Do the changes in the weather affect how your body feels?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Day before yesterday it was 70 and sunny here, and today the wind is gusting up to 35 mph and it's down in the 30's with lots of rain/snow. My head/sinues just go nuts when the weather changes.........

How about you?

Same here - also the aches extends to various joints. Mom has it down to almost a science. It affects her about 10 hours before the weather front actually arrives. I just love those 8 hour OTC pain relievers! (Aleve for example.)

Your eyes made something like this?
About me, sometimes but I´ll take some aspirine and try to forget about it!

Yeah, similar situation here in Toronto. This weather just makes me bloody depressed, and I don't like going out. We've got this slushy rain/snow mix happening, but no freezing rain, thank God! I also get headaches with a drastic change like this...

Oh yes, I have arthritis (Yes and I'm only 24, grrrr!) so when the waether is cold or rainy, or suddenly gets cold, I get all stiff and achey like an old lady! I luurve warm weather! Remind me why I'm living in the U.K. again and not Australia with my aunty?!

No i don't feel a change like you've mentioned, apart from what Carrie said about the sunshine making you feel better

I get a migraine in the spring due to sinus cavity damage and my ankle that I shattered hurts like the dickens when a big storm is coming in.

I do, when it's wet and grey I get slower. The sun really affects me. I do much better.

My nose runs when it's cold, but mostly I get grouchy.

The only changes I really feel are super bummed out when winter comes and I know I'll be losing my tan soon, and ecstatic when beach weather comes back again (like it has been this week - low 80's, sunny, with mild breeze)!!! :insert beach bum smiley here:

Yeah, there are some creaky joints, and they do let me know when the weather is changing.

the main physical issue is that winter makes me gain 20 lbs, lol. i walk a lot so when it's cold i just gain weight. now it's warm and i get to walk again.

i'm thinking of getting a light box for next winter, though. as much as i'm a night person, i apparently need SOME sunlight or i get really stressed and down. the lack of walking also makes it worse.

i used to have problems with the scar tissue in my left foot (bunion surgery and bone graft), but once they took out the pins, all was well.

edit- though, rapid weather change gives me a beautiful pulsing headache.

Rapid weather changes give me a horrible sinus headache. Naproxen barely takes the edge off of them.

My body is ok but my mood is not as good when it's too hot or if I see the sun for too many days. I love cloudy days and I'm more motivated and just happier when it's overcast outside and cooler.
post #18 of 25
My body definately can predict the weather. I have had several injuries and have arthritis and nerve damage in my back and legs. When it starts getting cold I start to hurt alot worse than normal. I can't take the hot weather either, I turn into a real grouch. So I guess there is no pleasing me.

I'm prone to doing stupid things on my inline skates. As a result, I really buggered up both of my rotator cuffs. Being a male, I refused to go to the doctor, although for my left one, I couldn't lift my arm the next day and most of the next week. Anyhow, whenever there's a drastic weather change, or there's a storm a-brewin', my body lets me know.

Let's see... Well, because I don't sweat as much when it's cold, I go to the bathroom A LOT! Does that count?

Me too. This is about the only thing.....I always know when the barometer is dropping - nothing helps. Here in Seattle they say newcomers always are in shock when they move here to live...they get zapped with the "Seattle Crud" for the first 3 years or so. Everyone seems to have had it.

Its a connective tissue disease that affects the muscles in your body.The only way I can explain it is you feel like you have the flu w/o the fever.Its alot like arthritis except it affects your muscles instead of your joints.

I too am only 24 and have "old lady's disease" (i have had arthritis since I was 5). So yes, my joints are easily affected by weather change. I can usually predict when it will snow or rain.

My artheritus is worse in winter,but since I"ve been on medication for pain,things are so much better!
