I saw my doctor today because in the foreseeable future the winter I will start to have more and more cold and flulike symptoms usually October through March. I live in southeastern Arizona where by most American standards has very mild winters. During the hot summer months I feel absolutely fantastic. I rarely get a sniffle cough sore throat or any other symptoms. Come the drop in temperature I repeatedly get sick. My doctor told me I have poly-arthropathy( Most joints are achy all over) probably due to a combination of colder temperatures and Sarc problems. Only seasonaly for me, so it is not RA. During sarcoidosis flareups the body is fighting infection and possibly leaving myself open for an intolerance to cold weather. Other then a shot of prednisone the only other alternative is to move somewhere where the median temperature stays warm all year long. So, anybody else have this problem? Sugestions on where I can go and live the rest of my life free of this problem other than Hawai'i or Puerto Rico? Seriously though. Poss. Costa Rica where there is a big ex-pat community? I'm 44 and single. So this is for me and me only. Also, I just forwarded all of my med records to the VA to determine my claim for Sarc related to Navy service. God Bless.
