  • CF Related Arthritis and Joint Pain

    I’ve experienced some degree of CF related joint pain since I was a teenager. Often it’s mild and centralized to a specific area: my hands, my knees, my shoulders, etc. But once or twice throughout my adult life, I’ve experienced more of a full-body flare that seems to affect just about every joint in my body! Fortunately, this happens rarely and doesn’t last long. For me, cold weather is a major trigger for joint pain and as we head into the fall and winter months, this is something I’m definitely not looking forward to.

    Aimee Lecointre, a 33 year old with CF, has struggled tremendously with CF related arthritis! You can read about her experience here. 

    Do you struggle with joint pain? If so, do you know what triggers it for you? How do you manage/treat it?
