Last night we got our first cold front of the season and it hit the low 50s! I know, I know. Some of you may be like laughing, but for Miami that’s freezing!! :)
Having Arthritis can mean that the cold whether really aggravates your joint pain, stiffness, and swelling and trust me, I am feeling it!
Last winter, when I spent a week in Boston visiting my family I was in a wheelchair the entire trip because the cold made me so incredibly stiff! Boston is a beautiful city, but I don’t think I could ever live there just because the cold hurts my joints so much.
However, for those of you Arthritis Folks who live up north (or people who just don’t like the cold), keeping your joints warm could definitely help you, like its been helping me lately. It makes a real difference!
So.. here are a few products I’m using right now to keep my joints nice and toasty! :)
Sunbeam Heating Pad - This I actually use all year round cause it really helps when I'm feeling particulary stiff and you don't have to keep heating it up in the microwave like some other heating pads.
Warm Essentials Leggings - This I wish I had taken to Boston, but unfortunately I didn't think of it, so I froze. Luckily, I've been getting my use out of them this week. They're great to wear under pants!
Sunbeam Heated Fleece - This one I haven’t bought , but that’s only because my husband won’t let me! He thinks its a little too ridiculous for Miami. I disagree ;)
