I'm in north Texas, we've gone from 102 hot, humid to misty and our high today was 67. low in the morning 59! that's a dramatic change and my knee feels it. winters worse? I heard it is and as much as I adore cold weather, hope my knee OA doesn't hurt too bad this winter. me too..I feel at war with my knee
I'm also in North Texas. going from that heat in the 100's to cool damp days was rough. I love wintertime!!! absolutely love it but I dread hurting more too. I get my first ortho visc shot on Monday, I hope these help. and the weather today is so muggy & sure looks like it could rain any minute...I've been feeling it all day.
I'm from Florida. It's rained all day. Chiropractor said barometric pressure causes a lot of inflammation. My pain is intense today! I have a very weird pain I've never felt in my chins. Its just a burning, feels like it's in my bones. It's definitely not cold though!
noz - I dread the cold weather coming each year. I feel just as you do as if im at war with my body and the weather. I have 2 slipped discs in neck and a bulge and tear in lower back disc, i also have all over nerve pain, fibro myalgia and raynards syndrome. I just have to wrap up really well. I've just bought some thermal boots which I'm hoping will help this year. I'm often in gloves and boots while others look at me as if I'm mad. problem exists when raynards gets bad, my hands and feet swell and their really painful, I can't bear anything touching them. I live in lincolnshire, England and we've just had a drop in temperature. not good
I guess it's time for electric blanket. what's hard for me is I can't stand anything touching my right foot. I'm barefoot or if needed flip flops. I think the sciatic nerve is responsible ...really nervous for winter!
noz - thinking of you. I often can't bear anything touching me at all. it's very hard to cope with and difficult to deal with. my heatings turned up already, kids are moaning reckoning I'm boiling them. they understand though and know I need to stay warm.
it certainly is. I live with my two youngest children. my daughter is 8 years old and we're very close. she is always wanting a hug or to snuggle up to me, it's heart breaking when I have to say no because I'm in so much pain. I then have to deal with her tears and explain to her again. I can only imagine what it's like for you not being able to be close with your hubby. I have close friends and my mum who get frustrated because they feel they can't help by giving a cuddle or holding my hand when I'm going through a super sensitive episode. but I often think - I'll swap places with you, maybe they'd understand then, that you're not pushing them away.
