I did a little research online and found information on this website:
This website cites a study conducted at Tufts University in Boston where there was an increase in arthritis pain after a temperature drop of 10 degrees. Although this conflicts with what was stated in our textbook, I personally believe that weather does not affect arthritis pain. A couple years ago, I was in a motorcycle accident that eventually led to multiple surgical implants in my arm that causes arthritis pain in my wrists. I don't think I've ever noticed a difference in pain when the weather changes. But you never really know!
