Yes. I think a lot of people with immune problems, arthritis and muscle aches suffer a lot when the weather changes and especially when it is rainy. I have read that it is related to changes in the barometric pressure. There is actually some research being done on this with people who have rheumatoid arthritis. I know for myself my pain becomes much worse when it gets rainy.
Let us know if you have any other questions. Your duaghter is also welcome to post here too. Take care and I hope you get some relief from the rain soon.
