    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    I have fibro and myofascial syndrome, the bottom of my feel and the outside of my nose at times is extremely cold. Does anyone know is this has anything to do with either of these illnesses and also November is the worst month for my pain anyone else?
    fibroKimber responded:
    do you take any meds?? i had that side effect when I would take tramadol (ultram)... first time my nose and face were ICY cold and painful, the next time i took it it was my hands/arms.

    winter generally seems to worsen pain for most people with FM... it does for me. either extreme in the weather does. hope you feel better!!

    susanstop56 replied to fibroKimber's response:
    I take lots of meds but not tramadol. yes since I have been diagnosed over the yrs I've noticed winter does make my pain worse as does changes in weather. I also don't handle cold weather as well as I used to.
