I've been going to a wellfitness program two to three times a week, which my pcp throught it would be good for me. I also thought it would be good for me since I haven't really done to much exercise. It's been one big mistake since I been going. I was ok in the beginning even thought I had joint pain but thought I would pass that since I have'nt exercised in a long time, so I stop going cause I was in so much pain. I've been using capsaicin cream for my aches and pains it seems to work somewhat. I went to my rhumy she gave me shots in my joints again and said that was not for me. She told me to go for water exercise. I know people on the fourm were talking about it I was wounding if you like it, and does it help I spent  $200 and can't use this program. I was also wondering about the (cholrine)sorry misspell does it bother you since I have the rash I ask my rhumy about it she said she never thought of that , so I don't want to try it because of that reason. How do other people feel.  Thanks  Debbie

Hi Joinery,

Sorry your fitness program was too aggressive. That's probably all that happened. We need to engage in physical activity in a very gradual manner. We also need to progress very slowly. You will get very good at listening to your body and learning how much activity you can tolerate. I've overshot things WAY too often. Now I know I can walk more if I slow down. I can walk more if I go a shorter distance and go more often. There are times when any exercise or walking will be too much. So make sure to listen to your body and start and progress VERY slowly.

The chlorine may actually help your rashes. You won't know until you try it. LOL . . make sure you don't sign up for a big long program . . . wouldn't want you to lose another fortune. Post and let us know how you make out. Others here have enjoyed a water program.

Blessings!

Hi Debbie,
   I'm sorry to hear your having problems from the fitness program. I started exercising a few weeks ago. Not intense at all and it put me in a flare.
   As far as the water exercise, we have a community center here that has an indoor olympic size pool. You can go do anything all day there for 10 dollars a day or you can join a yearly program. Do you have something like that in your area to try and see if it will work for you?
   I have been to the pool a couple of times just to try it out and I really enjoyed it. I have no balance in water so I have to wear one of those belts that keep you up in water. I just paddled around the pool with my arms and legs and had no soreness at all. I'm going to try and go again soon and hope to join in the near future.
   I wish you the best and hope you find something that works for you and helps you feel better. Please keep us udpated and take care. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you both for your reply: What a fool I was thinking I can do this lol. I could have sign up for 1 month no I sign up for 6 months how dumb. Rosie I started to walk around the block once after lunch and sometimes after dinner I know now to listening to my body. Babs: We have a ymca by me but that would cost me to much, I know we also have a school that has a pool I will have to check that out. My rhumy wants me to go to this rehabilitation center I could probley go through my husband insurance, but the rehab. is 40 min. away. Thank you Debbie
