Cloudy With a Chance of Pain is a citizen science project which is trying to find an answer to the age-old question: "Does the weather affect pain?"


If you have a chronic pain condition, such as fibromyalgia, you can take part by entering how you feel on a daily basis into a smartphone app. Over time this builds into your own personal diary of symptoms, which the app stores along with a record of the local weather. This information will be combined anonymously with that of all the other users of the app to provide a huge amount of data for investigation. Its creators hope that this project will provide real insights into the widely held belief that our symptoms are influenced by the weather.

If you don't have a condition, you can still help by looking for patterns in the data online.
