Re: RA and it's triggers
Matt, I have RA plus lupus. I also found out I am gluten intolerant, which I think is common with both of these. My triggers seem to be overexertion, barometric pressure changes, cold, damp weather, and generally just overdoing it. The sun triggers my lupus. RA can cause serious lung disease (interstitial) so PLEASE stay smoke-free. It will help many things as far as your health. I generally feel better in the spring/summer when the winter weather and storms are not an issue, so the good time of year is coming! Best wishes to you.
