I'm a 75 year old man and this is my first post. I've had RA for three years and been treating myself with paracetamol 1000mgs daily. All was going well until two weeks ago when I began having regular flare-ups. I'm just wondering, should one continue exercising during flare-ups or give it a rest until they've disappeared? I am under a consultant but am not due to see him for 3 months.
