Oh yes! I am our family's official weather-body...my body can tell you when the weather is about to change. I think it's one of our "perks"! Cuddle up with something warm - this too shall pass.

Jamie, I think most of us are indeed more accurate then the local weather people. Some of us do better in the heat while others do better in the cold. I need something in the middle but if I had to chose, I would stay with cold because I suffer so much in heat and ecspecially humidity. Hot tub is a great idea, hope it helps Smile

Oh yes, my body reacts to weather. Winters are worse, but I dont feel too good on rainy days in the summer either.

Hi, I am FibroSista and I am new to the group. I too am a great weather predictor. I find I am worse in the winter, especially with snow falling, but the rain and humidity cause my Fibro to worsen too. We have a hot tub at home, but it is a great deal of maintenance and I seem to be the only one who understands the chemicals. I also find I am too much of a weenie to walk out on the cold deck to get to it in the dead of winter. I have put some serious thought into moving south.

Good (Tues.) Morning, Jamie,

Sorry to hear that you are suffering pain with the severe weather change. That is very normal for someone with Fibro. Sad

Severe cold and damp in the winter as well as some humidity in the summer really bothers me .

I hope you feel better very soon ~~~

Hi Jamie, it looks like it's unanimous so far. My body also should've been a meterological tool. (Joking) We were also in the middle of an ice storm/snowstorm/windstorm and my pain was just awful. It nearly seems like wind bothers me more then the cold does.

Going to the Y and sitting in the hot tub, going to a tanning bed, or a lot of exercise seems to help me. I also go for massages or just use a vibrator on my back or most painful areas. Icy hot or something like that helps, too. But unfortunately, I'm nowhere near pain free no matter what I do to ease the pain. I don't do meds well and that's another problem. I can't use them to help control the pain I feel.
