I am a 51 year-old female recently diagnosed with RA and I work in fitness. I’m a group exercise instructor and a personal trainer. As I’m sure it is for everyone here, this has been very difficult news, especially as I’m concerned about my ability to continue to work in my field. My primary symptoms have been muscle pain after exercise and fatigue. When it started I had done some heavy workouts and thought I was coming down with the flu. I appreciate advice from anyone that also works in the fitness industry or that would like to offer some wisdom.
I’m looking forward to reading the posts on this forum and learning more about RA and just connecting with others here. A big thank you to the moderators and those that keep this site going. It is very much appreciated!
