The arthritic pain in my left hip varies considerably depending upon humidity....nothing to do with heat and cold, as bitterly cold clear winter days are often pain free. I’m deferring a hip replacement as on a good day I can stick crack on and walk 15/18 miles without much pain. On a bad day it’s painful limping less than a mile into town.
I thought I’d monitor daily humidity levels where I live, and make side notes referring to the pain that was, or was not, present in varying degrees. Presumably its best to site the hygrometer outside where I have no control over the humidity ?

Incidentally it’s only the hip where I had invasive surgery many years ago that causes me pain. The other hip and both knees are still pretty good, despite a lifetime of sports and long distance walking....after breaking my right wrist a few times in climbing accidents, bone was scraped off my left hip and inserted ( unsuccessfully) as a repair job.

Got an Alexa? Just say "Alexa, what's the humidity?"

Ok, it will be the humidity at some nearby point I suppose, but pretty cheap and easy, plus whatever other benefits Alexa gives you.

You could then add in a dehumidifier and a smart plug for a tenner, use the very easy to use IFTT service on the web to get it all to dry your living room out whenever it hits a certain number or something equally bonkers.

All good fun.
