At the beginning of the winter my rheumatologist (who is a man of few words) said "Stay warm and stay away from sick people." Also any humidity and/or low atmospheric pressure (storms) do affect the joints (nitrous oxide in them, a bit like the bends divers get.)
I don't know what's going on with me. I think it's my first serious flare. I called the doc and he Rx'ed 4 days of prednisone. I skipped my Humira in Nov. because I had bronchitis. At first I thought that caught up with me. Then I thought it was too much work over Christmas. Cold? Humidity? Had my meds quit working? (I've only been on the Humira a year.) Finally after week, I decided it might be a big ole' flair. I hurt from my neck to my toes.
Hang in there baby! In a few days we might get back to a normal winter.
