Knee

So I was talking about the pimply nodules that can appear on the knee in a recent post, and it just so happens that I have one right now on my left knee.


It might look like just a pimple, but it is not. It is one of the most painful things about Still's Disease. You want to pop it, because anytime anything touches it, it feels like a knife into your kneecap. This also makes you want to just stay away from it. Unfortunately, these can last for quite a while. While you probably shouldn't pop it, it is best to do so after icing the nodule and using a sterilized needle in addition to your classic pimple-picking skills.

It has snowed all day today here in Southeastern Wisconsin. With all that moisture, one would probably expect to experience a lot of pain. I am achy all over, but that could because of the bronchitis stuff that I am just starting to shake.

Also, if you're looking for a good indicator of the relationship between weather and arthritis in your town, check out Accuweather's arthritis index.
