I've found that two or three days before it rains I have a flare up in the amount of pain I have. I'm like a living barometer. When it's cold and wet such as in early spring or winter the pain in my body is intensified. Does anyone else find themselves reacting to the weather conditions?View Thread
I'm so glad to learn I'm not alone in so many pet peeves I've developed since being diagnosed with fibromyalgia. My biggest one is my friends and family think it's all in my head. To some extent it is as far as how my brain is reacting to this illness. Even doctors for years didn't figure out what the problem was and wrote me off as phychological case..frustrating. Finally my present Dr. helped me by giving a name for what I've been going through for years. Praise God! Now I'm finally getting proper treatment.View Thread
