    It’s a medical fact Mick. Broken bones can feel the change in weather. Not sure if it’s air pressure or humidity.

    I am usually ok during the day when I am working but sit down for half hour after work and I feel like I need a good oiling like the Tin Man in Oz.
    That's anytime of the year.

    there must be a natural remedy to help , I,ll have to do some research ,reading a book now about water really interesting most peoples illness and diseases come from years of dehydration and drinking a couple of ltrs of good clean water per day can reverse many of the issues of today like diabetes, arthritis,blood pressure,it naturally regulates the body's systems

    @mick partington When I last went for treatment at the European School of Osteopathy, the fella treating me was in the process of writing a thesis on the benefits of water and our back/spine when taking it. That was about five years ago. So there must be something in it.
    I drink about 2.5ltrs of water at work in the winter. More in the warmer months.
    When I get home, I drink more water but this time it has hops in it :biggrin:

    I must say though, Mick. My water is fizzy water. I can't drink still water.

    When I force myself to drying big glass of water first thing in the morning before coffee my fingers are less stiff on the jobs.

    I drink tea and coffee but drink a pint of water with my evening meal. I'm a fast eater so need the water. I have a real problem making it to some jobs in traffic with my weak bladder. I could not drink water with breakfast. It's a simple fact as you get older you start to get pains. Gee, I do. Real agony. Feet. Elbow. Back. Neck, and 3pm some days I'm ready to nod off. Out comes the red bull, but that can give me a headache sometimes. Your not suffering alone. Real lucky if you don't hurt. I don't mind winter. The summer heat I can't cope with.

    Don’t wait till 3pm, after you’ve eaten lunch the body’s digestive system is going flat out, using all its resources, And that’s why we get tired about 3.

    a kip in the van gets harder in the winter :zzz:

    my knees used to click and have trouble getting up after doing skirting boards, until I started taking glucose sulphate tablets 1 a day, and about 5 years ago my brushing shoulder started to ache, and got really bad last year where it restricted movement ( caused by work) so I had physio, and got sent to a specialist that injected my shoulder whilst scanning it and it has been fine since. its a deffo age thing
