Hi - I am usually to be found on the INSPIRE thread, but have just been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition, "SLE" or "Lupus". I have had this in a fairly mild form for several years, mostly have joint pain, aching limbs, flu like symptoms, headaches and tiredness. I have "flares" when I don't fell well at all, and also have times when I feel fine. I have managed to keep running through most of the flares but sometimes just can't, and my consultant says to continue as long as I feel okay! I have just started to take some medication for this condition which might take some time to work. I just wondered if anyone out there has any experience or knowledge of this condition and advice on exercise / running with Lupus?
