I am miserable with low grade pain in my hips and legs. I know it's due to low barometric pressure, I've experienced it for years but lately it seems worse.

My question is, if you have experienced this have you found anything to help, ie aspirin or tiger balm type stuff?

I'm gonna try both.

Baths usually help but it's too hot for a hot bath.

Have you tried any type of glucosamine/chondroitin products? The docs say it doesn't work, but I can't live without it for my rotator cuff tear. I use Phoenix Nutritionals version, Joint flow.

Apparently you have never experienced this.

Or to start scuba diving.

I don't get this, but many many MANY of my patients do.

Several of them have told me that Tiger Balm helps.

I always know when the weather is gonna change, because the air has a clean and spicy scent....

Scuba diving makes me claustrophobic

I put on so much Absorbine Jr. that it filled my Crocs. That and two aspirin seem to have helped. Either that or a front went through.

I have experienced pain when weather changed, as it tends to do in Michigan. The weather here is a very fickle troublesome sort. But I know why I have pain in those spots, so that helps at least.

What part of my head do I rub the Tiger Balm to make my barometric change migraines go away?
