Seasonal Effects

Pain changes with the seasons and weather affecting many different pain conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, and joint pains such as back, knee, elbow and shoulder pain, as well as nerve pains. When it is cold may feel like it goes right through you, affecting everything in your day and night.

Barometric Pressure

This is likely to be from changes in barometric pressure, and other factors when temperatures go from warm to cold or dry to damp which can trigger changes in the joints. Less air pressure surrounding the body can expand muscles, tendons and other tissues. This can lead to pressure leading to pain.


Winter can be a more difficult time when you have a pain condition, as the cold often induces us to be more still. On cold damp days, you may not feel like going for a walk or moving much at all. Also on icy days staying at home as you may be worried about falling or when you walk and may be very tense causing more pain. It is important to keep moving even if you don’t manage to get outside, you could stretch and walk up and down stairs.
