I'm 28 years old. I have had 6 surgeries on my right shoulder and 1 on my left. I am right handed. I had a total replacement of my right shoulder at 21. I had another since then on both the right and left. In my right shoulder I have been extremly sensitive to the weather as I understand to the low pressure. Sometimes a spot the size of a pencil eracer to the size of a dime will apear as a raised bruise on the right shoulder usual accompanyed by intense pain within 12hrs of its appearence. I have tried different arthritis drugs and all bother my stomach terribly because I am also lactose intolarent ande cannot take the pills with milk. I live in Chicago and during recient visits to warmer states, Nevada, and Flordia I felt much better. My question is which states would be bettter for my wether sensitivity?
