When its like that, I take those miserable legs to bed and turn on my elec blanket, the heat feels wonderful.

Absolutely!! I lived in Puerto Rico for 15 years and then Florida but I recently moved to Chicago over a year ago and all my symptoms just sky rocketed since moving to Chicago. Still when I lived in the warmer climates my body changed with the months and it is always more painful in fall winter and spring no matter where I lived. Changing had a lot to do with it. Maybe air pressure or something influences the bones and muscles. You would think that they would figure out what it is so they can turn it OFF!!!

Yes, it's the barometric pressure! If it is anywhere near 29:50 and 30:50. It is awful for me and the closer to 29:95, the worst, for me!

Yes the barometric pressure has a Big effect. Also the changes of the seasons makes your pain worse.

Fibromyalgia makes simple things cause HUGE pain flare ups. It definitely is a battle constantly. Hang in there. Kathy

I totally agree with the others responses. I have felt like a meterologist for years. I can usualy predict the weather two days ahead of time if it's going to rain or snow. My husband is the same as he has fibro too, & we just huddle up with our heating pads on these miserable days. It does help if you can keep moving, but I totally undestand what you are saying. You are definately not alone...

I like what Kaismama said so I will be investing in a heating blanket soon!!! That sounds fabulous. Up until this last week, no one could get me to turn the AC off!! Lol.

I notice the rain and cold effect me and makes pain worse. I can tell anyone two days before rain is coming. I'm still trying to find relief from the effects the weather plays on me also.

The weather ABSOLUTELY makes the fibro worse. I have Fibro, RA, and OA and I always know when there will be rain. Humidity also bothers my conditions as well as extemes in weather which is really fun since I live in New England. Good luck

YES, I'm having one of those days today. My doctor gave me extra Effexor for days like this. Try heat & ice, hot baths and keeping warm. I find the cold makes me worse too.
