Let's analyze the main symptoms of weather pains in more detail:Headache
. One of the most common manifestations in meteo sensivity people of all ages most often occurs before a sharp change in the weather - its deterioration, or, conversely, when a bright sun appears.
It is caused by vasospasm, which does not have time to rebuild under a sudden change in the weather or congestion in the veins of the brain. Most often, the pain is localized in the back of the head or in the temples and may be accompanied by dizziness and nausea.Arterial hypertension
most often manifests itself in the elderly or people with chronic diseases of the cardiovascular system during an anticyclone, or, in other words, with an increase in atmospheric pressure.
Especially strong jumps in blood pressure are observed when the anticyclone is accompanied by a cold snap, since an increase in humidity, combined with strong gusts of wind, can cause hypothermia of the body due to the excitation of a special section of the central nervous system. As a result, there is a sharp narrowing of the vessels of the face and limbs, which can lead to an increase in blood pressure.Pain and aches
in muscles and joints often appear with surges in atmospheric pressure in older people who are overweight or have any previous injuries. Fluctuations in atmospheric pressure cause a change in pressure in the joint (the joints are filled with synovial fluid), as well as irritation of the nerve endings of the cartilage tissue and receptors - it is because of this that pain, burning, and discomfort in the joints appear.
If such sensations appear during a change in the weather, then this is a clear sign that degenerative processes begin in the cartilaginous tissue of the joints, and this can be a symptom of a number of serious diseases, such as:
Important! Symptoms of meteorological dependence can manifest themselves along with vascular diseases, heart and spine diseases. This symptom cannot be ignored - you need to consult a doctor for a more accurate diagnosis and selection of the necessary treatment regimen!Drowsiness, weakness, dizziness
- arthrosis - dystrophy and degeneration of articular surfaces and cartilage damage. It manifests itself in crunching, pain, limitation of limb mobility - contracture (muscle contractions), which can lead to shortening of the leg or arm;
- arthritis - inflammatory lesions of the joints of various origins. It manifests itself in general malaise, intensifying in the second half of the night and in the morning, local hypothermia, swelling, a feeling of stiffness and limitation of joint mobility;
- sciatica - inflammation and compression of the roots of the spinal nerves. It manifests itself in pain along the affected nerve roots and the nerves formed from them, impaired sensitivity, sometimes in movement disorders;
- osteochondrosis is a disease of the spine, in which the intervertebral discs, and then the bodies of the vertebrae themselves, joints and ligaments, lose the ability to function normally.
most often appear before the rain, since at this time the atmospheric pressure decreases and the oxygen content in the air decrease - feeling this shortage, the body tries to save energy. Usually, these symptoms go away quickly, since the body is able to quickly adapt to such changes in the atmosphere.Apathy, negative mood
, aggressiveness during weather jumps most often manifest themselves in people with high receptor sensitivity. This condition, in which during sharp weather surges, the mental state fails in overly impressionable people, is officially recognized as one of the types of neurotic disorders and is called meteoneurosis.
It should be noted that, to a greater extent, the deterioration of well-being occurs not so much because of the vagaries of the weather themselves, but because of a psychological factor, such as catastrophization of thinking.
In other words, a person inclined to this type of thinking, imagining the outcome of an event, as a rule, sees it in an unfavorable light and his health and mood begin to depend on the weather outside the window.
