Yes, when the weather is damp & or humid I start having more pain.
In 2004 I was recruited to try an experiment while they filmed it for a News Program documentary. The point was to see if weather really makes a difference to arthritis sufferers as well as migraine sufferers. I was put into a flight simulator (Canadian Air force Testing Facility in Toronto) with Valerie Pringle (TV celebrity) and an airforce personnel who suffers from migraines.
The goal was to take the flight simulator up to 30,000 ft (about an 11/2hours to reach 30,000 then the same time to decompress) all the while increasing the humidity.
I was checked out by the Airforce Dr and in I went. By 15,000 I was rubbing one knee then shortly after I was rubbing both, soon my shoulders were aching and long before 30,000 ft I was being taken out into the quick decompression chamber (about 15 minutes in a very small cramped room, alone) when I came out I was shaking, I hurt all over, I then took 2 Oxycontin 10mg instant release capsules.
The migraine sufferer made it through the whole experiment saying he had no sign of a migraine... however I was told later that by evening he was in ER for pain shots LOL!
So the documentary aired...I had my 15mins of fame.
Now the Canadian weather network has a "Aches & Pains" report and you can see if and why your RA is problematic over the next 24 hours...Check out www.theweathernetwork.com and check for Aches & Pains under the Health & Environment tab.
Sorry I went on & on
