Are there safe exercises (other then water exercises) people with lupus can do without further hurting our already painful joints?

Weight: Anything that is comfortable for you such as biking or swimming. You may want to get a personal trainer in the gym or go to physical therapy to know more about appropriate exercise for you. General rule: anything that does not hurt.
