Pain and Weather Apps Help

Apr 23, 2017 11:53 AM

Hi everyone. My pain started at 14 with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. Cold damp days and low pressure systems caused me a lot of pain. So I moved from the NorthEast to the Southeast and things were better until huricains hit! lol

A horrific car wreck 8 years ago has left me all broken up and disabled. Brain injuries, mini-strokes, seizures, cluster headaches the works. A friend with brain injuries recomended an app. It cost like $10 I think, it's called {eWeather HD} It has a lot of cool stuff and information. My wife got it as well. We still notice that low pressure sytems and drops in barametric pressure was causing me pain. No surprise there. But she started seeing a pattern in something else....

With my mini-strokes, seizers, cluster headaches, dizzyness and other health problems she notice I was having them at the same time geomagnetic storms were happening. (geomagnetic storms are rated in KP values 0-9 5-9 are actual storms So once values started showing 5 and above she noticed i was having issues.) The app shows the geomagnetic storm KP value.

In resarch it can cause a wide variady of issues including pain. 2 other apps I got that were free were {K-Index Monitor} it constantly shows the KP value in the upper Left corner of your screen and can alert you when values exceeds KP value of 4. The second app is called {Magnetology} This app is using NASA and NOAA combind perdiction for KP values for 3 days ahead. So if you are triggered by KP values it could help you plan accordingly.

Sorry this is long but wanted to help you all the best I could. If you find more information would love to hear from you. Or if you are effected by KP values would be intrested as well to hear from you. I dont know what to do to help stop any of this... (maybe wrap myself in aluminum foil? lol) If you hear of anything please share.
