My Chiropractor told me that barometric pain is very real and there is a simple explanation for it. Usually, when a storm front is coming the barometric pressure drops rapidly. The fluid inside the joints are still at a relatively high pressure and the vastly unequal pressure within and without the body results in that unmistakable pain. People with joint damage, arthritis, scar tissue from broken bones and torn muscles, plus those with inflammatory conditions are very prone to the pain caused by rapid changes in barometric pressure.
A year or so ago I was at work when I was struck with unusually intense pain. A co-worker saw my grimace and asked what was wrong. I told her I was hurting worse than usual and had a feeling a big storm was on the way. She laughed at me and told me to look at the sky; it was blue and clear. Less than twenty minutes later the sky suddenly turned black and within a couple of more minutes we were in the midst of a downpour with violent lightening. This gal kept pointing at me and telling how I predicted the storm when there wasn't a cloud in the sky.
We are expecting storms sometime after midnight, I think I'll do a salt pull before going to bed. How much time should I wait between the salt pull and bedtime?
I really appreciate your post, you may have saved me from a lot of pain and suffering tonight. (and my liver thanks you for an alternative to Aleeve :)
