Hi there just wondering if anyone suffers with a cold back. I've been feeling a strange chill on my back several times and it feels horrid, I do feel the cold a lot but have only recently felt this & cant warm my back up easily. Feel a bit silly but not sure if this is just a chill or anything related to rheumatoid arthritis :?

    I have RA but I never get a cold back. Can you just wear a gilet or a vest even? If it persists, get it checked our.

    I hope the extra layer helps but, if not, maybe the GP could help.
