Hey- Have a question for you guys- when there is a change in barometric pressure do you guys hurt more?? I have been in alot of pain today. I went to the rheumy for my normal checkup, and he asked me- Is the pain more severe when the barometric pressure changes? Well- I didn't know! Then, I get on another forum (for another issue I have - Chiari Malformation) and they were all talking about the barometric pressure today and how they were hurting. So- I just try to figure it all out!!! Is it Chiari making me hurt??? Is it lupus making me hurt??? Or is it both??? So confusing!!!! :unsure:

I don't know about Lupus, per se, but my arthritis is killer when the barometric pressure changes, I can really tell. I have a weather dial out on my deck and it reads the pressure, too. Weather folks will talk about high or low pressure systems... when these are in flux, that's when I hurt more.
Hope you are having a better day today,
