My balance is bad which makes walking difficult.
Thanks so much
What do you guys do for exercise if any? When I was in high school I ran cross country and I stopped because I hurt my ankle really bad. I am not sure if my body will allow me to do that again. So I was wondering what exercises are best?
Yoga is very forgiving as you can push yourself to your ability. I stretch every day and it does help. My exercise is walking and stretching even when I feel awful, I can move accordingly
I recently started going to the gym again and started with a lot of cardio for the past 5 days now. I have been noticing a lot of my lupus symptoms kicking in for the past couple of days. Tonight i have the butterfly rash and my knees are swollen. Could i be having a flare up from doing to much at the gym too fast? If so how many days a week should I be going so i don’t have a flare up like this?
I’m with you guys on supplements, exercising and eating mostly vegan. However, I have to take these toxic medications to stay alive.
Does anyone get swelling on just the bottom of the feet and if so how do you treat it.
I’ve tried soaking in Epsom salt and massage plus elevating my feet but nothing seems to help. It feels like something is stuck to the bottom of my feet when I walk and all of my shoes are too tight to wear.
I am interested in learning more about what exercise works for different lupus warriors.

I need to do exercise, any idea?
Thank you, I stated to walk again o need to move 😊
I have chf ckd.I try work out at the gym twice a week was wondering if I'm doing more harm than good if I work out when not feeling well.
When I was not feeling well I just walked and did yoga. If I tried pushing myself too hard, like trying to run, I felt worse.
My pain mngmt and orthopedic want me to go to pt, but I wonder🤔, because I was very strong with no pain or swelling one week before I became active with lupus. I feel like if lupus is what is causing my muscles to be weak (not to mention inflammation causing pain and weakness) and lupus is causing my fatigue (I also have sjogrens,fibromyalgia, and copd) then how do they expect me to gain strength by exercising if my lupus is still active? My rheumy agrees with me, he says first you have to put… read more
