:worried:I recently went to my cardiologist and found out that I have minor blockages in my lower legs. It is good that they are minor and that the lipitor, and toprol will be helping with the cholesterol and high blood pressure. I am supposed to walk 3 to 4 times a week for 20 to 30 minutes each time. I started walking to build up to that but for the past two days it has been unbearably hot and humid here, so I will have to walk inside until it rains or a cool front passes over here. Does anyone else have this problem? It is really hard for me to get past the leg cramping to make the walk, but I think I will be able to build up to walking longer as the weather cools down if that ever happens. I am also on a 1500 calorie diet because I have become glucose intolerant, so the weight loss should help as well. Is this a common thing to have with lupus or ra?
