Why does weather make pain worse at times?

Rainy weather sometimes makes my pain seem worse.

True for me

I live in Florida so when a tropical storm or hurricane comes through its absolute pain.. I think it has to do with the barometric pressure.. kinda like a severe change in barometric pressure can push a very pregnant lady into labor.

Barometric pressure for sure

I notice this too...it sucks

My rheumatologist says it's the change in barometric pressure. I live in Ohio and it's constantly changing! It's horrible!

The humidity in GA has been bad. We had a heavy rain Sunday and yesterday as the sun heated up, the air outside was oppressive, smothering! It's going to be hot again today but without the humidity. It's very hard for me to breathe outside with my asthma. I try to stay indoors during extreme heat or cold. Heat makes my muscles ache, but cold makes my bones ache. I wish I lived where it's 65-85 year round, and gentle breezes. Oh well, life isn't perfect... but at least I can still dream & imagine despite the fibro fog! 😉 Lol 🙏🌼

Yes the low pressure makes your joints contract.

Rain doesn't affect your joints just feels like it. It's reason it rained . That's what causes the discomfort .

It always does for me

Either way it hurts right lol

For me, it's what comes with the weather,not the weather itself that effects me. I love rain! But it brings mold, and ear infections. I dislike the sun, but it brings dust (one of my worst allergies) and heat that makes me slow.

I bought a Sunni watch....barometer function just for knowing when the pain will come lol..

Just the change. Is finally clearing up, and it feels like rain is on its way. Had our first clear cloudy day, I'm so happy! I was up all night though, my body was just figuring out how to cope with the smoke.

The humidity makes my pain so much worse. Not much to do though!
