High humidity makes me literally sick if I work out in it too much, and it doesn't take much with the sweat dripping off my chin! I'm so thankful that we have a/c to get recharged and to save my joints from getting too taxed. I feel like Angel, that the main culprit for my joint pain though, is the change of pressure in the weather system with storms coming. I feel like a meterologist and just like our dairy cattle. We can all tell when a storm's coming or even if it's going somewhere else, I still feel it!! That's what I really call a flare-up. Same thing in the winter with the weather changes. Oh, but I literally hate humidity!!! emoticon

Heat and humidity makes my joints swell. Add methotrexate to it, and I get sick to my stomach and diarrhea. When it gets above about 75 degrees out, I have to pick and choose what activities I do outside. I can't go outside two days in a row either because of how sick I get. Summer is not fun!

I'm over 1/2 way to my goal!

Six years ago I got really sick and I can't handle the heat and humidity ever since. Everything just shuts down. No mater how much water I drink, I just turn red and get overheated. Now blood pressure meds and menopause make it worse. Hoping it will get better when I lose weight.

I too HATE humidity, especially humidity with heat, it just saps the life from me. Pain is not the issue for me either. Painwise, I am much more sensitive to the wild fluctuations in pressure we get here during thunderstorm weather. BUT HUMIDITY makes me feel like there is no oxygen in the air and I cannot breath effectively. I start yawning embarrassingly often and uncontrollably. Fortunately, where I now live is usually quite dry, except for rare rainy periods.
