I am having to re-locate all the articles and studies I had found before, so again, bear with me.. I am working off of a phone now so its a slow process and I'm a mom so I can't spend alot of time on here at one time. Will post more as I can. There are better articles and papers online, I just have to find them all again.

anoth er article on flares and decay rate change

Here is a link to a list of some of the natural radioactive elements we all have..

radioactive isotopes naturally found in humans

The list is important because it shows how much, and how little of each radioactive isotope, we have in our bodies. And if the theory of radioactive decay rate change is correct, in my opinion, and the particles emitted by the sun during solar flares DO speed up or slow down the rate at which these isotopes decay within us, I believe this could be causing changes to our potassium levels, leading to related symptoms.

Wow~ I came back from lunch with some great responses to read! Thank you everyone! Constant thank you for those links! There very valuable for myelf

Not sure if there was a solar flare hitting earth yesterday or not, but I had such a bad headache the last couple of days, and I never get head aches.

I'm writing off as allergies though!

I'm going to be keeping a close eye on this thread, been feeling absolutely rubbish since Monday...

Nausea, lethargy, irritable.... Not like me at all. I was putting it down to starting taking the contraceptive pill again last week after a few months break. Also my diet's been quite crap lately. But reading this thread I have to wonder...

I wanted to write if off as Allergies, not going to the gym as I usually do, maybe even dehydrated.... But it was worth the look and I'm getting some ironic coincidences... Though the logical side of me is wanting to write it off.... I can't help but wonder~ Thanks for taking the time Darkblade and responding...

Additionally I dig the new pic
I SnF you earlier for the thread you created in regards to it!

Yes to all of this and more...I've been posting in the Alternative Earthquake prediction thread for a while, with no real correlation popping up, but some very strange stuff going on, and many of us having matching symptoms at the same time. Someone did mention solar flares there a while back and I've kinda been keeping an eye on that too to see if it might be related to how I'm feeling. Part of me is very glad it's not just me, but the symptoms can still be hell. If we are sensitive to this stuff, whatever the origin, I think the solution is to take some time out and rest properly, which is what I'm going to do tonight and tomorrow.

I found this part of your link most interesting Constant~

Stran ge, Unexplained Solar Influence

The bad news is that still, no one knows why this happens. It may be an interaction among ionizing particles and neutrinos, but those things are puny, chargeless and mostly unwilling to interact with any normal matter. It's still a mystery, said Fischbach's colleague at Purdue, nuclear engineer Jere Jenkins. "We are saying something that doesn’t interact with anything is changing something that can’t be changed. Either neutrinos are affecting decay rate or perhaps an unknown particle is," Jenkins says.

Do we have any Physicists looking at this thread? That which I just quoted is odd to me. How does something that doesn't react to anything change to something that can't be changed or affected?

Wouldn't this be the equivelant of changing a lizard embryo to a chicken? I know it's a layman reference but I have to ask~

This all goes back to 2006, when physicists at Purdue, Stanford and other places noticed something that at first defied physical explanation: Radioactive elements were changing their decay rates. This flew in the face of long-accepted physics theory, which held that these rates are constant. Radioactive decay apparently grew more pronounced in winter than in summer, and when scientists went looking for an explanation, they noticed this appeared to correlate with solar flares.

From the above quoted. Can Solar Flares be reacting to Human's on a sub atomic particle level? Is that even possible?

Awesome, the more I'm researching the more questions are arising....

By the way, none of the recent flares were earth directed, and even if they were I doubt there would've been any significant effects felt, low X-class flares aren't that big.
A direct hit from a X15+ class flare though and we'll start talking business.

Wow so sorry to hear how everyone is feeling crappy, but since the solar flares started and yes I have heard years ago that there is a physical influence from this even if it is NOT directed to Earth, but I have been particularly nice to my ex who agitates me beyond belief.

If he thinks that this is solar flare related he may begin wishing for them, and I fear that I cannot be held responsible for anything that he wishes hard enough for, so I will write this and hope he doesnt read it.

Peace, NRE.

A different take...

I've had the anxiety and nervousness, but that's my SOP so hard to say if it's from the flares. However, my students are going positively nuts right now. In fact, the faculty was talking about it today....discipline referrals are up, kids are out sick, the whole shebang.

We notice an increase in these behaviors during the full moon and before snowstorms (I've actually charted it and yes, the pattern is clear). So maybe this is more than just spring fever?

Very interesting, OP! S&F

Perhaps some of you should see a doctor...

I feel fine.

Indeed I have been having headaches for a few days, but unfortunately they have little to do with solar flares and are accompanied by itchy and burning eyes, sneezing and a runny nose. Damn you, seasonal allergies!!! (Shakes fist at anything pollen related!)

12th I woke up feeling really hot, not a fever but my body was really hot. Sweating a lot more too, and felt so tired and avoiding I ended up skipping class for the day. Could be this...or it could be the expired hash browns I ate.

Haha it wasnt the Monday blues, I actually like Mondays lol because its quieter at work so its an easier day. Plus I work on evenings so I dont do the early morning bad moods either

What I think it could be was on the Sunday I binged a bit on chocolate, so it might have been some come down from a sugar rush or something.

I gave you a flag because your post made me feel less guilty about being absolutely no fun at all for my kid the past couple of days. I am irritated beyond anything I can really comprehend. Felt really badly about that and have been looking at all sorts of "how to be more patient" (which I usually really, really am) type parenting stuff because I hate being short with the kid and I can't seem to help it the past couple of days. Oh yeah and dull background headache that will not quite go away -- check.

Thanks for the info.

I commented on a thread yesterday stating that I seem to get head aches during strong solar flares and the response I got was pretty typical, that i'm crazy.

Nah. I do believe some people are more sensitive to changes in their bodies/environment. We after all are affected by the moon and seasonal changes among others, so why would it be so hard to believe we could be affected by something that is happening to our Sun and directing an energy towards our planet?

I am a pretty health oriented person. I almost never get sick but around mothers day I had the worst headache of my life, actually it was more of a "jam a fork into my skull" migraine that lasted 2 days. My mood was also rather lower than usual, but since I'm a female the first culprit I point the finger at is hormones
It's really interesting to see that people are connecting the effects of solar flares with the human psyche as there is much about ourselves, the earth and definitely space in which science is yet to understand.

Good thread OP. S&F. I have read quite a bit about this but not the article you posted here. I can't really notice if it effects me. I watch Spaceweather almost every day and try to figure if I notice anything effecting me or others I know. I can't tie anything in for sure, it's like there may be something there but it is so sporadic that I can't make a definite connection.

Maybe if I took off my tinfoil cap I might notice something.

Total lack of energy/interest Sunday. I made a 5 hour drive Sunday afternoon till eve. I felt mind boggled... A lot like waking up from a hangover and going through the day with a confused brain and a mild headache.

Monday on, even until now, I've had a mild headache and constant tiredness going on. I think I slept more in the last few days than I have in a full normal week. I would sleep for 6 hours, wake up, eat, fall back asleep for 4 more hours.. wake up and try to watch a show, then fight to stay awake for the rest of the night. Good thing i've been off work!

Yesterday, multiple palpitations with tiredness. Today I feel more towards normal.

I dont think I have any heart issues. I have been getting checked regularly and often since August of last year. (Quit smoking and thought I was having heart problems but it was heartburn and ulcers... gee.. quitting smoking has more harmful effects than smoking... Really???)

might be something to that. thanks for bringing it up!

Wow dude! Exact same here on all accounts!
My headache was brief, only a minute or so but one of the worst pains ever & on the right side above my ear. I NEVER get headaches besides, coincidence or not I really don't know, CME time!

What was unusual was the Achilles! First time I ever had a pain so bad in that area. For real!
You have successfully freaked me out!
