In brief: Bone or joint pain

Can be affected by weather cold reduces blood flow to the skin.
And heat increases blood flow to the skin which can affect the way things feel but the change in weather often is accompanied by a change in barometric pressure. Such as storm front with low pressure which often results in swelling of an injured area. Falling barometer ( lower) can mean a storm is coming , and injury can hurt!
