-How do your joints feel in cold damp weather? Do They Feel worse?
-How about in warm weather or with movement? Do your joints feel better then?
-How do your tongue look? Is it have a white coating and pale complexion?
-After you're done eating how is your digestion? Is it slow or do you have indigestion? Do you feel fatigued after eating?
-Do you seem to get bloated easily in the middle after eating?
-Is your joint pain transitory? Is it moving and coming and going?
-Do you have a sense that your limbs are dragging? Do they feel heavy?
Answering "yes" to these questions allows you to determine if you have the beginnings of wind-chill-damp joint pain. Which makes these questions indispensable for determining the correct course of treatment. Finding out that you have wind-chill-damp pain does not always mean that you have rheumatoid arthritis. That depends more on your habits along with your hormones and genes.
When you feel very severe joint aches which stem from an abundance of dietary toxins as well as emotionally poor habits, this is known as inflammatory arthritis.
-How are your joints? Are they red, hot, and swollen?
-What do your hands look like? Are your knuckles getting wrinkled and bigger? Are your palms more dry?
-Do you find that your joints seem to be extremely sensitive to touch?
-Unlike the previous questions, do your joints feel worse in heat and during movement?
-Does your tongue have a reddish color with a yellow coating?
-Do you seem to be angry often? How about anxious, and/or nervous?
-Do you find yourself thirsty and feverish?
-Does it feel like your energy is fast? Do you happen to be an insomniac?
How about these questions? Did you answer "yes" to these? If you find yourself having a preference for spicy foods, and you experience chronic fever or thirst, you probably have inflammatory joint pain.
