Exercise?
A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

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

Exercise
A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.

Swollen Feet
A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

Mine was related to poor circulation at night and working on my feet all day.

A MyLupusTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?
