Since our balmy autumn changed to wet and windy weather, I have become progressively more achey. Is it an old wives' tale that the weather affects our joints and muscles? Or it is purely coincidence that the about-turn in the weather has happened at about the time I started a reduction from 5 to 4.5 mg of pred? I don't want to believe that I am having a flare, but I haven't had such aches in shoulders, biceps and wrists for quite a long time. I think I will persevere with the 4.5mg unless things get any worse.
