another DMARD which I won't attempt to spell). Now off steroid but continue with the others. I have some bad days but I guess my RA at the moment is quite well managed. It's the unpredictable side of it, some days it's like nothing is wrong, then you can wake up the next and it's like - hmm my wrist is really sore and stiff. I struggle with that but am starting to accept it's part of my life now. I missed my exercise for quite a while but have now got back into it. I am trying to jog again but sometimes my left knee is very un co-operative! Probably not the brightest move on my part but I am stubborn. I know swimming is good but I have fear of putting my head under water - Lol! Has anyone tried Pilates, is this beneficial??
