Does anyone else have a flare up due to the weather? My big trigger seems to be from extreme cold weather or from weather going back and forth from warm to cold (like when winter transitions to spring). I have vasculitis as well as Sjogren's and currently the cold is taking it's toll on me! I mostly get throbbing muscle aches in my arms as well as tight joint pain and stiffness. Fatigue usually comes with it as well. Acupuncture definitely helps, but doesn't necessarily make it go completely away. Lots of hot baths, light yoga, heat packs, super warm boots and socks, heaters at my desk at work., etc. Any other suggestions? Diets that have helped you? Herbal supplements? Not looking to go on any other medications, so looking for more natural ideas. And of course, would like to know if anyone else experiences this from the weather! Getting to the point where I might need to work from home during the cold days so my body doesn't have to keep going from cold to warm to cold again! I live in the Great Lakes area and sadly moving to a warmer climate is not possible in the near future....but a trip to Florida is booked for March so that will definitely help! : )
Any advice is appreciated!
