Im Nicky, 30 years old from Birmingham. Had rheumatoid arthritis for about two years but have had swelling joints for nearly a year n on medication Since may. (Methatraxate and daily steroids) haven't been able to go to the gym. No strength in wrists/hands, swelling on foot and knee aswell! So annoying.
I'm starting swimming lessons tomorrow as I like the water but don't really know how to swim lengths as an actual workout, I've heard swimming is good for the joints. So I'm going to start swimming as my excerise. Has anyone else done this or found it helps? Or can recommend anything else?
