Hello everyone

I’ve just joined the platform and wanted to pose my first question, I have psoriatic arthritis I’m 34 and currently auto immune injections.

My house is a 2-bed end terrace and I have been told there is likely no insulation in my walls, I have a log burner and two electric heaters in the house (we don’t use the electric heaters because they cost a fortune and don’t do anything!) I’m trying to fight my landlord to confirm the lack of insulation, I dread the winter every year as my house, bedroom especially is freezing.

Does anyone know if there is a correlation between the cold and arthritis which I can then take to my landlord? I’m really struggling at the minute and need to get this resolved.

Sorry for the long post!

Thank you, Becki
