Walking outside on Tuesday definitely felt a lot different than it has for the past week. The sun was shining and even though there was a breeze, you could still feel the warmth in the air. That feeling may be short lived. While it physically may feel great  and you may hate the cold weather, it turns out that your body may as well.

People complain about their aches and pains then blame them to the weather. Overtime, doctors and scientists studied weather affects on the body. Turns out, the people may have been right.

Some people may test negative for allergies but still have similar symptoms like the sneezing and congestion during weather changes. This is acknowledged by doctors and does have treatment plans. Also, it's known that thunderstorms can induce asthma attacks for some patients. There's the joint pains and migraines brought on by damp weather or quick changes.
 
Over the next few days, doctors said to try to take care of yourselves so that you don't start feeling under the weather. Take general precautions such as washing your hands and not touching your mouth or eyes. Keep blankets in the car in case you get stuck in the cold weather somewhere.
 
Also, to fight getting into a depression-like funk, go to the gym or do whatever you can to stay active.
