Sorry I wasn't here yesterday and missed your post. I spend Christmas with loved ones. We welcome you!
Changes in the weather, even "fronts" that move in can raise havoc with painful joints and old injuries. It's now a proven scientific fact that the effects of barometric pressure changes on your body can and does increase your pain. That was once thought to be an "Old Wife's Tale." Now there is actually research published in the journal Pain, where they found an association between weather and chronic pain. There's no solid consensus among researchers as to the cause - but the leading theory is the barometric pressure.
So yes Dee, pain is often increased when the weather changes. Sometimes I feel it too - other times not so much. It's the very reason some seniors or those with chronic inflammatory conditions move to places like AZ.
I'm sorry that you experience chronic pain too. You'll always find support here! Thanks for dropping by our PM Forum. I hope you'll do so again soon.
I certainly feel the bolted in plate in my leg when it gets cold. I feel every bolt/screw in it sometimes, and its been about 20 years ago. So yes, temp can make a difference for some of us.
Merry Christmas my friend! I am happy to see you. Thank you so much for answering.
I have never had pain in both ankles before and the only thing different is a change in the weather.
Thank you so much
I meant to add - You did post in the right! :o)
Thank you so much! I knew I had asked on a bad day. Thanks so much for Answering. I woke to painful ankles. It was so odd I thought I would ask. The weather has been crazy, really warm, chilly, warm again.
Our weather changed last night. I don't have arthritis - but I have owies! ;o)
I felt that weather change. We've been unseasonably warm, over 80 on Christmas. It's still warm today but had storms move through last night and my broken body felt it. You are not alone sweetie!
