can anyone tell me if the weather affects there illness?

  • a weather front moves in, my sciatica will tell me about it as soon as the pressure drops. When the front gets on top of us, my back will start back hurting. Fortunately, that is the only time my back gives me a fit. Been wondering if it's the metal back there.
  • Most definately. Especially when it starts to get cold, I tend to hurt alot more. I dread the winter anymore, because it just means feeling more pain.

  • Were having a slight cold spell here in the NW and my meds are not close to touching my pain.Thank goodness for my rice bag and lots of blankets.
  • hiya,

    thankyou all for your replys, i just wondered if i was the only one xx

  • Weather kills me. I tell people I have a weather rod in my back...I feel rain coming a day before it hits. Cold is the worst. I feel like I am freezing from the inside out!!

    So yes...weather plays a big role in my life. I can not stand the nagging pain it can throw me in.

    Just a suggestion...in cold weather i have found out that if you use those over the counter back heat patches-you can get at your local pharmacy...can save you from that real bad pain you can get when you start to feel the freeze set in.
  • Your not alone in this one for sure.
    As you can see!!!

    We have rain and a temp drop coming from Hanna UGGGHH. And Im in Upstate NY.
    It will be here Saturday but I started feeling it last night Thursday. More achy, 1 knee was driving me nuts.
    And awoke this morning with more back pain then usual.

    The humidity believe it or not even bothers me.
    I can handle high temps, but the humidity can go somewhere else !!

    So yeah we kinda are like a weather map. Who needs to watch the news?? :D
  • Hiya cathy,

    Hey thats a good idea, will certainly try out those patches.
    Thankyou for that.
