Can heat and humidity make your joints hurt?

My wrist and my ankles are killing me. They have never been this bad. I live in Philly and we are having a heat wave, could this be the reason? What can I do to help it? I tried icy hot and it didn't do much. I am not sure if I am suppose to heat it or ice it. I am only 30 so I have never had this much pain in my joints. My wrist sometimes hurt from the work but nothing like this.
Answer:
yes dumbass! Just ask andrea she can tell you all about joint pain. LoL we had this convo already. your and old lady. I can't believe you dad said that I was gonna be an old maid soon.
I have osteoarthritis.. when I go to the gym I spend 20 minutes warming up in teh sauna or steam room before I start to workout... just to warm up my joints. I think the cold weather causes me the most trouble.Perhpas you have arthritis too.. try glucosamine. It is thought of as an old person's disease.. but I am not so old.
it's less, but sometimes it can. when winter that's the time most likely oldies hurt their joints
you should really go to the doctors for a check up and some blood work. Joint pain can be rheumatoid arthritis, or a sympton of Lupus SLE. I'm in my 20s and for about 1 year I had joint pain in my wrist and ankles (like you) one and off. I was later diagnosed with Lupus SLE, which is a Autoimmune disease that attacks connective tissues. I really hope you get it checked out, because you can prevent it from getting worse. Something as seemingly simple as joint pain can be a symptom of something more serious.
