When it rains it pours. We’ve all heard this old expression, right? But for a long while now those who physically suffer pain when it rains have undoubtedly had a rough time of it because we are going through a rainy season of sorts. Countless people suffer with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, or knee or hip pain. And I’m certain there are more that I’m not aware of. Because we have limited movement while enduring any of these, rain and cold weather makes you feel much worse. Some of these maladies mentioned limit us in our jobs as well as fund-raising activities, charity functions, physical outdoor games with the family, get-togethers with friends or family, volunteering, or chores at home. Many of us probably had great health in our younger years and we may have taken our good health for granted. This being the case with me having Fibromyalgia. And I’m sure if you look back you can remember when you were pretty healthy, too.

When it rains, or the weather turns cold, body movement is hampered and is minimal at best. Everything is in slow motion. And what do the experts tell us? Keep moving! Well, right now we don’t feel like moving, thank you. You experts do the moving—we’re on strike! Yep. As of right now. That’s tellin’ ’em!  Sometimes lying down alternating with a heating pad and ice pak may give temporary relief, however, there are times when nothing works, and you don’t feel this is even your body. It’s like you’re having an out of body experience, so to speak. Okay that wasn’t funny. And there’s nothing funny about this type of pain. So what do we do? We follow our doctors’ advise, pray, maybe take a hot relaxing bath, or try the things listed above. We also need to ask for help from others. Others will chip in and help with whatever needs to be taken care of once in a while. Someone who is living in the home, or neighbors or friends because…Baby, the rain must fall.

I’ve found joining a support group is very enlightening. Getting all the information about what you suffer from is a big help, and in turn you can help others by telling them what works for you.

I’d love to know what you suffer from and what remedies work for you.

Thanks for viewing.
