Good Evening and Happy Sunday! I hope y’all have had a nice and pleasant weekend. It always amazes me how fast the weekend flies by! I hope y’all were able to rest up and are prepared for a new and hopefully amazing new week!
Do you notice increased pain when it rains? Have you ever wondered why the rain can be so soothing to hear, but yet cause all you SO much additional pain at the same time? Well, I of course became so curious to get some real true answers considering all Mother Nature wants to do right now is rain I had to do a little of my own research.
After reading on several different websites including https://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=52133, I have found it is all pretty much due to barometric pressure. When the pressure in the atmosphere is low, clouds and rain is much more likely. Dampness has a tendency to increase our pain and stiffness because of the reduction of pressure in the atmosphere which allows the bodily fluids to move from blood vessels to tissues and in turn causes swelling and pressure on the nerves in those tissues. Also it causes an increase in fluids on the affected joints. Pressure on the nerves and joints will naturally cause an increase in pain and stiffness
Let me just ask, how do you handle these rainy and painful days? Does the rain cause you more pain and stiffness? I try to stay inside, but what about tomorrow when it is going to be raining once again and I have to leave the house for work? I just tend to keep my trusty heating pad with me at all times and it helps some, but it is not as magical as I would like it to be!
