Title: Raining knees ??
Post by: Beth_T on August 19, 2004, 07:58:15 PM
Hi Everyone

Does anybody's knee hurt when it rains??

Mine hurts something chronic about an hour before and for a few hours after.  :'(

What is it?  Atmos pressure changes?

It's been raining on and off all day in the UK today and to quote the old rhyme "rain rain go away, come again another day!!!"  In fact go away and don't come back! Grrrr!!  Knees!!!!

Luv Beth x

I can predict when it is going to rain based on how my knee and ankle are feeling that day. My husband calls me his little weathe woman. LOL. I think it is the atmospheric pressure that does it.

Hey !!

Agree here I know when's snow and rain coming.
For me the problem is when it's too much humidity out.

Hey there!

I can definitely tell when the barometric pressure changes even the slightest bit.  More than the pain in my knees though is the pain in my wrists and ankles....I guess it i due to the much more severe arthritis I have in them.

Lol....I have never been wrong at predicting rain yet (but thank goodness we don't get too much in sunny southern California as I don't know if I could deal with the pain....It gets HORRIBLE!!!).  I have had about 14 years of practice in the predicting weather department, I have been doing it since I was 12.  My husband still gets kinda wierded out by it....Hehehe.

Hi there,
Also in wet, damp horrible England - knee definitely knows when its going to rain (which is most of the time! ::) Hope you enjoy Sweden, I lived in Finland for a short time, if Sweden has the same kind of climate, they tend to have more definite 'seasons' than the UK - ie its known to be very wet in the Autumn. All the best to you

I can also tell when it's going to rain, or snow... I've broken my arm, my ankel twice and my wrist and when it rains, I prefer to stay in bed because I ache all over.  It sucks!

Hey !!

Yes ,it does rain in Sweden and when it starts it really RAINS !!! I live in a area quite near the coast but not near enough to call either coast climat or innerland climat so therefor we often have by the best weather in our country. Yesterday f.i. had to call my husband to pick us up just a little bite form home. We had been out giving the birds bread by the river and took an icecream and suddenly it started thunder,rain and storm. My poor son had to bike home cause he couldn't leave the bike there. But after changing clothes and a cup of hot chololate everyone was ok.
A QUESTION; you who suffers from rain have you chronic inflammation ? Cause I believe it's this which hurts when the rain comes for me. I have also nervpain, but that feels differently.

Hugs nettan ::)

I can tell when there is going to be any extreme change in weather.  Rain or snow or a severe drop in temperature cause an aching pain that wont go away.  Extremely severe weather(ie: a tornado, severe thunderstorms that cause flooding, pretty much anything that the national weather service puts warnings about) I can prdict with scary accuracy within about an hour before the warnings go out because the pain is so sharp and severe that it knocks me down.  My husband always tells me to trust the forecasters and not my knee but then always tells me afterward that I was right again.
