It seems you can't blame the weather for your aches and pains.

Many people insist their back pain or arthritis is triggered by changes in temperature, humidity or even rain, but when scientists in Australia tracked pain symptoms in over 1,300 adults, they found weather conditions played no role.

Experts suggest people tend to take note of pain on bad weather days and overlook their symptoms when it's sunny and warm.
