Still feeling considerably better than I have for a long time. The improvement was so sudden & came a couple of days after a fair bit of exposure to the sun. Since then I've been reading up about possible links between RA and Vitamin D deficiency. Some studies seem to suggest that low Vitamin D levels might be a cause of Ra and many more emphasise that people with persistent disease activity are especially likely to be deficient in Vitamin D.
Well of course it's raining now but as soon as the sun reappears I'll be out there continuing my scientific research i.e. sunbathing. It's tough work but someone's got to do it ..... I'll let you know my findings! Seriously, I think maybe loads of us would do well to consider getting more rays if the drugs will allow or failing that a supplement and more Vitamin D-rich foods.
Just need the weather to cooperate ........ Luce xx
