I know that I always feel worse when a front comes through.

I am not sure if it is the rapid dip in barometric pressue

followed by a rise in it....

Also, I find colder weather harder on me.....

Hugs,

Geneal

Having a rough day of it. Didn't consider the weather.

But, a storm is passing through.

Does this mean when it is gone I will improve?

I have just been noticing that I usually feel worse when a front comes through. Sometimes nothing happens... but most of the time I feel worse.

For instance, I had a small herx last night before I went to bed, woke up this morning with tat 'relief' after a herx feeling and was doing pretty daecent throughout the day and then the front started coming through this afternoon and my health is falling so.... could be!

I know one thing is that Sprinf and Fall changes are hardest on lyme disease people. Bugs get very active. (this is what I have heard)

Hi Byron,

This is something that I have noticed as well. I can tell you when a storm is going to be severe just by my joints LOLOL : )

I know it's not a joke though ouch... I also tell my clinics that they will experience this as well. For the most part they don't make the connection until I bring it up. [bonk]

I deal in hyperbaric pressure : )

That front came through here yesterday. My daughter was hurting for several days before. More vicodin consumption than the usual ONE/day.

Cold weather and/or rapid drop in barometric pressure = increased symptoms for me.

Yes, it is the dip in the barometric pressure.

This impacts water and oxygen and we ARE mostly water and our "liquid" blood is carrying oxygen.

Little complex, so scan over and pay attention to the bolded sentence below:

"Solubilization of Oxygen from the atmosphere into water

The solubility of oxygen in water is achieved by physical solution which does not involve chemical interaction between the compounds.

The solubility equilibrium is a function of the following factors:


the concentration of oxygen in the gas phase at the water-atmosphere interface

the attractive molecular forces between water molecules and oxygen molecules

the kinetic energy of the water and oxygen molecules

Physical changes in temperature

and pressure

have a pronounced effect on the solubility factors
."

Basically...as I understand it...low pressure = less oxygen available and this maybe

already a problem in specific tissues.

My wife, friends all ask me if it is going to rain. I have a better success rate then the local weather stations.

I had frontal changes, they effect me with major headaches. Living in the Kansas City it is constant.

Anyone found any relief to this?

We have a nor'easter here today. I could feel it coming for days. Everything can act up -- it's like the candida, lyme, and metals are having a little party in my body! (only I'd rather be sleeping)
