Exercise and RA

How important is it to exercise when you have RA?
If I am sedentary stiffens sets in. Activity brings on waves of tingly pain all over (mostly from the waist down).
When I push myself to be active one day the next day I can hardly move. I think maybe the answers to my questions are different for each person. Does anyone have thoughts on this subject?
