that Humans can sense Thunderstorms almost like animals do??

I ask this because ever since I was a kid I would get a really bad stomach ache before a storm. but only a thunderstorm/rain.

and as I have grown the stomach aches have change to more of a gut feeling, and my skin feels like it's static-y like, and I can feel/smell the difference in the air..

Like today I woke up and I started to get that gut feeling, but decided blah I'm going to mow the lawn, all of a sudden the air felt different and I could smell the change in the air. so I checked the weather channel and we're to expect a storm in about half an hour.

I've researched this with no conclusion, So I just want to know if anyone has this or what they think?

Well, many people can detect increasing and decreasing air pressure by fluid buildup in their joints.

And that's a big part of any weather.

Maybe it's just because you ARE an animal.

I suppose it's a possibility for people to subconsciously detect an incoming thunderstorm, but I doubt anyone can do it at will. Besides, it's probably more coincidence than anything.

idk about coincidence, it happens almost every-time before it storms. I'm sure I can't do it on demand yet... but who knows...*rubs nipple* "There's a 50% chance that it's already raining"

You could just be subconsciously noticing signs of a thunderstorm, which makes you think there's one coming.

Although personally, I think it's just coincidence. You couldn't have possibly tested this that much, as you probably don't get that many thunderstorms in any given week.

this has been going on for years, but a coincidence sounds like a good possibility.
