I was just curious to know if anyone thinks using a tanning bed would help with the aching associated with FM...I live in the Midwest and had a GREAT summer as far as minimal aching from my FM symptoms. I think the heat played a great role in my feeling better. Now the weather is cooling off and it's starting to get rainy and wet, I'm getting that God-awful aching back that I so much have been dreading. I can't say it was 100% gone over the summer, but it was SO much better than in the Fall and Winter. I absolutely HATE to see summer end if this is what I'm in for again. Someone mentioned to me that maybe a tanning bed would help with the aching in the winter. They suggested going twice a week to alleviate some of the pain. I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with this. Would it help or would I just be opening up another can of worms with the harmful tanning rays? Any suggestions would help.. Thanks.
