For the last two days my hands have been killing me.  I am not sure why.  It could be the gardening.  It could be the weather.  It could be, I don't know, the fact that it is the 13th of May.  Who knows why my hands hurt?  Today to round out the intense pain, my feet started hurting.  Usually RA patients hurt more when it is intensely cold not when it is intensely hot.

I am trying to wait it out and see if the pain will go away before I call the doctor.  I am not anxious to increase my Prednisone or go back on Plaqunil.  This heat wave will only last a few days and maybe then I will feel better.

Until tomorrow...


  1. I'm having the same problem, Adrienne. I think it may be the weather, personally. Changes in barometric pressurre have always caused me problems, but when it's rising (as it does when high pressure areas settle in) my symptoms get worse.

    I hope, like you (and FOR you) that when the pressure drops again, we'll both feel better!

    1. I am so sorry you are having pain also Wren.


Would love to hear what you have to say!
