Other Conditions[edit]

Among other conditions should be listed Alternobaric Vertigo which Dorlands Medical Dictionary says is a true vertigo which afflicts the patient when the barometer falls, in which case the patient also falls.

Other[edit]

Weather pains or weather-related pain classified as Other specified adverse effects not elsewhere classified, is a phenomenon that occurs when people feel pain, particularly joint pain or migraine headaches correlating with changes in barometric pressure and other weather phenomena.

Classified by whom?

The first comma needs to be balanced by another comma before either or or classified. —Tamfang (talk) 04:55, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Tone of this article is wrong[edit]

The tone of this article is wrong making it sound like weather related pain is real, whereas the evidence (including citations made here!) shows it is likely all or mostly confirmation bias.

A typical example: Claim in lede: "The majority of people... report feeling pain when a weather front is approaching."

Whereas the cited reference says: "Many different weather variables have been studied, but only three (temperature, relative humidity and atmospheric pressure) have been studied extensively. Overall group level analyses show that associations between pain and these three variables are close to zero." (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1016/j.ejpain.2010.05.003/abstract;jsessionid=552B063743BB478D2EB9AB77A9FA9ED4.f02t01)

In other cases the referenced citations do not support the material and should be removed.

I am attempting to rectify this situation with this edit. RobP (talk) 19:57, 22 October 2016 (UTC)

Merger Proposal[edit]

I propose that Meteoropathy be merged into Weather pains. The majority of its content overlaps with Weather pains and it should be easy as they are both small articles (a stub and starting article). Houdinipeter (talk) 13:27, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

The first is about any symptoms. The second is just about pain. The second is a more common concept than the first. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 03:11, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

Merge Seems to me it is the same subject. Prob weather pains should merge into the Meteo article. RobP (talk) 21:10, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

  • Support merge Weather pains is the common term in English so would recommend merging to that. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 05:29, 15 October 2017 (UTC)
  • support merging here. Jytdog (talk) 20:38, 15 October 2017 (UTC)
