Pain And Changes In Weather...Am I Alone????
I used to see a DO that adjusted my back. He always told me that when the barometric pressure dropped your body will definitely feel it if you have arthritis, injuries, etc
He was an awesome man and didn't retire until he was almost 80.

Thank you for the reminder about the impact of barometric pressure. For those of us with neuropathy, we can be grateful for the advanced notice. When I open my eyes in the morning, I can pretty much tell the barometric pressure. If it is high, I can jump or even leap out of bed, wanting to be outside and walking. I certainly don't want to waste a "good" day.
When I am woken up in the morning with what I call "heavy" pain in my legs and sharp pain in my hands and arms, I know that the barometric pressure is low. I try to modulate my expectations of the day to those of tolerance and minimum activity.
@wishingtobepain, do you remember what your DO might have recommended to prepare for an encounter with low barometric pressure? How do you prepare for pressure changes now?
May you be safe, protected, and free from inner and outer harm?
