So sorry to hear you are suffering, but yes! The cold can be miserable and painful! I've had RA for several years now and one of my very first winters, my husband and I went out for New Years Eve to an outdoor celebration (we live in CO) to see the lights, have hot cocoa etc. Well, we thought we dressed warmly, but half way through, my hips felt literally frozen and were burning on fire
I told my husband, I didn't think I could make it all the way, and he ended up carrying/helping me to the car
It was horrible! It was at that point that I learned about
the cold, RA and joint pain and later told my rheumy about
it, and he said yes very common...It might be "very common" however living here winter time is all about
outdoor activities in the snow, but I'm terrified of having that happen again. I'm sorry you are experiencing the painful cold and I don't have a lot of advice on how to make it go away, sorry!! Try to stay as warm as possible, and hopefully Spring will be here soon!
