Pain Indices

Rachel writes:
As many of you know, I have arthritis and have realized for some time that I am strongly affected by weather changes. I came across this web site last week while looking for weather info. I can't tell you how validated I felt when I saw this "pain index" that measures barometric pressure pain affects on a scale of 1-10 (by zip code, no less), and on that day (a bad one) it showed my area to be a 7. Unfortunately it only covers the USA.

For those interested the web site is:

And Suzanne sends in a link to a UK pain index:
