PMR in cold weather

Posted by crhp194 @crhp194, Mar 2 11:35am

Does any sufferer of PMR think that cold weather can kick off PMR? I have had giant cell arthritis in the chest for several years but PMR only once before. After being out in Florida cold (50-59 degrees) for about 4 hours and in 15mph wind on a boat for 1 hour I was extremely sore the next day but felt it was from walking on a beach and bending over. The pain and soreness continues and it makes sleeping difficult. Wondering if anyone has had this happen to them. Thank you to any who may respond.

Hi @crhp194 that is a very interesting question. Fellow PMR patients @johnbishop @jules11 and @virginiaj may have opinions or experience to share on this topic.

Has you pain abated at all since you posted?

Thanks for the invite @ethanmcconkey. @crhp194, my PMR is currently in remission but when it was active the cold seemed to make my PMR a little worse. In my 2 occurrences of PMR I don't believe either was triggered by the cold though.

Yes it has abated some but for 3 days, it was bad. First day better today but still not gone but bearable.
