If you know you can predict the weather better than your local meteorologist, you’re not alone. However you have probably thought twice before telling others. After all who wants their friends and family or even their doctor thinking they’re crazy or wondering if the pain medication needs adjustments. We’ve heard all our life that people with arthritis can tell you when a storm is coming so why does it seem so unusual that those affected with these disorders can do the same thing. Chiari and syringomyelia is all about pressure right so it only makes sense that changes in the barometric pressure are going to affect you. So the next time you think a storm is coming because of an increase in symptoms, you’re probably right.
