Mine is the air pressure changes that come with it.. When I go in to the Chiropractor, my spine is usually on the opposite side to be adjusted after a change in the barometer. And the pain intensifies.
that is so true. yesterday the pressure was dropping and I hurt. this will be my first winter with OA in my knee....I'm not looking forward to it. today is injection #2 of my 3 OrthoVisc shots...Hope these help as next is a TKR.
Yes. Rain or snow storm means extreme pain for me. Also, for some odd reason, I can't tolerate heat either. My body swells a lot in heat but it doesn't relate in any way with the aches and pain I experience. Turning the air condition on and sitting infront of it reduces the inflammation. Thus, hot sunny weather isn't for me either :|.
if I didn't hurt enough, my 2nd injection of Orthovisc really hurt. I almost couldn't walk out of the exam room. it's eased...but between these shots and the humidity ouch! I've always been a winter person, beats me why, maybe because Texas is hot so much...but I dread this winter.
I feel like my body is a barometer since my accident. I literally could tell since yesterday afternoon that it was going to rain today. Wait until the winter, the cold especially on below freezing days is the worst. This is a very common complaint of pain patients, says my chiropractor.
it was 98 here in north Texas yesterday, it's storming now and won't get out of the upper 60's. last night around 3am on the pain kicked in full force. I haven't had that intense pain in a month or so. these weather changes are rough. Since my accident I can predict when it'll rain. This will be my first winter since I got hurt, I hear the cold hurts...I'm not looking forward to it. What helps when it's in the cold of winter? anything? Just curious
it went from hot & humid, to cool and damp. both make me hurt, and I just learned a 90% chance of severe storms overnight with another cool front. this being my first Fall, and winter after getting hurt...I can tell winter will hurt. As I'm new to cold weather pain, what helps? thanks:-)
I understand what you're going through. It's been rainy and cold the last few days or so, and my joints/spine/ribs have been giving me "what for." I have found that layering my clothes can help. Another thing I do is drink hot coffee/hot chocolate, or eat hot broths. I find that the hot liquid warms my body on the inside and it has actually helped my pain a little bit.
I'm having the same problem here in NY. It's going to rain for the next 3 days and my pain level is skyrocketed to a level of 9. (I usually deal with 7-8 ON meds). Hope you all get some relief and some much needed rest.
It's a love hate relationship... too hot hard to breath due to asthma, too cold same thing but because the pain of Costochondritis make it painful to breathe. Plus cool moist increases pain in every joint/nerve I didn't know I had. I was diagnosed with lupus and fibromyalgia the two love attaching me.
