    I can't lift or bend due to the pain during a flare.  However when I am feeling better, I walk.  Not far - just around a mile and a half, through our local woods.  I think swimming might also be good, although I dont!

    I exercise almost every day doing 30 minutes of some type of cardio or weight lifting.    However, my flare 2 years ago occurred after spending a day in 90 degree heat distributing wheel barrow loads of wood mulch in our gardens and shrub beds.  Coincidence? I don't know due to the fact that I ate tomatoes with seeds and pine nuts too.  Since then, I have cut out all nuts, seeds, and insoluble fibers from my diet.  I do not do heavy lifting anymore either!
