    What?? I thought that was one of the reasons for the TKR. Alas, I have no suggestions, sadly.

    As far as I know Nothing.. my knee before TKR I could tell you when it was gonna get colder or if it was gonna rain. but right after my TKR ( it was Jan 2014 ) I hurt something awful.. but lately it hasn't been that bad, if I go to the lake and get to much sun it will feel tight and sore.

    best of luck to you

    Get your knee in a hot tub in the morning and then wear leggings, use pain patches or use licocane and/or Aspercreme lotions.

    Move.  Really.  I had a hip replacement in 2009 in New Jersey.  I became the family's weatherman.  Not fun.  So I moved to nice, cheap, warm Texas.  Zero problems since.  Really.

    If you are in a place with lots of ice, snow and cold, you're in for a looooong ride.  Keep it as warm as possible or...move.  Maui, Tahiti...no, they'll be underwater soon enough along with the whole State of Florida...  I hear there will be some nice beachfront property available in Las Vegas as soon as California falls into the Pacific...  No...really...  Keep it as warm as possible or find a warmer climate.  I live in the countrty west of Fort Worth.  San Diego is always 74 degrees but very expensive.  Austin is beautiful with great music.  I moved and it worked out great...

    Barmeter change seems to be the triggering dynamic. The explanation ( simple for) is that the body protects swollen and damaged parts by building a cushion of fluids around them thus creating the swelling. I don't have much trouble with any weather when things stabilize but when its going on I can be miserable.

    Once the capsule has been breached, there's no going back. Change in baro pressure will always hurt. Same as Chico. I know weather is changing better than a weather man

    I have had both knees replaced. When weather is rainy or snowy or when it is GETTING READY to rain or snow, my two knees feel GREAT!🙌😊😁🙌

    UNFORTUNATELY, my fingers, elbows, shoulders, lower back, hips, and ankles feel AWFUL!😱😲😵

    A heating pad helps my lower back. Ibuprofen works OK on the rest of my aching parts. IcyHot roll-on helps withy lower back when I need to move rather than just sit.

    Have you had knee replacements?

    Do you have arthritis?

    Certain foods can cause more inflammation. Check which ones on the list (check on Internet) that might be YOUR troublemakers.

    My consultant told me that the weather has no effect on arthritis pain. Absolute rubbish, as these responses prove.

      When the barometric pressure changes, it affects the pressure in your joints. It affects the pressures in your body period actually. Depending on what kind of arthritis you have, it will affect it. My doc retired at age of 78. Did orthotics, hand surgery his whole career. I went to him just over 30 years. He used to tell me all kinds of stuff about your body and baro pressures. It esp affects you if you had traumatic injury or surgery. A joint is a capsule. Once it's breached, there's no going back.
