This is something you really need to discuss with your doctor. If your joints are swollen or painful, weight-lifting might make it worse. Exercise is good but you don't want to put too much stress on your joints. So you should probably get clearance from your doctor to get back into your regular routine.

Hey exercising is good. I am 35 and have had LU for 2.34 years I would say if the pain doesnt go away or lighten while exercising then you need to stop.. I think when there is a little swelling or soreness with pain your
LUPUS is agervated. You can worsen it by pushing to far. I have experienced it myself...
