storm, cold, thunder and/or electrical disturbances. The person is worse during
seasonal changes from summer to winter. Symptoms often come for indefinite
periods of time, sometimes longer sometimes shorter (2 - 12 days). Symptoms will
be absent then come again and be felt for several days. Symptoms are most likely
to return back when the weather becomes cold and when a storm is threatening.
