Do weather changes affect arthritis?
A common claim is that changes in weather (e.g. low pressure system, colder, damper, etc.) can cause pain or increased pain. This often comes up in the context of old injuries (e.g. "My old football injury.", scar tissue, etc.), usually to joints, however other parts of the body can be affected.
While there has been some research conducted into this claim as it specifically applies to arthritis, the full scope of the claim is much broader and covers general scar tissue, migraines, and other generalized aches and pains.
As such, is there really any evidence to support any sort of joint pain or discomfort associated with changing weather conditions?
