I'm just irritated.. now that it's getting colder here in my drafty apartment my joints hurt more and more. I haven't had a good nights sleep in three days and I sit here envying my boyfriend as he saws logs in the bedroom.. grrr.. haha.. At least I'm up early enough for the nausea to subside (most of the time) and to make some breakfast.. that's an upside.

Yeah, I can relate. That is the worst symptom I have - along with fatigue.

Know how you feel.  There are times I feel like I have one of those body flus that won't quit.

I have found that lidoderm patches help my joint pain although the humira has helped too, I find mine get worse in extreme temps and the week before my period.
