Can You Feel it in Your Joints?

Do you remember hearing from someone that they can feel it in their knees that it’s going to rain? There might be some truth to that! A study has found that many people living with arthritis and other chronic pain conditions can have increased pain with certain kinds of weather. The research showed that on damp and windy days, people have a 20% greater chance of experiencing more pain, and that the most painful days for study participants were also cold. Now, when looking at your morning weather forecast, you may be able to better plan your activities in expectation of greater pain associated with certain weather.
