Hi lady! Are you able to walk? I love walking whenever I can but when my RA was at it's worst I did water aerobics, which was something I could handle and it actually made me feel better! I also found a great chair aerobics dvd that helped me out a bunch. Go to the main arthritis website and they might have it there. http://www.arthritis.org/

Hi everyone. I am 27 years old and I was recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I have problems with my knees and elbows and have been finding it difficult to get in my workouts lately because of the pain. Does anyone have any suggestions?
