I have a question for the Portland ,Oregon residents that suffer from arthritis and other physically painful afflictions.
How much does the cool wet weather affect your pain?
Is it better in the summer?

I have arthritis and in the summer here it is actually better. It is the low pressure systems that can play heck with me.

I will say that during the Christmas break when we got 2 feet of snow for 2 weeks - I was in a ton of pain.

I would say though that on average, it is not too bad. And when it does get bad - a heating pad is great.

If you come this way - DM me and I'll give you the name of my Rheumatologist. He is awesome!

Hope that this helps some!
