    Mine did just this past week. All over nerve pain with a drop in barometric pressure.
    I've always thought that I could tell you when the weather is going to change.
    It lasted a day and a half. I was also stressed about taking a trip that I didn't want to go on.
    Interestingly, I listened to my intuition and cancelled the trip. The weather didn't change, but my nerve pain did. It went down 80%.
    This makes me happy, because I can remind myself that it's TMS conditioning.

    Whenever I hear someone say this, I immediately know they have anxiety and/or powerful emotions, causing mind-body/TMS symptoms. In fact, I just went on a vacation with a few friends and it took so much willpower to not say so after one of my pals said they can predict the weather based on their pain levels (it wouldn't have been good timing as we traveled, and this person is simply not ready to hear that right now).

    I agree but god besides me having usually a pain fee night of sleep as soon as I wake or become continuous it’s like I turn on my painswitch for the day and it’s the same with weather even though I tell myself this is BS

    I tell myself, outloud, "I am 100% willing to believe that this reaction is psychological." It helps. There is some part of our minds that is still clinging to pain or searching for symptoms. We must be at least "willing" to fully believe in TMS and tell our subconscious the same, so that it sinks in.

    Yeah I second what MWsunin said. Great insight.

    Can someone explain the conditioning / psychological connection to bad weather? I'm not getting it.

    I guess it is just like previous posters said. There is a post in here about a women with bladder pain that expects she will get bladder pain when she drinks. Someone else said that they conditioned themselves to be pain free before their period. Just psychological connections. For me, I know I can always sleep well at night and so I have conditioned myself that I don't notice anything and my bed is my saviour.
