Those suffering with arthritis and other joint related issues know all too well that arthritis and cold weather don’t get along. So, what can arthritis sufferers do to enjoy the cold weather while keeping pain and flare-ups at bay? For starters, they can layer up in the 5 heated clothing items designed to combat cold weather.
