Sickness Affected by Weather'I thought my head hurt and then it rained the next day,' or 'I'm not feeling well during the rainy season and can't do anything about it,'
Many of you may have had the experience of getting sick on a rainy day or before the weather breaks, such as "when it rains, my old wounds hurt.
You may be thinking, "Maybe it's just a coincidence that I'm getting tired," or "Maybe it's just my imagination," but did you know that it's not your imagination?
Poor physical condition caused by such weather changes is called "weather disease" or "weather pain".
People who suffer from this weather disease or weather pain are more likely to be women in their 20s and 40s who are more susceptible to female hormones
It is said that.
Low pressure in the shadow of poor performanceBut here's a little something that stuck with me.
It's called a "weather disease," and while some people get headaches or get sick before the weather breaks, you don't often hear of people getting sick before the weather recovers.
In addition, some people who get sick because of the weather have a headache or get sick if it's raining normally, but when it's before a guerrilla downpour or a typhoon, they can't help but take their medication. Some people have severe headaches and can't stay awake.
The reason why such a mysterious phenomenon occurs is that human health and low pressure have a big influence on it.
The workings of the autonomic nervous system and dysregulationNormally, if you're in good health, you won't get sick when the temperature and weather change.
This is because we have the ability to maintain a constant state of the body even when the environment surrounding us, such as temperature and weather, changes.
It is thanks to the "autonomic nerves" that the body is able to keep itself in a constant state.
The autonomic nerve is a nerve that is in charge of life support activities such as the circulatory, digestive and respiratory systems in the human body, and it works 24 hours a day even when we are unconscious, such as while sleeping.
When the autonomic nervous system is out of balance, the body becomes sluggish, headaches, shortness of breath, diarrhea, constipation, and various other ailments appear.
If this condition becomes severe, it becomes a disease called "autonomic dysautonomia".
Low pressure + autonomic disturbance causes poor physical conditionThe answer is "low pressure + dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system".
Normally, the autonomic nervous system works to keep the body in a constant state even when the environment around it changes. When there is a change in temperature or pressure, the body unintentionally feels stressed. Then, as you fight against that stress, your autonomic nerves are actively working to balance your body.
However, when a sudden change in atmospheric pressure occurs, such as a guerrilla downpour, a typhoon, or a bomb depression, the autonomic nervous system may not be able to cope with it.
When the human body is stressed, the sympathetic nerves become dominant, and when the exchange nerves become active, they cause blood vessels to constrict and muscles to tense. This makes it easier to produce pain-causing substances as blood circulation tends to be poor.
As a result, you are more likely to experience painful symptoms such as headaches, pain from old wounds, joint pain and back pain.
Prevention and coping strategies to reduce the health effects of low pressureThat being said, you can't change the weather or the barometric pressure.
When that happens, the only way to reduce the frequency of painful symptoms such as "weather sickness" and "weather pain" is to remove and regulate the elements that disrupt the autonomic nervous system.
Let's take a look at how to prevent it and how to deal with it when the pain appears.
How to Prevent Weather Diseases
Since the autonomic nervous system is an innate function of the body, it is of utmost importance that the body's natural functions are properly exercised. A lack of sleep and irregular life can easily disrupt your body's rhythm, so it's important to try to stay regular.
②Don't stress yourself out
In today's society, we are in an environment where stress is easy to accumulate due to work and relationships, and the sympathetic nerves that tend to cause pain may be active. Therefore, to lower your risk of developing pain, you need to have a parasympathetic edge. To get a parasympathetic edge, make sure you consciously make time to relax.
How to deal with the pain
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort, it is important to note that the way you deal with it may be the exact opposite depending on your symptoms.
There are several types of headaches, of which low pressure is the most likely factor to cause migraines. A migraine is caused by dilated blood vessels, so the body should not be warmed up like a tension-type headache. It is advisable to keep a cool head and rest in a dark and quiet place.
②Joint pain, lower back pain, old injury pain
Such pain is not only related to the low pressure, but also to the temperature. You can also tell that cooling your body is not a good idea, as it tends to cause pain when the temperature drops, such as during the rainy season or in winter. For this reason, try to keep your body cool and warm the sore areas with a body warmer or hot towel.
