Do You Suffer Barometric Pressure Pain?
What Can You Do To Get Relief?
Many people report that they suffer arthritis barometric pressure pain. It was noted by Hippocrates in 400 BC that there was a perceived link between illness and the weather.
To date there do not appear to be any conclusive studies linking arthritis pain with the weather but arthritis sufferers will often tell you differently.
Arthritis barometric pressure pain may possibly be linked to low barometric pressure, usually associated with cold, overcast wet conditions.
When the weather is miserable then it tends to dampen our spirits. The result, often is a perceived increase in our arthritis pain. There is also a possibility that a lowering of barometric pressure results in an imbalance in our bodies. This could result in expansion of fluid around joints creating more internal pressure and subsequent increase in arthritis pain.
