Does the weather affect your AS?

I'm at odds with this because I'd always thought the weather doesn't affect my AS. However, the older I've got, the more I've started to question if perhaps the rain and the cold makes me feel worse and causes more extreme flare-ups. Anyone else struggle with the weather?

  1. I too never used to think my condition was affected by the weather and got a bit confused when people mentioned this to me! Although over the last year I started to notice it a bit more. For me it is mostly when there's a drastic change in weather, which in the UK tends to happen a lot as our summer sun never seems to last longer than a few hours!


    I wonder if there is anyway to prepare our bodies for any change of weather?

    1. I can always feel a barometric pressure change coming, I can tell you we're going to get rain and we get rain.

      1. I feel your pain. I live in Florida and I can tell you in advance when it will rain, when it will get chilly, when the humidity is high, etc. I never ends. It goes with the territory.

        1. I hear you. I live in UK and I too can tell you when it's rain or low temperatures. When the weather is like this; my day is impossible. If it rains overnight my morning is like 'Frankenstein' getting up. Pain is off the Richter scale....

      2. I don't need a stinking weather report. I can tell 3 days in advance when the pressure is drifting.......................... Rick (moderator)
