When the barometric pressure is dropping nine out of ten times I can tell you it's dropping I get very sleepy or have a hard time waking up in the morning. My knees and my left foot and ankle which I have injured several times ache when a cold front is coming in but not all the time I even feel it under my down comforter no amount of stretching makes it better so it must be in the bones.

My dh is the same way. He has 2 bulging discs in his back and had two surgeries. Between that and the ra he is a basket case in this kind of weather. He spends most of the time in bed which is still no relief. He starts eating his pain pills like candy. It's been snowing here off and on all day.
I hope you get some relief.

I do have mild prescription pain pills, but since this is a long term situation for me, I avoid them whenever I can. I have found that arthritis strength acetaminophen (generic tylenol), helps a lot. It 's an 8 hour time release medication.
Aspirin and other anti-inflammatory non-steroid drugs can be very helpful, as long as they are used in moderation. They can also cause internal bleeding if used too often.

One does also have to accept the fact that, as we get older, we are going to have aches and pains.

My old country doctor always said, "Just keep on moving!"

I try to not think of my pains. It hurts too much. Right now my pain is being relieved by close friend and physician, Captain Morgan.
