Hi Lili, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Pain in muscles or joints can be a sign of an underlying disease. But for some people, the aches and pains can occur when the air is cold. This generally occurs in people with the condition or predisposition to fibromyalgia, arthritis, and migraines. Unfortunately, until now doctors and scientists have not agreed on the exact mechanism of this condition.
Among the several theories put forward, the one that gets the most support is the theory of barometric pressure. Barometric pressure or air pressure is the mass of air around us. When air pressure drops, body tissues expand, causing pressure on the joints and causing pain. Usually people who experience this have nerves that are more sensitive to stimuli than people in general.
So far, because the causes are still being debated, the treatment given has not been uniform. But in general, patients are asked to avoid cold air as much as possible, including turning off the air conditioner, wearing thick clothing, or doing light exercise to warm the body.
Apart from that, it is not impossible that you are experiencing other conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) or Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) depending on your age, weight, gender and history. So our advice is that you continue to check with your doctor, especially an orthopedic specialist, so that you immediately find out whether it is true that your condition is caused only by cold air or there are other reasons and immediately get the most appropriate treatment. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
