Thanks! Never willing to admit I need time. Problem is once I rest or skip workouts it puts me in a downward spiral. Seems part of key for my management of this is at least 30 minutes or exercise a day.
Laura, Sorry to hear you hurt so bad. I have not had a pulled mussle in a long time but I do have Fibromyalgia. My mussles go into spasams. Rick is right it does take us longer to heal. I have a secret weapon. My husband is a massage therapist. It really helps.
It is not uncommon for people with lupus to experience muscle aches and pain (myalgias) or have inflammation of certain muscle groups (myositis), which causes weakness and loss of strength. More than 90 percent of people with lupus will experience joint and/or muscle pain at some time.
I also know that when I over exert myself lifting weights, What may take a normal person i day of rest to recover, it takes me 2 or 3 days.
Hope this helps

Two weeks back I pulled muscle in my right calf jogging. I did RICE and alternate exercise for cardio for close to two weeks. I rode bike outside and relied on elliptical. Few days back I added walking back n to the mix. Well yesterday it was bike outside day and it was raining. I decided to try treadmill figuring it would be safer than running outside. Well calf was sore again when done. Is there any connection between lupus and RA and pulled muscles? Or is this just an exercise injury back for a second time?
