Does the weather affect neuritis?

Doctor's response

Weather can influence a number pain problems, most commonly those affecting the joints, for example, arthritis. We are all familiar with someone with a bad knee or a bad back being able to tell when bad weather is coming, presumably because the low pressure is increasing their joint stiffness. However, problems with the nerves are not usually thought of as becoming worse with cold or rainy weather.
