The heat does not seem to bother my arthritis. Thanks goodness since it's has really been heating up here and then it turns cooler. That is when it hurts. When that happens the heating pad and a hot bath are my best friends.

When it's over 85 degrees, humidity, cold- under 40 degrees and getting ready to rain-not raining, my arthritis bothers me.

JUST FOR TODAY, ONE DAY AT A TIME

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

My husband has both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. When his gets so bad his hands will actually get all twisted and first thing he does is to put them into the hottest water he can stand. He does the same thing at night but then he gets into tub to help the arthritis in his back, knees, and arms. He soaks in the tub sometimes for an hour. He sure seems to help him. He is also on Plaquenil for his RA.

Thank you as I thought I was going nuts The heat, cold, dampness and humidity bother me. My fiance doesn't understand. Everytime he thinks I'm in pain he says I need to see the doctor. For what? I say. He'll just tell me it's my Arthritis, Fibrysistics disease or my Fibromyalgia. I live with it and take 2 advil every day once in the morning and once at bedtime. Was taking 4 Tylenol 2 with codiene but all it did was constipate me. Since I started getting the weight off the pain isn't so severe and my 2 knee replacements are better pain wise.

I WILL SUCCEED BECAUSE I KNOW I CAN DO IT AND I AM MOTIVATED.

Heat can help when applied directly to the joints, but hot weather can be hard to handle with arthritis, especially with RA and other autoimmune diseases. When my arthritis is acting up I'll take a long hot bath which helps a lot, but I can't deal with the hot weather.

Blessed be.

For me, it really comes down to changes in the atmosphere - the air pressure - and also I think the various pollens - ("hay fever", as such, didn't used to affect me).

I need to keep up my water - not just liquid. But it is a fine line between enough water and too much.
I have been reading and hearing over the last couple of days that we should be "eating" most of our water. Apparently so our bodies make best use of it. So I am now happy to go back to iceberg lettuce - despite it's bad press recently, it does still have some nutrients etc. so I should not discount it completely.

Hi, Thanks for your response. I do my exercises and I never drink pop. I keep on spark so I don't go back to my old ways. I do not take any medications. Maybe I need a trip to the doc's. I really don't want to do that. Thank you for your ideas. Jackie

I have just the opposite problem - my arthritis gets worse with the cold OR if there is a storm coming. The humidity will bother my arthritis a lot.

As far as the weight gain when it's hot - are you drinking something other than water, tea (no sugar), coffee such as drinking regular pop which will add calories quite quickly and cause you to gain not only excess calories but help you to retain excess fluids as well.

Make sure that you get some type of exercise no matter how small it is to keep your joints etc from getting stiff as well thus causing you more pain. Hope this helps.

Hi, I have never posted here before. I have a question that you have probably answered before but, I have arthritis and I thought the heat was suppose to help. I never do well when it gets hot. Does anyone else have this problem? Also my weight goes up when it heats up. Thanks Jackie
