Sensitivity To Weather Changes

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I think i am starting to notice a correlation between how i feel on a day to day basis and the ever-changing Ohio weather. On warm sunny days i feel pretty close to "normal" and in good spirits. Then the next day, in typical Ohio fashion, the temperature will drop 30 degrees and it will be wet and yucky outside. And of course at that point, my sense of feeling "normal" goes right down the crapper. Depression and brainfog kick in full effect, my bones and joints start to ache and feel stiff, and nothing i eat seems to agree with me.

Does anyone else seem to notice extreme changes in how they feel based on changing weather?

Could this be Candida??


Diagnosed Celiac positive through blood tests: 1/03/11

Not sure about candida but I certainly have sinuses that act like barometers. Whenever the weather changes suddenly from sunny and clear to cloudy and/or rainy my sinuses go crazy. It's like the worst hayfever attack ever and nothing helps. The attack lasts all day and a good night sleep usually sets me mostly right again.

It's been better since I went gluten-free but it's not gone. I think it's a symptom of my generally inflammatory state and I have hopes that it will resolve as my body heals. Only time will tell though.

Gluten free since April 6, 2011 ~ Also sensitive to coconut, coffee and food dyes

Joint pain, mouth sores, back and neck pain, migraines, stomach pain, chronic fatigue, ADD and depression are all gone.
Wishing I had been diagnosed before celiac robbed me of the cartilage in my toes and the 3 babies we lost to miscarriages.

My mum even remembers me from the age of 1 being affected by severe weather changes! (Try living in rainy england!) I found out it has a name! SAD syndrome, a decrease in happy hormones when the sun is gone makes a huge change in everything for me, depression and extreme brainfog kicks in! I brought a light, expensive over here but maybe not over there, its a daylight lamp, find them online. Put it on when your feeling low :) Its awesome.

I know how you feel about the weather! I live in New England so it changes almost hourly. Before I was diagnosed with celiacs, I was told numerous times I had Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Depression. I'm a pretty upbeat person so it didn't make much sense to my family. But after my diagnosis, I still find that my stomach messes up with extreme changes in weather. My doctor tells me it could be due to the added stress on my body, or the unconscious eating habits I develop while it's miserable outside. The SAD syndrome sounds about right to me. My doctor told me to stay positive even during inclement weather and be more aware of it.

I think the joint pain is just something that comes with crappy weather. I've had 2 surgeries (knee and foot) and they always feel sore when it gets damp out. I usually take an NSAID and try to move on with my day.

I hope you're feeling better. Try not to let it get you down!
