Les, When I first started to exercise after deciding that I would not let the AS control my life, I walked with my dog every day. She enjoyed it and helped me to keep going. Just short walks at first and slowly built it up to about an hour long walk. It did make me hurt a lot in the joints but i had to suck it up and just do it. Eventually the pain level really reduced to a much more tolerable level.

Thanks Mark! I'm sorry I haven't replied sooner. Today on the left side really feels good. I hope I'm not being premature. I walked my dog today (only 15 min.) and my right hip became sore.??? Whole different type of pain. More like stiffness. I probably need to stretch that side more. Lester

Les, I am happy that the pain is finally subsiding. It is a good thing you are sticking to it. The exercise always seem to make you hurt more but I found in time they were really beneficial. Good job and stick to it.

Well, I finally made it to the gym today. I exercised in the water with the Arthritis Foundation Aqua Program. It hurt a little afterwards, but feels better now. emoticon

Hi everybody,
The pain on my left side is finally subsiding. As the doctor said it would. I take another HUMIRA shot tomorrow, that should really reduce the pain even more. Lester
