  • I'm afraid the stiffness and aches are part of the picture. Hopefully they don't last long?

  • Thank you x

  • Getting stiff when sitting and sleeping is quite normal so don't worry but do tell your RA doc he might be able to recommend something but it is quite normal to have a few min's of stiffness before you can move as usual after resting x

  • Thank you at least I know other people feel the same cx

  • All part of the RA, the oh so slow walk to the bathroom in the morning.

  • Hello Tillie, you have a horrible disease bless you, so once in a while you're entitled to a moan!! Aches and pains are par for the course, keep yourself as active as you can, swimming is good. Keep on the move, and all the best, Sue xx

  • Thanks sue I try to swim 3 times a week and I walk a lot try not to drive so I get as much exercise as I can hope you are ok x
