Hi Pinksilly, I too was recently diagnosed. I know the doctors tell us to walk, etc. but it really helps me to stretch afterwards. In fact, I don't exercise or walk if I don't have time to stretch . If I don't stetch, even a little, I stiffen up so bad. I do simple yoga poses, but only if I have warmed up. I'm not sure if my meds are helping as much as I need and I plan to tell my doctor in May when I go back to him. Be sure to tell you doc if you don't think your meds are working. Good luck!
Good Luck everyone

Just wanted to welcome you to the forum!!
A good relationship with you doctors (that you employ) is critical. Remember... they work for you, so if you're not happy with them, find another one. These doctors need to know when they aren't doing a good job for those that pay them
Glad you found us!!
