Why does colder weather or high altitude decrease nerve pain?
My husband was diagnosed with intercostal neuroglia at Mayo and many surgeries done at Barrows over 16 years now. We live in AZ so the heat, humidity, dew point (we assume these are the factors) increases his pain/spasms but when we go to cooler places to visit like MN or even Flagstaff, AZ his pain is minimal or even disappears in MN. Doctors say there’s no evidence that weather affects nerve pain but we see it. MN he had NO pain at all back in June but warm there with humidity and dew point similar to Yuma, AZ so baffles us, maybe it it being in higher elevation area or barometric pressure but when we check pressure, it is same % as here in southern AZ?? Does anyone have a source or lead to figure out why my husband’s pain disappers in MN then returning to AZ, he falls to the floor in nerve pain spasms?
