We moved to Albuquerque New Mexico last year in hopes of finding some relief for my physical pain, and low and behold it REALLY helped! I loved it there! The bluest sunny skies ever, everyday for the 9 mths we were there!! We had to come back as my mother-in-law became very ill and then passed away suddenly, God bless her soul. However, we are most likely going to go back by the end of the year and I am so excited to say the least as I know that the weather has a huge impact on my pain level and I feel much relief there! So I am sending this tip to you all. Try New Mexico if you can. The closer to Albuquerque the better as it's not to cold in the winter and not to hot in the summer. I live in Ohio now and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone!! The humidity and the rain and snow are CrAzY bad!!!View Thread
Hello everyone. I am a newby and just wanted to stop by to say hello and to ask if anyone else dislikes the pain from the rain as much as I do?!? I have severe arthritis that continues to worsen throughout my entire body along with fibromyaligia from a very bad car accident I was in 17 yrs ago, and bad weather sucks! Most pain meds make me deathly ill other than Ibuprofen or naproxen that i have been eating for yrs now. My doc's have recommended Lyrica and I think I may finally give it a try. Just hope it works better than the newest anti depression meds I've tried in the past, that made me feel like I was in another world. I also may try prozac. I would appreciate any input from any one that has had experience with either of these drugs. Thanks and stay strong!View Thread
