Cloudy With A Chance Of Achy Joints

Cloudy With A Chance Of Achy Joints

I posted this picture on Instagram with the caption: Today’s productivity brought to you by: @doterra Deep Blue, Citrus Bliss & #Turmeric!

Why?

Because it was a rainy, 60-degree day in January here in Pittsburgh.

The deep blue was helping my aching knees and hands, the turmeric was helping with inflammation and pain relief, and the citrus bliss, in my diffuser, was keeping my spirits lifted!

I knew a day like this was coming.

In the last week I was in 40-degree weather, then 80-degree weather (work trip to Florida!), back to 20-degree weather, then it went back up to 40. . .  and to have it change one more time to 60-degrees today!

I don’t know about you, but when the temperature jumps up and down like that, I tend to feel it.

Writing a post about weather and psoriatic arthritis (or really any autoimmune condition). Do you experience any symptoms with hot or cold weather? Can…

I recently wrote a slide show for HealthCentral on how weather affects autoimmune arthritis.

Believe me, it affects our joints a lot more than people think!

Does Weather Affect Psoriatic Arthritis?

What does the forecast look like this week where you live? Is it cloudy with a chance of achy joints? Sometimes, as patients, we feel our bodies are better at predicting the weather than our local meteorologist. And there is definitely merit to it! You’re not crazy.

    I, too, live in Pittsburgh and was absolutely miserable yesterday. I left work early because my body ached so badly. I haven’t officially been diagnosed with RA but there’s definitely an autoimmune thingy going on with me. Thanks for your site, I just found it this week and have found lots of useful info. I think there’s a 60 degree day coming next week too…prepare!
