Does weather affect your pain and/or discomfort level? 


  • Cold weather especially.
    Have to wear my farmer insulated gloves.

    Welcome to Spine-Health

  • Opposite here.   I cannot tolerate heat/humidity.   My hands swell,  and I break out in diffuse rashes on both arms and my neck/chest area.   Then I get sore all over,  and it's usually the end of my day after that.

  • At the moment (11 weeks post-op acdf) I struggle with the wind - if it's really windy (like this week) it hurts my neck to walk outside. It must be the posture leaning into the wind or something...
  • Since  my surgery, my body temperature regulator in the heat, seems to have been disconnected!!!  Wet hair and face seems to be the norm and definitely not something I like.

    You mention the wind nz1025 and I do not go out now if windy as I do not have the ability to stand against the wind without extreme pain in my lumbar and neck

    Not so much that the weather bothers me, but the change of seasons generally puts me in a mild flareup for about a week.
