Barometric Pressure - RA

Hi all

I read somewhere that the barometric pressure, I.e. the atmosphere affected Rheumatoid Arthritis. I dismissed this thinking how could the air pressure possibly make any difference. I've had RA for 3 years.

However unusually I felt better once during a warm spell. when i checked the air pressure was 1005 millibars. I downloaded a app to check.

Since then, as well as taking pain killers I have noticed a real improvement. I am now in Spain for a few weeks and the pressure is 1010 millibars. It could also be the sun that helps but I am walking a lot easier now. Still a struggle but better. Strange though my hands are still a real problem.

Maybe it's psychological but I think it makes a difference.

Has anyone else noticed if the atmospheric pressure affects them?
