In my area today, the forecast is a "5" for moderate aches & pains. This pretty much jives with what my knees told me walking up the stairs today. The "regular" forecast is noting a 50% chance of rain. In my experience, I'm always a little stiffer/achier on rainy days, even though I've been doing pretty well otherwise lately.
Some studies have shown weather does not affect arthritis, other studies have shown that it does. Obviously the Weather Channel is jumping on the latter bandwagon (and I totally think they should be!).
What's your experience? Can you predict rain by the creaking in your joints? Does hot weather make you feel worse? Or are your pain levels pretty constant regardless? Love to hear your thoughts!
