Good day all. New poster.
I am a 45 year old male airline pilot diagnosed 2 years ago with RA. My symptoms include the regular .pain and fatigue associated.
I am fairly active when feeling well. When flare ups occur I find Netflix and bed my go to. My question is am I making things worse by not moving. Does anyone have any ideas or experience with the benefits of “forced” activity? The last thing I want to do is go for a run with the dog or kiteboard when I feel like I have been run over. I tend to call in sick on the bad days. As you can imagine working on a bad day is not something I am personally or professionally comfortable with.
I guess I am asking if anyone has had any luck affecting the length or intensity of flares.
Great site I am glad I found it.
