I agree that when the weather changes, the pain increases. I am learning to deal with the stiffness and the pain I tried to stretch my body and take hot showers which helps. emoticon

Be sure it's a waterproof heating pad. Don't want anyone getting electrocuted.

If you use heat for your arthritis or anything else, be sure to use moist heat - put a damp towel between you and the heating pad!!!

Has anyone considered using ice instead of heat? Or 15 minutes of ice, 15 minutes of DAMP heat several times a day? Sometimes the pain is caused by inflammation, and that is better treated with ice. Dry head doesn't penetrate and is usually useless.
Been there.

Me, TOO. It has been unbearable. There's no respite in sleep OR from the heating pad. Normally, I'd feel at least a LITTLE relief.

I hope you ladies feel better soon...I've been rubbing and taking medicine for weeks now trying to relive the pain in my knees with very little success so maybe it is the weather

I am having a terrible time as well. The past two days not even my medicine has touched the problem and I can barely function. Hope we feel better soon.

For some reason, the weather changes this year seem to be having a much more painful onpact on my arthritis this year than they have in the past. I wish I had some other means to cope. I need regular access to a hot tub. I need that to help me. I have to figure this out!
