    Default Weather?

    It's beastly in Chicago. 100+ temps with heat index and surprisingly I feel pretty good. One of the reasons I guess that I may have RA. I have read on another forum that RA patients generally speaking feel better in warmer more humid climates. Or maybe I was in a flare and now I'm out? Of course that would be my luck right before my rheumatologist appt.

    It is 105 here today in PA and I have a bad headache and nausea. I am always sick in heat but it seems worse the longer I have this or it's the MENTALPAUSE!

    Marie,

    That's why you do feel better because RA loves the warmth but sadly the winter is it's worst nightmate...so enjoy the best of it while you can but still be careful.

    It's cool and dull here at the moment just how i love it and my skin can cope ok with it.

    Tammy sorry to say mate but it's a mixture of both causing how bad your are, so try and keep out of the direct heat as much as possible.

    My hearts with you mate where the heats concerned. xxxx

    Tammy - sorry. I don't spend much time out in the weather; mostly in the a/c home and clinic. So I guess then my question doesn't make sense. I don't know. Maybe I should just quit thinking about it and enjoy the lull.

    The weather itself doesn't bother me one way or the other. The BAROMETER is what does me in. It crashes, I crash. It bounces around, I get nasty headaches and I feel like I've been run over by a truck. The weather holds steady, whether it is cold or hot, just as long as it holds steady, I'm fine.
