Air conditioning affecting fibro

Good Morning Everyone
Hope you are having a painfree summer.The heat and humidity do not seem to help. I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing stiffness and aches and pains from being in air conditioning too long.It is so humid here in the Boston area we have it going non stop.And I wake up stiff and in pain.What is the alternative. Hugs Fran

You bring up an interesting point for me today.

This morning I woke with some of the worst hip and knee pain that I've had in a while.

We had some pleasant weather last week with warm days and cool nights and I had the house open. Yesterday the weather started to heat up and I turned the AC on. It's going to be hot and humid for a good apart of this coming week.

I wonder now if the pain today is from the changing conditions outside or inside my house.

Not sure there is an alternative to having the AC on. I turned it on because I have even more sleep problems than I normally do when it's too hot and humid.

Hoping your aches and pain go away!
