Does the weather affect your AS?

I'm at odds with this because I'd always thought the weather doesn't affect my AS. However, the older I've got, the more I've started to question if perhaps the rain and the cold makes me feel worse and causes more extreme flare-ups. Anyone else struggle with the weather?

  1. I've been living near the ocean for as long as i can remember... Ever since i moved away i definitely feel a difference just by being away from the sea!.. So yeah, i feel so much worse when the weather is about to rain.. 🙁 I find the use of my heating pad critical during those days!

    1. ,
      Thanks so much for joining the conversation.
      We're glad to hear your heating pad is providing some relief on those difficult days.
      Be well, Doreen (Team Member)

  2. I don't need a stinking weather report. I can tell 3 days in advance when the pressure is drifting.......................... Rick (moderator)

    1. me too! I always say I have have better barometer than the meteorologist

  3. I feel your pain. I live in Florida and I can tell you in advance when it will rain, when it will get chilly, when the humidity is high, etc. I never ends. It goes with the territory.

    1. I hear you. I live in UK and I too can tell you when it's rain or low temperatures. When the weather is like this; my day is impossible. If it rains overnight my morning is like 'Frankenstein' getting up. Pain is off the Richter scale....

  4. I can always feel a barometric pressure change coming, I can tell you we're going to get rain and we get rain.
