    Default Weather impacts?

    Hi
    I was wondering if the weather impacts anyone's lupus symptoms.
    Other than the sun/heat of course! ;-)
    It seems that inclement weather really seems to play a number on me.
    My hands and ankles hurt so bad I can hardly move them, I get brain fog and general malaise.
    Does the weather impact any of you in a similar manner?

    Thanks for the feedback.

    It impacts me, dropping barometric pressure gives me headaches. rain makes me hurt, so does cold. Cold really effects my feet; that started when I was 7 or 8. I really remember my Dad taking me to football games and how bad my feet would hurt from the cold.

    Brain fog from the weather, I don't know about that one.


    Hope this helps to know you are not alone in this symptom.

    The weather impacts most of us. Since Lupus is a rheumatic disease with rheumatoid factors..many of us find that the cold, rain, wind, snow, etc. causes us joint pains and exacerbates our symptoms.
    Also, during the summer, the sun, heat, dryness causes us to experience skin lesions, rashes, and ulcers. It also causes debilitating fatigue for many.
    There is no perfect weather for Lupus sufferers, we just try to do as much as we can to minimize the effects of the weather upon us. :-(

    Peace and Blessings

    Here, here, winter is coming on and Im starting to fall backwards again. This summer life hasn't been too bad, been able to manage my symptoms pretty well, but, now that we are having storm after storm roll through, bringing colder temps and rainy weather, I am in more pain, feeling much more tired, fighting to keep everything together, and just wanting to curl up in bed for a week, just sleep. I guarantee, I could do it too. My appetite is mostly gone, comes and goes. Wierdly enough, my glasses hurt the bridge of my nose after just a short while. Theyre feather light lenses and frames, but, they feel like glass and metal heavy frames. Oh, why can't the change in the weather be a good thing?
