    they say that people with arthritis can feel it when the weather becomes damper.
    how is that, when the skeleton is wrapped-up inside the body?

    It's not just people with arthritis...I have two plates in my arm due to a major football injury and it hurts during certain weather.

    It has to do with barometric pressure.

    Two plates in the arm for a football injury to his cranium. Cleared up his speech impediment but now all the refrigerator magnets stick to his arm when he walks through the kitchen.

    I have a funky vascular problem in my left hand and when atmo pressure changes it swells up. Air pressure generates weather thus i can generally tell when its gonna rain

    Found this, talking about arthritis in particular, but I'm sure flare ups of other injuries would be caused by the same reasons.

    There is a possibility that a lowering of barometric pressure results in an imbalance in our bodies. This could result in expansion of fluid around joints creating more internal pressure and subsequent increase in arthritis pain.

    thanks, interesting that low pressure on the outside can seemingly produce in pain in the joint. it makes me wonder why it doesnt occur on airplanes. surely experiments have been carried-out to esablish whats going on one way or another..........
    if it is actually about lower pressure, perhaps a pressure suit would help severe sufferers? or some sort of special pad which could be adhered and pumped-up? there may be an invention there somewhere?
