eyes  My daughter is sixteen and has cfs, fibro and immune dysfunction.  I'm always amazed at how miserable she is during rainy weather.  We're in Maine and all it has done lately is rain.  Anybody else having these triggers?

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.

The weather affects my health before I realise it. I wake up feeling all crappy and no idea what the weather is like outside. When I finally get up, I notice it's raining outside. My body knew it before I did. It's so weird. Snow is a killer too. Any type of storm keeps me down. I have read some articles about it and have seen other people talk about having the same problems. It's so strange.
