Is it possible to get sick simply because of extreme weather changes?
I think so and not only that but mild weather changes or even sleeping in a different house. How many have had kids get a cold just spending the night with someone who has more drafts in their house or a colder house, period?
i know that with fibromyalgia, I really have a lot of pain when the weather changes. Today it turned from ice cold to slighter warmer and sunny and the pain is stunning. So I imagine that weather can affect all kind of illness and cause them to kick up.
From the research I've read the answer is no. The reason more people get sick during the winter months is the fact that they spend significantly more time indoors with little circulating air.
The same germs are in the air in the summer, you just have less exposure to them due to increased activity and air flow.
