Does anyone living with rheumatoid arthritis feel it has got worse and sinful with the corona virus

Does anyone living with rheumatoid arthritis feel it has got worse and more painful with the corona virus. I know I have been in more pain since the lockdowns began, when using my limbs I feel they have got weaker and I also feel like I do not want to do things.

    Hi @Lindalew welcome to the online Community, lovely to see you here.

    It may be that with the lockdowns for coronavirus has meant that we are all being a lot less active than we might normally be, even if we are heavily restricted in our activity in normal times.

    I know I have been out quite rarely in the last nine months or so, and as the weather and daylight has gradually turned colder, I'm less inclined to move around as much.

    You might like to take a look at our Let's Move category to see if there is anything encouraging there.


    Also, our web site has a good selection of exercises to manage pain:
