http://blog.arthritis.org/living-with-arthritis/weather-arthritis-pain/ This is what I go through with my arthritis. I am fine until the weather starts playing its "change" game just as described in this article. This past Sunday our weather did a drastic change with wind, rain, and drastic temperature droppings. By late afternoon my back and hip areas were so stiff and painful that I could hardly move...and the pain was even radiating down my legs too. I hardly slept Sunday night because I couldn't turn like I usually do and Monday was pretty much the same. I made myself move and try to do my regular things around our home...in between using the heating pad, taking tylenol, and doing gentle stretches to try to loosen the stiffness. This morning is a little better but not by much. I do not want to have to go get a prescription drug for this pain and for the past few years I have been able to just get through it until it passes. But Sunday's pain was almost more than I could stand and it's not much better today. From what the weatherman has said this morning our weather here will keep dropping every night until we end up with frost probably on Sunday. For those who also have arthritis I have a question. Does your arthritis cause you daily pain or is yours affected only by weather "changes" like mine...or a combination, etc?
