Now that I think the enbrel and increased ultracet are helping me feel better, I want to start exercising again. I used to be an exercise queen with power step aerobics, spinning, and running. But I've really become a slug in the past 9 months or so. I've also noticed that even if I force myself to go for a walk, my hips and shoulders get so incredibly sore that I'm pretty much shot for the rest of the day. My rheumatologist said I'm probably wearing improper shoes, which might explain the hips, but doesn't explain my shoulders? In any case, what do the rest of you guys do for exercise? I've thought about swimming but it's been so many years since I've done that...
