Body aches are out of control!

Glad to hear the Adderall XR is working better for you ((Kelou))

I wanted to share a couple articles that discuss the relation with FMS, Arthritic pain & other similar pain's relation with the weather & climate:

Influence of Weather Conditions on Rheumatic Pain:
J Rheumatol 2002;29:335-8

These results support the belief that weather influences rheumatic pain, albeit in different ways depending on the subjacent pathology and subjective weather sensitivity. This influence may not depend on weather conditions of the previous or following days, indicating that climate would not be a pain predictor and vice versa

Weather conditions and complaints in FMS patients:

Patients with musculoskeletal disorders, including fibromyalgia, often state that
weather conditions modulate their complaints.
We tried to relate the subjective symptoms of pain, stiffness, sleep and mood in fibromyalgia patients, to objective meteorological factors. Correlation analyses did showed no relation between the subjective complaints and the meteorological factors. The symptoms pain, stiffness and fatigue, however, showed a strong intercorrelation.

It is often said by fibromyalgia patients, as well as by patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), that certain weather conditions worsen their musculoskeletal complaints. The effect of weather conditions on rheumatic patients has been studied incidently , but the results have been contradictory. An objective study for weather influences
in fibromyalgia patients has thus far not been reported. We tried to relate the subjective symptoms of pain, stiffness, sleep and mood to objective meteorological
Environmental Stressors:
Weather change with barometric pressure change, cold drafts, dampness, lighting, and noise are all reported to be aggravating factors. Many individuals with Fibromyalgia identify that certain types of artificial lighting or irritating noises will really set off their muscles. A cold draft from an office air-conditioner, a movie theater, or restaurant may precipitate an acute flare of Fibromyalgia even though we are completely relaxed and having a good time. We find that many individuals with Fibromyalgia develop an early intolerance for swimming in cold water. Most Fibromyalgia patients seek out warm pools and hot tubs. Fibromyalgic individuals will often feel coming weather changes when the barometric pressure starts to drop and find that cold, damp weather, fog, rain and snow then aggravate their symptoms. Many individuals find that trying to camp out will aggravate their symptoms. A change in climate may have some therapeutic effect, but I find that very few individuals with Fibromyalgia are willing to give up friends, families for a warm dry desert climate.
It seems to back up what our bodies were already telling us <sigh>
Thot you each would be interested in reading these along with the validation
