 Do you find that weather afftects your pain?
 
I just came back from a great holiday down south and I really
 
feel that the warm sun has a great impact on my pain. My two other
 
trips south had the same affect on me.
 
Right now in Canada, the last few days have been milder, 0 to -2 C. and the
 
snow is melting. I am praying for spring to arrive very soon.

I have a love/hate relationship with Spring. I love that the weather is getting nicer and I can start opening my windows again but with Spring come storms. The barometric pressure kills my joints. Cold weather does too but at least I can stay indoors and keep warm, but I can't hide from the barometric pressure!

I always feel better in the summer.

Pressure changes are bad for me too. Winters here are terrible it can be inches of snow one day and sunny and nice the next. All the ping ponging of weather really gets me. Also planes...

Hi Sherry and Desert. Where do you ladies live? have you ever tracked the pressure? My husband was thinking

that there must have been a change while we were in Mexico compared to here in Ontario.

Colorado, front-range. Outside the whole pressure sensitivity thing, the weather is actually quite nice. We get snow enough to be fun while still having the nice sunny days in between. I used to live in Southern California where the weather is much more consistent and nice. I definitely noticed my pain has gotten worse since moving to Colorado.

Sorry for assuming you were a lady desert. Now we know you as Jeff. Yes i bet you get a lot of snow

in colorado. My son would love to go there to watch his hockey team, the colorado avalanche.

Hehe. It's ok, I had never given any indication yet. I started off pretty cautious, but this is such a good group of people that I'm comfortable sharing :).

Oh yeah, it's a great group here.
I have recently met three of the members in person and that
was quite exciting.
I'm glad you felt comfortable enough to share.

We have snow, wind, and dampness that makes the joints ache and creak. Then the sun comes out for a day or so. I agree with the barometric changes.

Barometric changes do affect me too. My hubby calls me his "weather girl" LOL. I love spring cause the days are much nicer and I can get out more, but we get a lot of low pressure systems here in tornado ally (desert can attest to this one LOL) that I feel like I am on a rollercoaster of pain days, I just want to cry!

It was just as bad as when I lived in Wyoming I think. My youngest lives in Minneapolis and he keeps saying "Mom you ought to come live up here!" Ha! Not in his wildest dreams! I HATE winters worse!

Lol! Scarred...my best friend tells me all the time that I am actually better then the weathermen on TV.

Tmj, I live in Michigan near Detroit. Mother Nature has a wicked sense of humor here and I am not quite sure I am liking her at the moment - in February we have had approximately 54" of snow. But our Springs are crazy. We don't get very many tornadoes here but the temps, winds, barometric pressure and rain amounts can change in a blink of an eye.

I've been awake most of the night due to thunderstorms -- and my dog pacing back and forth, scared. Yesterday was a bad pain day, but now I'm feeling pretty good. Maybe ozone helps?

Like others, cold and damp weather is terrible on me. During the past month, when we had a cold snap (I live in an area where they typical daytime high in January is about 50) and snowstorms, I used about 50% more BT meds than usual.
C4-T4 Scoliosis (disk degeneration, stenosis, narrowed neuroforamen, bone spurs)
RT hip and SI joint damage from car accident
Current meds: Ultram ER 300mg daily, breakthrough - hydrocodone 10-15mg, or oxycodone 5-7.5mg. .5mg ativan as needed for sleep.

Oh my,, it's cold there Pam. I imagine the cold there really affects your pain.

What is your pain like if you have been south?

Where do you live Cogito?

We are getting 10cm of snow tomorrow.

Today it is zero celcius.

Well as of a half hour ago we are under a winter storm warning. Sometime between  nine tonight and six in the morning we are suppose to get  between  5 and 7 inches of the nasty, heavy, cold, wet, stuff, and they  are saying we could get up to two inches and hour when the storm actually hits. My larder is well stocked, and I can sit it out, sleeping and  stuffing my face if nothing else! I guess winter has to have one last fling ( at least I hope it is her last fling!) Last week we had record warmth, and it melted all our snow, I had a feeling then that, that was just a teaser and just a way to prerparing us for another  winter blast! Anyway this to shall pass, and I do believe the 13th of March we change our clocks back ahead, and that is a sure sign that spring is coming soon!

I live in north central Missouri. We are under a winter storm watch. Left work an hour early today because the roads were getting so bad. I made it home by being careful and driving slowly...and, I have a four wheel drive Ranger pickup truck with 200 lbs of sand in the bed. My husband couldn't get up the hill to our driveway. He was stuck on the road when I arrived home. So, we started up the Arctic Cat and pulled his car up the hill. Whew! I was glad to get his car off our two lane, asphalt, country road w/no shoulder.

White Beard, It sounds like you live here. I live near Buffalo, NY and we've got a winter storm warning. We supposed to get 5-8 inches, but with mother natured this winter, who knows. It's supposed to start snowing tonight about 3am and snow heavy tomorrow. I dread the pain when the barometric pressure changes. My hubby says that I'm a good weather girl. I can tell him when it's going to rain or snow. I do believe it has an affect on our pain. I am ready for spring to come. I guess everyone else is too except Red. I know you hate spring too where you live. I hate spring because of allergies.

i hope everyone is having a low pain night.

love and hugs
Loretta
