Thanks, lately I've been trying to build muscle in my arms to take the strain off my wrists and hands, and build my leg muscles to take the strain off my knees. Everyday is different for me somedays are good some days are bad I never know till I wake up. So on good days I workout but try not to push it.View Thread
I used to have a very active lifestyle, but since I found out I've got RA, no more surfing no more beach volleyball. Still love to swim and snorkel and free dive! Doesn't effect my joints. I found swimming to be an excellent alternative. I'm training to be able to hold my breath so I can go underwater deeper and/or longer. I suggest swimming or diving to everyone out there, with RA.View Thread
