I've found this site invaluable for help and support, so many thanks to you all.
My hubby is 61 years old and before RA hit him early this year, he was extremely strong, fit and healthy.
Now he's lost so much body tone and his arms are quite wasted. He's putting weight on now, but onto his belly not his arms as he's not exercising at all.
I've read snippets out from this site about the benefits of exercise despite a certain level of pain, but hubby just won't as he says it's so painful afterwards. Far be it from me to push him about this, as I could be exacerbating his RA.
i just think it's a case of use it or lose it, but I don't really know.
Would welcome any pearls of wisdom!!
Thank you, Sue x
