“My joints really ache today – there must be rain in the forecast!”
Many people associate damp weather with aching joints. Some people are very confident in their perception of the apparent association while others question if the association is “all in their head”.
A recent study involving 222 patients with hip arthritis investigated the association between weather and clinical symptoms. They found that barometric pressure and relative humidity influence perceived arthritis symptoms.
