I can tell ,most times, when a heavy down pour is on the way. Hips and ankles give off the signals first. It sucks!

Researchers Add to Evidence That Common Bacterial Cause of Gum Disease May Drive Rheumatoid Arthritis - 12/14/2016

Something simple as rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash will help.

That's interesting. I had gum pockets which are now reduced, and that does somewhat correspond to the pain level of my RA.

I was told by the therapists that barometric pressure lows will worsen OA symptoms but nothing really concrete. It's very hard to do rehab when her pain sensitivity changes daily. Also, temperature and humidity seem to have an affect, but again, there's nothing hard and fast. It may be the more dramatic change that occurs at the onset of spring and fall. We also noticed more UTI's or colds then.

Didn't realize prevalence of OA was so high at an early age.

"According to the Centers for Disease Control, about one-third of people 65 years of age and older have osteoarthritis. "

I believe there are so many factors. Arthritis has been an issue as long as I've been on this earth, my parents, their parents etc etc. I have a cousin in the East who has had both knees, both hips and one or both shoulders replaced starting when Medicare kicked in for her.

People move to desert climates for this major reason. To thaw out their joints, then find allergies are a lot worse in the deserts.

Stiff hips, crazy wrist pain, stiff elbows, weak knees, and sore stiff ankles and feet. My bach is not as flexible either.

I am middle aged. Do light excercise and stretches. I would love to run/jog, but settle for walking. I am lucky if i can do 2 miles a day, before nerve pain kicks in.
I also have lumbar issues. It sucks.

I am trying to figure out this mystery.
stiff hands and feet, knees, and ankles. In Hawaii. Kind of dilutes the cold weather theory.

Yeah, I live in Hawaii. When my RA started I literally could barely walk, I was in a puddle of pain.

I live in warmer climate but close to ocean so it's damp too. My joints (knee, ankles) are pretty stiff and hands are somewhat stiff but I am forever moving them. Glucosamine sulfate is now a daily routine. I've taken it off and on over years but now daily for sure. Could be helping.
