The weather in South Carolina is taking a sudden turn towards winter. It was so nice earlier today – blue skies and 70° with a nice breeze – we had the windows open. Then the wind clouds rolled in, the temperature dropped, and the wind picked up.

My 13-year old (referred to as Diva on this blog) and I went to the supermarket for a couple items this evening and that wind was quite uncomfortable. Brrrr. It made my joints hurt just being out in it for a few brief minutes and it took me over an hour to warm up and get that pain back under control. Ouch!

This is part of my “typical winter” with RA. Do you find similar symptoms when the weather turns cold where you live? Please share any tips/tricks you have for winter pain management.

Have a low-pain day!
