Osteoarthritis, here (talk about really cutting into the collecting!) - my Dr
explained wx-related pain thusly: Lower barometric pressure is less pressure
on the body and its fluids. This means fluid within our joints can expand
more. The expanding fluid causes pain or discomfort in some people - thus,
the phrasing like "weather hip" and "forecaster's knee".
