You may dismiss it as an old wives’ tale, but researchers in the U.K. are trying to find out if theres a correlation between weather conditions and chronic pain. More than 9,000 people in the study were told to track their pain each day with an app on their smartphone (of course!). http://www.allsaintsportsmouth.us/laurenwardspace/2016/09/21/following-are-some-of-them/site webThe project is called “Cloudy with a Chance of Pain.” The app captures and records weather data where each person is located based on the phones GPS. Each participant then records their level of daily chronic pain. While no specific conclusive results have been published just yet, there have been some interesting findings. When more days of sunshine were seen across London, Leeds, and Norwich earlier this year, the amount of time that the participants felt severe pain decreased. In June, more clouds, rain, and overall wetter weather increased. As youd expect, the level of pain across the board increased along with it. Many more studies need to be done, and more people are needed for them.
