Giving up smoking in UK Scleroderma Posted February 9, 2016 Thanks Jo, it's the inactivity that's driving me insane. I've been out walking for 2 hours today, but it's been a nice day. Problem is that when I get home I seem to stiffen up again very quickly. Walking loosens everything up, but the stiffness then sets back in. It's as if I need to keep on the move every hour of the day. If I sit and watch TV, I have to constantly keep changing posture and position otherwise my joints and ligaments seem to seize so quickly. I dare not chance swimming with my Raynaud's being so severe.
