    I’ve never had this happen personally but had a coworker who has both RA and fibromyalgia who was greatly affected by this. I will never forget one day last summer when we were having wild storms/tornado warnings in the middle of the day- she was in so much pain, she was laying on the floor. There’s definitely something to this!

    I live down here in Florida and this is a rainy one. I have been working through a major flair and I do believe the weather has a lot to do with it. Hopefully, I can get through this!
