Can you clarify your question for me. I want to make sure I understand it the way I think it may be. I just didnt want to answer it without knowing exactly what you are asking. I wish you the best today.

I agree with profiler, could you clarify this? However if you are talking about you moo/happiness level, it is the different faces (from smiley to sad) when you log in your pain

Ok..been having some serious pain and lots of other symptoms some also affect my state of mind and my ability to make sense lol! I personally believe that I am affected by not only the weather but also the barometric pressure. I have fibromyalgia, for ruptured disc in my neck and a number of other back problems plus some other fun stuff. I think I also have costochondritis as my ribs have been really bothering me a lot this year. as you can probably guess I am new here thank you for the response.

Angelstarz, welcome to the club!!! You have similar issues to me and I understand what you mean about the weather. I have found that ANY changes in humidity, temperature and/or barometric pressure cause me to have worse pain. It really does effect your state of mind. It can make you feel like you're in a dark pit, your memory goes and you cant think sometimes.... People just think I'm a babbling idiot anyway.. LOL!!! It's ok, it's all part of the path we have to travel. We are all here to talk to you, offer suggestions and just be here for you in general. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.... Again, welcome to the community.

Welcome to the community Angelstarz! Weather is a factor for me too. I have asthma and allergies, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, Sjogrens, bulging/ruptured disc damage (2 surgeries), lots of pelvic floor issues, TMJ, just to name a few. I also suffer from memory loss and all these issues just compound that. But having joined this community is a huge plus. There's always advice and suggestions, or support and laughter. I try to stay relaxed because when I get upset it makes everything worse. I read (when I can focus), listen to music, watch TV, study my Bible, play tablet games, and play with my dog to relax. I use to garden, sew & cross stitch, but my body no longer let's me do them. I hope you find this community as beneficial as I have. I will keep you in my prayers. 🙏🌼

Angel Starz welcome to our little family community. I have Syringomyelia a Syrinx inside the spinal cord, Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, Migraines, a herniated disk @L4S1 with a uprooted nerve. I also have Type 2 diabetes, and Nuropathy in my the bottom of my feet. I agree with everyone about the weather causing me to have more pain. If the barometric pressure is high, or if it's getting ready to rain my pain levels go up.

Welcome Angel,
My barometric sensitivity is a result of a skull fracture some years back. There are a load of very smart and compassionate people on this site and they are always there to listen or answer questions.

Thank you I really appreciate all of the remarks and information from everyone. As I stated I have fibromyalgia four ruptured discs in my neck, ruptured discs in low back and sacral area, costochondritis, Sjogren's, diabetes type 2 and I've had a serious concussion after being kicked in the chest and neck by a horse. There are other things that I'm probably forgetting here I will however end this by saying I am always overheating and it drives me crazy. I have been talking to my doctor about this for 20 years and I've never had it resolved. It gets so bad I feel like I have heat claustrophobia if that makes any sense lol. These past few days I've been feeling overwhelmed emotionally which is not my norm. I was married for 25 years my husband left in 2010. I live in the NE corner of Washington state. I have a limited support system so I'm glad that I found this community I will add more later ...thank you again for the warm welcome.

Welcome angel,
I have low back pain(or so my doctor says), possibly caused by a herniated L5/S1 disc, asthma, migraines, allergies, spina bifida occulta(very mild with weakness in 1 leg only), Osteoarthritis( right knee, left ankle, possibly left hip), keratoconus(legally blind left eye), on the autism spectrum, and a MRSA carrier. Again welcome.
