While I’ve read the medical/technical recommendations, I’m curious to know what works best for all of you.
With my earlier symptoms, stiffness and pain generally improved after being up an hour or two, and though some pain lingered, I felt like I was better off to push through. The past couple of months, however, things are changing. More joints affected and especially the past two days, movement doesn’t help a huge amount and as soon as I’m still for more than 30 minutes, it goes back to bad. I’m also having considerable pain at rest (gave in and took steroids last night so today is a little better).
So my question is, from everyone’s personal experience, is it possible to push through on the tougher days or does that set you back considerably?
Also, when not in a flare, how is your activity level? Can you get away with pushing in between flares?
Thanks in advance!
