Joint stiffnness after exercise


I suffer from joint pain and stiffness but no dx yet. Getting by on oral prednisolone until I have a rheumy appointment.

I try to workout to to the extend I can and it feels good. But later in the day I feel my joints getting a bit stiff.

Have any one had the same experience? Not sure if I am overdoing it and need to scale back a bit

I think if it's causing you inflammation afterwards then you are doing a little too much, try reducing the session a bit and see how u get on, you could try to stick with exercises that are non impact such as the bike or cross trainer or swim so you can limit the impact on your joints.


Thanks for your reply. I will try to reduce it bit to begin with. If that isn't enough I will to to go for more low impact
