Pressure change weather pain !

I’ve woke up this morning and my left hand is very stiff and very painful !! Is this weather change ? I’ve been on sulfasalazine nearly 4 months today and my hands have been reasonably ok til this morning ! And I deffo haven’t overdone it cus it was too hot yesterday to do much anyway !

Hope everyone is keeping well xx

    i think the only answer is it might be or it might not. In my experience changes in barometric pressure can affect my RA and, in really hot weather, I just wilt and, when things were not well-controlled, my joints would swell. Give me cold any day. But, I can only suggest you see how it goes and, if it stays, contact your rheumatology helpline.

    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.
