    I have been asking around and several people told me that when you start getting aches and pains because of the rain it is a good indication of arthritis in the making i dont know how thrue this is but i unfortunetly got some big time pain in my fretting hand (Left Hand) during the second day of this nasty rain storm hitting the North East USA.Anyone else getting any aches or pains due to the weather?
     
  2. Not sure if it's the rain, or the cold, or a combination of both, but my hands always feel kinda weird in this weather. There's a weird tightness in my fingers. But either way, it doesn't seem to affect my playing. I'm guessing it's mostly normal, I'm still young and I hope that my my hands have a lot of life left to them. I'm actually more worried about my hands getting dry and cracking and bleeding due to the cold. Pretty painful and annoying.
     
  3. it is acid rain man!

    I get it in the cold. I'd see a doctor, they haven't cured my wrists but they have made them better

    Not so much the weather, just age. Us 40'ish guys hauling that frickin gear to gigs. Fortunately with age comes more disposable income and the ability to downsize a bit without sacrificing sound quality.

    Damn. I wish I had been this smart and had extra cash at 22.

    Yeah. The medical community calls it TMB (too many birthdays) or occaisionally, OFI (old fartitis)


    It gets worse. Welcome to the other side of the hill, pull up a chair.

    Nice Bassett Hound mrpackerguy.
     
  6. Yeah, I've got the old man back now. You know, that whole "living like I wasn't going to get old when I was a kid" thing.

    Some days, rolling out of bed and standing upright is the biggest challenge of the day.









    I'm not kidding.

    When I see the bottom of the leaves on the oak tree in my yard, I know the rain is coming. When the rain comes, my surgically repaired knees start to ache a wee bit.

    I'm in the same boat as you. Cool humid weather gives my new knee fits.

    Is getting these aches and pains any indication for arthritis later in life?

    Not joint aches and pains, but I get sinus headaches if the pressure does too much changing.

  17. We tried those out when we bought our bed frame 2 years ago. I really, really liked it. I prefer a stiffer mattress. We got one of those "memory foam" pads. Don't waste your money.

    I had surgery last year for a torn rotator and a torn bicep on my left side. The recent run of cold/damp/rainy weather here in the NE has been pure torture. I'm able to get through my workouts and have maintained by strength/weights, but the rest of the day is pure hell at times. Even though my injuries are healed, I've seen pictures of the inside of my shoulder and it looks like a grenade went off in there. Surprisingly enough, my heriated discs have been very quiet lately(knock wood). Keeping the joint mobile seems to be my best course of action thus far.
