Re: Why do some people's bones hurt before it rains?
The barometric pressure drops preceding bad weather. You will feel it in your bones because there is water inside your bones.....and it takes at least 24 hours to be equalized to the reduced atmospheric pressure in the air.



This is it. Drop in barometric pressure causes expansion from the reduced air pressure. Like makes them swell and then they hurt. Not always actual visible swelling but am sure you know what I mean.


Then why doesn't going up a tall building in an elevator or flying in an aircraft hurt the same way? The differences in air pressure are greater for the elevator/airplane scenario?

Just for the record I have had five knee surgeries and numerous broken bones, and cold, wet weather is miserable. Why? Beats the hell out of me and my orthopedic surgeon.



Barometric pressure is not affected by heights other than aircraft height.





What the hell does that mean? Are you saying that if I take a barometer to 18,000 feet it will read the same as at sea level?



No, I am saying that going up in a building, even a very high rise, will not affect barometric pressure ~ the pressure reading WILL be affected once you reach altitude, such as those achieved by aircraft.

The pressure difference 100 feet in altitude is negligible.




So if I take a sensitive barometer to the top of a tall building it will read the same as it read when on the street? Is that what you are trying to say?

Ever look inside an ordinary aneroid altimeter? Guess not.

More or less. Let's say a 20 story building (tall in my area) the difference may be measurable with a good barometer. A 100 story building, yes, the pressure would be lower. But in most buildings, what folks notice is the SPEED at which the altitude difference is traveled. If you walk up the stairs the changes in air pressure would probably not be felt, as the change happens gradually.

I am familiar with the mercury tube barometers ~ 31 inches.

I'm not trying to get into a pissing contest here ~ what I'm saying is that in normal 'habitable' heights where we reside, barometic pressure differences in static weather conditions are not that noticeable.

Re: Why do some people's bones hurt before it rains?
For as long as I can remember, my grandparents always used to say that they knew it was going to rain because their bones were aching. I always blew it off as BS. It wasn't until my mid 20's that I started experiencing the same thing. I thought it was an age thing, but my 12 year old daughter experiences the same thing a few days before it rains.

I've also read that this happens when someone has experienced a fracture or break in a bone, those bones can become hyper-sensitive to atmospheric pressure changes, which is true for me as I broke and fractured several bones in a severe accident several years ago.

Just wanted to know what you guys thought about this.

I judge the coming weather by my wife and sisters allergies...they know before the weatherman and are very accurate. A lot of times their grounded for a day or two.

Myself, with numerous broken bones from accidents only have minor aches and pain before it rains.

But, taken into account your pain, your grandparents and daughter with my wife`s and sisters suffering...maybe there is a correlation between broken bones and allergies.

What I mean is your excellent question, " Why do some people's bones hurt before it rains? " there maybe a simple answer, perhaps, insulation.

Though not conclusive, in itself, but it may be an indicator

Kind of like Multiple-Sclerosis, an inflammatory disease, with the deterioration of the Myelin sheaths.

Myelin, is made up of 80% fat and 20% protein.

Maybe, allergies sufferers, arthritis, and people with broken bones have in common, with the approach of rain might be a lack of insulation...that is a lack of FAT insulation at the location of the suffering.
