How Can You Tell When You Need New Meds

How Can You Tell When You Need New Meds

Weather affects how my body feels. The colder it is, the more I hurt. With the temps dropping, my body has a constant pain and uncomfortableness. Some days worse than others but it's always there. How can I know if it's the weather or if it's the meds not working anymore? It's so hard to tell

It does not matter if it's the weather that's causing you to feel constant pain. If you are in pain, it can and should be treated. I suggest contacting your doctor and exploring treatment options.

I always feel like my RA symptoms worsen when weather is cold and especially when combined with either rain or snow! During that time, I make every effort to do stretches or swim in a warm pool to keep loose. When I'm sitting and watching tv, I sometimes do warm compresses or a heating pad.

The rain affects me more than anything. I always hurt n ache all day when it rains. It's been raining nonstop for two days n I've been hurting n aching. I could hardly walk yesterday at work. I know some ppl say weather doesn't really affect them but it totally does me. I wish it didn't!!

Just log what hurts and how long it hurt. It actually helped me to remember and showed what the trends are.

I've noticed a change when a low pressure system moves in, but everyone is right, pain is pain. I am working through the same while waiting for insurance to cover my biologic. I am hoping that will help.
