I am 38 years old and was diagnosed with RA when I was 28. Up to that point I was very active and try to be still now. I have a 8 yr old son that keeps me active. I have been walking for awhile now, but would really like to start jogging, I jogged in high school, but when I do jog my feet hurt so bad that I quit after a little bit of jogging. I have the RA in my feet, knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, wrists and hands. I have tried jogging later in the day to avoid the morning stiffness and pain. Does anyone else have this type of pain? It is so severe that after jogging just a short way I can barely walk. Does this mean I will have to give up on the thought of running a 5K?
