Morning everyone, I've noticed I've had a lot more pain and swelling lately so it made me wonder if it's because of the summer weather? Has anyone else noticed that their OA gets worse in the heat or is it just me?

@painman @Courtney_J Personally I'm not having any worse symptoms than usual, fortunately. But I think there is something about humidity or air pressure that can affect the joints and swelling. I usually have a harder time in the cold.
