Sometimes that's the case. If you have arthritis, changes in barometric pressure during storms can affect how your joints feel. When it's cold and rainy, you may want to stay indoors, meaning you don't get enough Vitamin D. But only you can ultimately answer that question, and there are solutions to help you if you do feel pain during bad weather. If you have arthritis, a heating pad helps sometimes. If you have low Vitamin D, you may eat fortified foods, take a multivitamin, or eat foods naturally rich in Vitamin D like tuna or egg yolks. Talking with another person often helps, so feel free to reach out here, too!
It's quite possible. For some people, pressure changes can negatively impact conditions. For others, it can be cold temperatures but then with the other extreme others can find hot weather to be problematic. Humidity levels can be another factor, again with both high and low levels being possible triggers. There are other environmental factors that can also come into play, such as smoke or other pollution which can be blown in or cleared away by air currents. There are also some people whose pain isn't affected by the weather at all. Paying attention to weather information and your day to day pain levels can help you become more aware what factors affect you.
