Yes, when it is going to rain or raining my joints ache. When the barometric is low also.

I am seriously affected by changing weather. Even when fronts are moving or the barometric pressure changes I can feel it. Once it's cold I'm okay. I don't mind the cold, as long as it stays cold, but when the weather bounces around like it has where I live for the past few months, I have a really hard time. Most of the time I can manage it somehow with OTC medications, a TENS unit, ice/heat (depends on the joint), prescription medications, massage, Pilates, and acupuncture if I can afford it.

OH YES !!! The cold and rain makes my joints hurt like crazy !! I love now that I live in Mesa, AZ because its not COLD and I do not hurt nearly as much.
Yes, I have Rheumatoid and Osteo Arthritis. All my joints ache when there is a weather change especially cold rains. But as Azulvioleta6 states it cannot be used as an excuse. It only gets worse if you are not active.

Yes, but I do not use it as an excuse.
If you keep up with a basic exercise regime, fibro is much more manageable.

Yes, I have bone mets from stage IV breast cancer; even though most of the lesions are inactive, in certain areas, especially my left hip, they really hurt when the weather is changing or stormy, or extremely cold. Weather changes sometimes trigger migraines for me also.
My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

When I was 10 I broke my arm very badly falling off a skateboard (I essentially snapped my wrist in half). Anytime there's a drastic change in temperature, like if it suddenly gets too hot or cold, or if it's humid out, I have very bad pain in my wrist that only started after I broke it.

On rainy damp days I sometimes get an ache or two around my body (shoulder & knee)
5/22/13 12:08 P
Sometimes my hands hurt real bad before a rain or when the humidity is really high
Sometimes I blame it, but I really have no idea if it is the reason.

Most meds for fibro have worse side effects then the pain like death, or lymphoma.... I was on Cymbalta at onetime and it was a nightmare it made the pains in my head even worse. My body becomes a barometer I can tell the bad weather coming in even if I don't watch the news for days. Low pressure systems are the worse, it's a horrible life living in daily pain and those who don't have pain should consider themselves blessed!
Starting to like the new me! Waiting for my garden to come to life!
Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity" -Paulo Coelho Alchemist

Not to me...but to one of my friends. She has arthritis and she says the change in weather is unbearable sometimes. I am sorry to hear about your fibromyalgia. I don't know a ton about it, but can it be managed through meds?
Oh Lord, you have searched me and you know me. -Psalm 139:1
