Some people mentioned the cold as being a trigger for FM, but for me its the heat and the humidity. I live in Florida, so we get a lot. I feel better when its in the seventies and the humidity is low. My energy rebounds, especially if drops to the lower forties at night. If I wake up in relatively low pain, then I know it will be a good day, but lately here its been a very rare treat.
Hi there! I too live in Florida and feel terrible when it's hot and humid outside!!! The summers are the worst time for me, right now is when I have an awful flare-up, go running to my doctor and I have to take extra meds to barely function. The winters are the best, like you said when the humidity is low and I LOVE the cold. It just doesn't happen enough here. Where in Florida are you? I'm in Southwestern on the coast. Thanks and hope you are having a good day!
read, somewhere on the net of course, that if you have fibro flares because of the cold weather it is common to have flares beause of the humidity -i've always loved the warmth/heat of the summer until the last two (climate seems to have changed alot the last two yrs) so did some investigating on why i've been so miserable when i should of been more comfortable
It could be the change in Barometric Pressure not just the Relative Humidity that can cause a flare. I know changes in the pressure are my problem with not having much in the way of humidity where I live.
I live in the panhandle, I also wish it could be in the 70's and 40's at night all the time, but I don't know of any such place. I've lived in the south most of my life. I wish I could change up and move to say Montana.
I live in north Florida not to far from Panama City. We have wonderful winters, but very hot summers with high humidity. I have a hard time when it is so hot too. I find breathing is harder too. Luckily the place I work keeps the air conditioning running all the time. It gets so cold I have to wear a thick sweater all summer long! I freeze my DH at night because I love it so cold. He sleeps under two blankets and I sleep with a thin one! Good luck with the summer, I have a felling it is going to be a hot one.
Your not over the hill until you are under the hill.
