Many arthritis patients claim weather affects how they feel. Some people with arthritis believe that symptoms of arthritis (such as pain and stiffness) are influenced by changes in the weather. Is there a connection between weather and arthritis symptoms?

I find it interesting about the study of arthritis and high pressure. My arthritis acts up then the pressure is dropping. I know a major storm is coming through when my left knee starts hurting.
