    I live in Toledo and oh yes the weather is coool and it sure does affect the body and is horrible. Its the up and down temps that make me hurt. Lately it warms up , then gets cooler and ugh! Somedays its all I can do to get my hips and legs and feet going! Where do you live? I am on the Ohio/Michigan border. I actually live NW Ohio.

    I am from Youngstown, Ohio, the sinus capital of the world! My problem too is the change of weather although I cannot stand the heat and humidity. I get cabin fever in the SUMMER--in the house with the air on all day. Then in the fall, it is the allergies, along with all the pain and aching. in the winter--you name it! Is there any place you can live with this dd?

    Where in northeast Ohio are you from Barb?

    Hi Barb--

    I've lived in Cleveland all of my life until this past summer. I've only had FM for a little bit over a year now, but I can remember last year at this time how the Cleveland weather affected me. Brutal!! However, once the weather turns cold and stays cold, I felt a little better. I think its the temperature change that does it for us. The same thing happened in the spring when the temperature went up.

    Where in NE Ohio are you from?

    Good luck!

    Shelly :)

    Im near Portsmouth, Ohio.. Down South (central) of Ohio. I used to live in texas (alot better place to be then here!!) Ohio is good for humidy.. not only that but really bad rainy days. When we do get heat its not the type of dry heat we need, it really sucks! When I lived in Tx I never once had a cold, nor did I have the problems I have now. But, knowing my luck I could move and it would be worse. =)

    I hope you get to feeling better!!

    Huggies,

    Misty

    Good morning all.. I live outside of Cleveland, East about 30 minutes. I lived in W. Palm Beach Florida for nearly 11 years, and returned here due to personal issues in my family... Oh I could say I regret it, been struggling with so many illnesses since 1992, never was sick or tired or overweight etc in the beautiful state of Florida. I do notice now that the humidity is unbearable, so I guess even that doesn't look as inviting... I do not regret returning though, met a wonderful man who is a blessing to me and have a precious son... so ... even though today is one of my really bad days with the lack of sleep and achy.. I am thankful to have these guys in my life. Have a blessed day all...Barb

    I live in Mansfield. Half way between Cleveland and Columbus.
    I know what you all are saying about how the weather affects you1! This weekend was horrible for me!! Did you guys see the snow last night? So not looking forward to another winter. I think I feel worse in the winter then the summer. I can't seem to get warm no matter what!!

    Hi Scoobsmom,
    I live east of Cleveland too. I have CFS, FM and MCS. Although, with all the alternative treatment I've done over the past 2 years, my FM and MCS are much better. My biggest obstacle is the CFS.

    The summer's get to me the worst...heat and sunshine. But esp. heat.

    I do not suffer as badly with the heat and sun as I used too. I have been seeing a naturopathic doctor for a couple years who cleared me of various allergies including allergies/sensitivities to Ultraviolet A & C. Once she cleared those sensitivities, it was MIRACULOUS as I could finally go out in the sun without getting sick to my stomach and extremely fatigued and weak.

    The cooler weather doesn't bother me at all. The humidity doesn't seem to get to me too bad unless it gets REALLY humid when it's hot and then I got very fatigued from it.

    Anyway, it's nice to see who all lives near me:)

    Keeping hope alive, Monkeykat

    I live outside of Mt Vernon just about 30 min south of Mansfield. In fact I think we're going to go to the Outback there for dinner tonight because I feel pretty decent.

    I'm weird because the cold actually makes me better. But then I have CFS not FMS.

    Best wishes,
    Shar

    Hi all, I live an hour south of Toledo. Fall hasn't been very nice this year but this week sounds nice. Have you all been battling with FM/CFIDS for a long time? What do you take or do that has helped you the most?
