    I saw your post under floridians....I live north of P'Cola, in Byrneville!! We go thru Milton about once a week when hubby and I head to the bay to catch mullet.

    I can't explain to ya HOW the weather effects us, but I can tell ya it certainly effects me. The past couple of days wiht the front coming down from the west and the storm to the east I'm being squished. I seem to get really tired and just throbbing from head to toe. Even the asthma acts up.
    I actually do better in the winter as long as I stay warm and it isn't damp. The heat really gets me and I've lived in Fla all my life. Hopefully somebody will come wiht an explanation for ya...or just do a search for "how weather effects fibromyalgia"...

    Also, since your in the area, Do you know there is a fibro support group in Pensacola? We meet the 4th Tuesday of every month @ the Medical Center Clinic on Davis Hwy. at 6:00pm. I've met some good ppl there and lots info too.

    Take care,
    Warm fuzzies

    The cold plays havic on my body. I live in Eastern Oregon and we have all four seasons. But sometimes the weather changes dramatically. I ache all over. My hands and feet and butt go cold in the winter. It is already chilling down here quite a bit. It will be 50 degrees in the am and up to 80 in the afternoon. Talk about crazy. I end up changing clothes 3 times a day just to keep comfortable.
    Buy lots of warm socks and mittens for the colder days and try to keep yourself comfortable. Hope this helps

    You have a double whammy with the Lupus too. I imagine that is a contributing factor. I think the changes in pressure have a big effect on us.

    I live so far south in Florida that we seldom have weather fronts like the rest of the country. Tropical storms are about the only thing which affect us. I love the heat and humidity, but it's not for everyone.

    Love, Mikie
