weather change killing me

Sep 28, 2014 2:31 PM

My whole body is in pain to excruciating pain. Does the season change Torture anyone else?

Sep 28, 2014 2:54 PM

Yes! Breathing becomes difficult. Body achess.

Sep 28, 2014 2:58 PM

pain triples all over. I dread the cold weather each year

Sep 28, 2014 6:26 PM

I live in Florida and the rain is killing me!!

Sep 28, 2014 6:48 PM

it sure does. I'm in north Texas. my pain doubles

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.

Sep 29, 2014 10:23 AM

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 :|.

Sep 29, 2014 6:24 PM

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'm heading to Texas on Friday :)

Sep 29, 2014 7:48 PM

sorry about your injection. hopefully it's for the good! I have fibromyalgia and I've been researching lidocaine injections and infusions. I'm hoping maybe for some relief.......

Sep 29, 2014 8:23 PM

definitely. I have allergy induced asthma, is get impossible to breathe, and my sinus, and neck muscles start spazzing.

Sep 29, 2014 10:53 PM

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.

rainy uk for me, but I find a heated blanket is my savior! honestly helps tonnes!

Oct 10, 2014 9:18 PM

Yes....The season changes, rain, cold, etc... my pain level is usually over 8 out of 10 ON medication. when you factor in inclement weather.. I can't tolerate it.

Oct 11, 2014 12:57 AM

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

Oct 12, 2014 5:52 PM

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:-)

Oct 12, 2014 6:20 PM

make sure you layer! the cold is not fun... layer layer layer! hot baths, heated blankets, and long johns!

Oct 12, 2014 8:16 PM

thank you so much:-) I will definitely layer up this year.

Oct 13, 2014 8:10 PM

omg it has been rainy and cold here in Iowa and I'm in hell and very uncomfy!

Oct 14, 2014 1:02 AM

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.

Oct 14, 2014 4:59 AM

Every time the weather changes hot or cold all my joints ache. Especiall the surgeries. L4 l5 s1 is the worst one sciatica goes nuts.

Oct 15, 2014 12:39 PM

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.

Oct 15, 2014 6:06 PM

Front coming through here in Florida, and a very hard day at work! I feel for everyone!!

Oct 15, 2014 7:20 PM

My pain doubles on rainy days. I'm not looking forward to winter.

Oct 16, 2014 7:06 AM

speaking of this- a weather tracker on this site would be good!

Oct 16, 2014 10:54 AM

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.
