    Thumbs down Human Barometers

    aka WEATHER STATIONS R US

    I didn't know which forum to put this in, but decided on Fibro. According to the Weather Channel radar map, there's a storm brewing across the river, & it might as well be in my joints, muscles, & brain. However, my glass teapot nautical barometer is still flat. Am I more sensitive than it is???

    I figured I'd start a thread for those of us afflicted with this baffling condition. If only I didn't need to go back & correct every other word I've just typed, I might feel more reassured. Sometimes, I just walk/sit around & moan out loud & that seems better. It doesn't make me feel any less pain, it just reinforces what's left of my waning sanity.

    Weather Channel says barometric pressure is 30.09.

    Beader, I have had headaches weather related for years, and they would not let up until it rained . The pressure would just build and build until I wanted to scream, the barametric pressure always does this to me. I have a brain aneurysm , and had a couple small strokes so spelling is not good for me but I just keep going. Yes we are weather people, glad to know there are others that can relate . My neuroligst said he has several patients that have said the same thing. We are not alone ! Ging :)

    since I live in the lovely northwest where it rains more than it shines my daily mantra is a word I cannot use here! does it help? well of course not but it releases my anger @ constant pain somewhat!

    have had a "new" pain lately,not sure if from fibro or arthritis (what difference does it make anyways?) the back of my hands! now this is going too far!! might have to come up with a new swear word!

    OK once again I seem to have attracted some images I had nothing to do with!

    Sorry, Buttons, but I personally don't see any images. Do you still see them? Are they hiding somewhere?

    Ging, I get all knotted up and sort of antsy before a storm, and when I finally give up to do my errands despite the weather, the minute I go outside, it begins to rain. My body must unconsciously sense the shift, because the raindrops start as soon as I back the car out of the driveway or venture out to the mailbox. Weird. However, if I'm already outdoors during a windy build-up to a storm, I enjoy it, almost relish it, and stay in the wind until some serious precipitation begins.

    this was the second time I had unkown images under my post. and yes they do go away soon,it's just weird & NO I haven't imagined this.

    this flu bug/cold has made every bone in my body hurt. luckily it's improving despite the constant rain/wind storms going on. the damp does not do a body good!

    I use Capzasin roll- on for my knees,hips,even back of my neck. this stuff burns & isn't cheap but it helps me so I keep it handy & never use on my hands.

    I also sleep on a heated mattress pad,turned to low while sleeping. I turn it on high to get the bed warm for a few hours before bedtime.

    The heated mattress pad sounds heavenly! I have a thick matress pad made of that pressure-sensitive foam whose name escapes me at this brain fog moment. But I also have a moist XL heating pad that lives on my recliner. They're pretty expensive & only available at medical supply drugstores, but sooo worth it! I've worked my way thru 3 already. Aaahhhhhhhhhhhh!

    Sher, don't know why I didn't think of a medical supply place for a heating pad! very hard to find in drugstores these days. how expensive is expensive? my mattress pad was pricey too. I think $40??

    next on my list is a foam mattress!

    I think the heating pad is from Thermaphore and costs $60-70 but lasts for years & covers your entire back. My cousins who have had plenty of back surgeries said their doc recommended it. You might check online at places like drugstore.com that offer free shipping on anything over $25. The foam mattress topper was from a store that's gone belly up -- maybe Linens N Things or Bed Bath & Beyond. But hey, that could be online too now. EVERYTHING is available online these days! It's a miracle!

    I should warn you that the pressure sensitive mattress topper stinks to high heaven when you first open it. They squash it into the box so tightly that you can't believe it will spread out to cover whatever bed size you want. At first, it's like sticky Turkish taffy -- remember that stuff? Then it poufs to about 2 inches thick & you keep it under your regular mattress pad. It definitely heats up under your body & you have to get used to shifting around a bit during the night & tossing off your covers. But it gives you the back support of your mattress along w/ the comfort of egg crate plus.

    Cool ions in atmosphere

    Hi, first time posting here. I have lifetime of migraine which stopped being isolated incidents in my teens and became a chronic and daily continuous headache now for 40 years, and then fibromyalgia for 18 years which as many of you know will make any migraine tendency worse.

    Can't do much about the pain, certainly can't change the weather but am considering moving somewhere like a desert with constant high pressure and low humidity. Anyone suggest a place other than Siberia?! There must be areas of the states like this.

    My neighbours ask me what the weather is going to do the next day... I am so sensitive to it. Worst for the head are big changes in barometric pressure - up or down - but humidity plays its part and here in rainy England there's a new weather front coming in just about every day so it's always changing and hard to pin down the exact combinations which aggravate the pain.

    All I can say is I know my head feels crushed and wants to implode when barometer is dropping and I get really spaced out then want to explode when it is rising too fast. I also get a pain like a sharp spike up my nose that gets worse as the clouds build. As the rain starts running so does my nose as my sinuses drain, then I get some relief.

    I have a weather station and it always agrees with my symptoms though my body registers an incoming front before it does. I can feel it coming 8-24 hours ahead.

    Anyway, at least some doctors now recognise this phenomenon. They didn't when I first talked about it. I recently came across a long but good explanation of the health links to the flow of positive and negative ions and storm formation. I can't manage a weblink (glitch in its site or my brain) but you can find the article under Resources in the quantumbalancing.com.

    Hope blue skies settle over all of us in another time and place!
