Hi evryone. Hope you are all managing to fight this dreaded illness.
I have a question and would welcome any experience on the matter. Is it OK to do a fairly moderate-high impact exercise? I did lots of gym classes pre diagnosis but have been a bit scared to do much since. My Rheumatologist said it would be fine and if it hurts then stop.
I struggle to meet the 8-10,000 step goal but some of it is due to my type of work. I am now on alternating 3/2 mg and exactly a year since diagnosis (started at 15 mg). l like running and spin, combat classes. Is anyone managing to do such exercises? I am not good with just walking except when on holiday. Exercise has previously kept me feeling fit & healthy so greatly missed. I did go to a high impact class a few weeks ago and felt a bit stiff the next day but it gradually went so presumed it was normal but have not been back.
Any advice would be welcomed as I have read previously about people on this site that have taken part in marathons and doing thousands of steps each day. I am also worried that I am finding it too easy to make excuses about not attending my gym that I pay a monthly fee for.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for all the support given by this site.
