Dr. Jamie D. Weisman Atlanta GA

Lupus is an autoimmune disease. If you have Lupus, you most likely will be experiencing it a variety of different ways and severities. It affects people very differently. During the winter months you may experience more joint pain, your rash may flare up or a variety of other symptoms. The cold weather may feel like your enemy with the cooling temperatures that fall is ushering in.

Diet, environment, hormones and genetics all can have a large impact on the amount and severity of your flare-ups. For some people with lupus, cold and wet weather really affects the severity of their lupus symptoms. Changes in barometric pressure can also be a trigger.

If your Lupus is being triggered and flaring up with the cooler temperatures, here are a few tips for how to cope with it.

  • Exercise– As difficult as it must seem with your painful conditions, it’s important to keep your body moving. Stretching, walking and moving will help keep your joints moving and possibly help reduce your pain levels.
  • Clothing– Wear layered clothing. You can’t predict the weather, but you can have the ‘tools’ to combat it if it changes for the worse. Be prepared with multiple layers to keep you warm.
  • Epsom Salt– Take an Epsom Salt bath to help your inflamed joints feel less achy.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
