I'm a big believer in the weathers affects on people with FM.I'm always being asked what the weathers going to do because the pressure changes have such an effect on me I know when a low front is going to move in or out :lol:

I read an article a while ago that was written in the late 1800's, the Dr who wrote it said that he believed "myalgia" to be governed by the weather and the moon phases and after speaking to quiet a few sufferers I also believe it has some influence on us.

I know it probably sounds far fetched to some people I'll carry on believing until I'm proved wrong. :D

Yep, I get this. This weather is torture! I've found that staying warm and dry helps - sounds obvious but sticking indoors with central heating is good, but if I go out in this weather, even if I wrap up well and go to the car, I'll hurt.

Interesting...

it is a well known and accepted fact on 'the continent' that the weather affects one's health, particularly headaches, muscles and joints. Where my parents live, they have daily weather 'bio' forecast with their pollen and UV index forecast to warn and advice people if their joints/muscles/headache are going to be affected.
It is also known that people having arthritis can 'forecast' weather change.

People laugh because I can always tell when its going to rain and tell how far off the rain is depending on how sore my left leg is!!!! Sounds mad I know, but its been like this since I was tiny and has been a bit of a standing joke in my family, and you know -I'm never wrong.

I woke up in so much pain last night because my leg was so bad and without even looking I knew it must have been pouring with rain. Bizarre!

I sometimes think I only get invited to BBQ's so they can ask me what the weathers going to do :roll:

It's not a nice thing to be affected with, especially at this time of year.

This place is great - I'm picking up so many tips! I never thought my flare-ups could be to do with the weather but now I think about it....hmmm.

Just a thought - does anyone here suffer from SAD too? I wonder if I psychologically feel so bad in winter because I know that physically I'm going to suffer or vice-versa. :crazy:

Affected by changes in the weather here as well :( Have been feeling as lousy as the weather has been, just either want to curl up and hibernate or be on a paradise island with a bronzed Adonis pandering to my every whim and fancy :D No chance of either happening tho, so will just have to soldier on as usual as the world will stop if I do, well according to OH and offspring anyway :roll:
