Let's analyze the main symptoms of weather pains in more detail:Headache.
One of the most common manifestations among weather-sensitive people of all ages, most often appears before or on the day of the sharp change in the weather.
Headache is caused by vasospasms, which do not have time to rebuild themselves under a sudden change in the weather, or by the 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.Drowsiness, weakness, and dizziness
most often appear before the rain (also known as rain pains
), as at this time the barometric pressure decreases and the oxygen in the air decreases - feeling this shortage, the organism tries to save energy. Usually, these symptoms pass quickly, as the body is able to adapt to these weather changes easily.Arterial hypertension
is widespread among elderly people or people with chronic diseases of the cardiovascular system during an anticyclone, or, in other words, when the barometric pressure
increases and changes blood pressure.
Especially big jumps in blood pressure
are observed when the anticyclone is accompanied by a cold snap. Also, an increased humidity, combined with strong gusts of wind, can cause hypothermia of the body. As a result, there is vasoconstriction (narrowing of the vessels) of the face and other limbs, which may lead to an increase in blood pressure.Joint, bone, muscle and body pain
often happens with surges in barometric pressure to people who are overweight or have any previous injuries.
Fluctuations in barometric pressure cause changes 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. All of these creates pain, burning and discomfort felt in the joints.
If such sensations appear during changes in the weather, then it is a clear sign that degenerative processes have begun in the cartilaginous tissue of the joints, and this can be a symptom of a number of serious diseases, such as:
Important! Symptoms of weather pains can be felt along with vascular diseases, heart and spine diseases. This symptom must not be ignored - you need to consult a doctor for a more accurate diagnosis and selection of the necessary treatment regimen!Apathy, bad temper, aggressiveness
- arthrosis - dystrophy and degeneration of articular surfaces and cartilage damage. It is manifested in crunching, pain, limitation of limb mobility - contracture (muscle contractions), which can lead to the micro-shortening of the leg or arm;
- arthritis - inflammatory lesions of the joints of various origins. It manifests itself as general sickness, 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 spinal nerve roots. 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 spinal disorder, when the intervertebral discs, and then the bodies of the vertebrae themselves, joints and ligaments lose the ability to function properly
during weather jumps are most often widespread among people with high receptor sensitivity.
This condition, when the mental state of too impressionable people collapses during sharp weather surges, 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 the current mental state of a person.
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 begins to depend on the weather in the window.
