My husband is being treated from arthritis for a few years now. This year, during the winter it got worse, and he had very strong pains. His usual”flare-ups” every now and then, increased to a continual pain and discomfort. Because of this, he couldn’t walk for a few days. When the pain would become easier, it would last only for a few hours. Please, can someone tell me if cold weather is influencing his arthritis? Should we move to place with warmer climate?

There is no significant number of researches that prove or show that cold weather is affecting people with arthritis. But there is evidence that suggest that there is some percentage of people who suffer more during the cold period. As you know, rheumatoid arthritis joint inflammation leads to stiffness and pain. It usually starts in the wrist, hands and feet and it comes on gradually. Because of the last fact, rheumatoid arthritis is hard to diagnose. Many people complain about increased pain during the cold weather. There is no scientific proof for this kind of statement, but it is most likely that people with arthritis can feel more pain caused by cold weather.
