Unbearable pain

Apr 29, 2016 8:06 AM

The weather has been real wet and rainy and my pain in my body has been unbearable. Had to take extra pain medication. Not a good week at all

Sallysue, weather is a trigger for many of us. Cold weather or humid & hot affects differently. I'm sure it's the same with you. Are you able to do Epsom salt bath soaks? I can't any longer due to inability to get in/out of a tub. Warm showers usually loosen me up from the night in bed. In cold weather I try to dress warm, even wearing Arthritis crafter's gloves on my hands. Hot & humid weather is a little harder, as no specific thing helps. From others on here I've learned relaxing, listening to music or watching comedies, stretching out gentle exercises helps. With OA & sjogrens affecting my joints & fibro the muscles, I can't sit, stand, last, or walk more than 15-30 minutes before I must change position of activity. Otherwise I get very stiff and it's difficult to move, along with the increased pain. Hopefully others can offer suggestions that may help too. It's very hard to focus on anything but our pain, especially when it's like you are this week. Sending you gentle hugs & prayers you will soon begin to improve with leads pain, and the next flare is a long way off! 🙂💕🙏🌼

Sallysue, I feel you there. Any time there is bad weather and it hangs around for a while, my pain levels soar.. I hope it's getting sunny and the weather has let up by you and that your pain has eased up. Hang in there, you're not alone. {{{Hugs}}} 💕🙏🏻🌻😊
