Subject: Having a cold with osteoarthritis

Am I being a hypochondriac...or can having a cold affect osteoarthritis ?
I feel as if I have a cold coming & my arthritis is really playing up today. Usually it's not too bad, I take Ibuprofen & unless it flares up, that takes the edge off.

I have rheumatoid arthritis and when i get a cold or virus my joints actually feel better and I have put that down to my immune system fighting off the cold and giving the joints a rest.
