Forecasting from One's Bones

Anecdotal evidence points to a link between weather conditions and body aches; however, the medical community has yet to reach a consensus on the issue since studies have yielded mixed results. Data from one recent study suggest that increased humidity and barometric pressure exacerbate joint pain and stiffness. For every 10% increase in humidity, osteoarthritis sufferers experienced a 1-point increase in pain on the Western Ontario and McMasters University Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC).

This final statement is very important!


" just because findings didn't reach statistical significance from the researchers' point of view, they can be significant from the patients' point of view."

I do agree with you! The people want a research to relieve the pain!

So, the experts have finally caught up with the rest of us.

I thought exactly the same thing. Though, I guess, if being honest I must admit that my experience would be anecdotal only and it does require a real trial to obtain valid results. Still . . .
