I totally agree with the others responses. I have felt like a meterologist for years. I can usualy predict the weather two days ahead of time if it's going to rain or snow. My husband is the same as he has fibro too, & we just huddle up with our heating pads on these miserable days. It does help if you can keep moving, but I totally undestand what you are saying. You are definately not alone...

Absolutely!! I lived in Puerto Rico for 15 years and then Florida but I recently moved to Chicago over a year ago and all my symptoms just sky rocketed since moving to Chicago. Still when I lived in the warmer climates my body changed with the months and it is always more painful in fall winter and spring no matter where I lived. Changing had a lot to do with it. Maybe air pressure or something influences the bones and muscles. You would think that they would figure out what it is so they can turn it OFF!!!

Hello. It is a real medical condition know as weather sensitivity syndrome. I've had 5 spinal fusion back surgeries, severe arthritis in my spine and fibromyalgia, amongst others. My orthopedic surgeon sent me to a specialist. He is the Dr that educated and diagnosed me with weather sensitivity, I always have the worst unbearable pain when it rains. I never new it was a real condition until I met with him. He has written many books and specializes in rare and unusual conditions. He lectures all over the world. His name is Dr. Swartz out of piedmont pain and rehabilitation center in Greenville SC. He has a website where u can find all information on this condition and many more. Good luck and I hope this helps. Stay strong in mind and spirit. God bless.
