Is anyone with osteoarthritis affected by the weather?

I have severe osteoarthritis. My medicine doesn't seem to work, and today the doctor changed it, so I'm hoping for relief. But I find that at bedtime, my affected joints offer up a new kind of pain, not really in the bones, but in the surrounding tissues.
This only occurs when the weather changes severely. Is this normal? Should I expect my medication (it will now be Arthrotec) to control that kind of pain as well? (I've been on Celebrex for years, and NEVER had any relief of osteoarthritis OR weather-influenced pain.)
What works for pain from severe weather changes?
yes the weather does make your arthritis hurt much worse and the stiffness is awful!you aren't be your self !we all suffer at the mercy of the weather!different meds work for people !you will have to keep trying until you find one ! docs gave me ultrams for pain from fibromyalgia and this seems to help me some what! good luck& God bless
In three little words: YES YES YES !!! I can actually predict the weather! My hubby has this too, & is the same way. Also, watch & see if the full moon also affects it, does mine! Did you mean Celebrex doesn't help at all or just when you have bad weather? Was wondering why you take it for so many years if it doesn't help?
I was on Celebrex and some others but I know many who suffer and they seem to be able to tell you exactly what the weather is going to be, I wish I could tell you that there are medications that seem to remove this symptom but there are none that any of my fiends or me have found success with. seems like it is one of those things you have to live with, if you notice a difference please write in and allow us to know meanwhile please take care, We are here and if you find that you need us we are a group that is willing to help if we can
I USED to have osteoarthritis - four years ago. I used a WONDERFUL herbal product called Everflex by Nature's Sunshine. The length of time it should take this to work will depend on two things: whether you have ever done an in-depth colon cleanse (this takes time) and how severe your arthritis is. We absorb our nutrition through the colon walls. We have come so far from pulling organically grown, non-genetically altered food out of the ground and just eating it, most of us in the U.S.A. have coated the walls of our colons with a thick lining of residual waste, which obstructs the intake of the nutrition through the walls. Cooking, canning, and other processing destroys the fiber (which would normally keep the walls of the colon clean and able to receive nutrition) and also the digestive enzymes in the food which we also need for health digestion.
It only took me a month to get rid of my arthritis, but I have done some in-depth colon cleansing AND I had only had the arthritis for a few months, so it was not very bad yet. ONE OTHER CAUTION: Drugs are stringent and herbs are gentle - never take drugs within an hour of herbs, as the drugs may overwhelm the power of the herbs and cause them to not work. If your arthritis is severe, you will also benefit from another Nature's Sunshine product called Skeletal Strength. After taking it for eight months straight, as suggested on the bottle, my very bad back was MUCH better and my teeth had stopped deteriorating. My teeth and back have been vastly improved for twelve years now.
I Work in HyperBARIC medicine so I'll keep this simple. Atmospheric pressure changes when the weather changes..inside your joints the pressure doesn't. Therefore..Using a scale of 1 through 14... 7 being normal..(that is in your joints).. when the barometer drops its less than ... a 3 or 2.. your joints think the 7 is higher..When its clear and dry out the pressure is a 12..the pressure in your joints is still a 7 but the High pressure doesn't hurt... only the low pressure.
