Is it just me or does cold weather make chronic pain worse? Since winter started I've been aching much more. That's along with the other pain I have such as shooting pains etc. It seems that's been the case since I've been dealing with chronic pain. Now we've got a bitter cold snap and all the places I hurt are aching more. It's driving me crazy. I mean I was cutting sweet potatoes last night and it took twice as long because, I had to keep stopping to go sit down. I don't know if it was the angle I was holding my head or what but, my neck was really hurting as were my T and LS spine. I get so, frustrated when I can't do something such as cut up sweet potatoes. Today I'm going to try sitting with my heating pad and a blanket on me to try to get warm from the inside out if that makes sense. I don't know if it will help but, I have to at least try. Does anyone else experience more pain with cold weather?
