I wish fibro had at least one symptom that was for fibro and fibro alone. I have not been feeling well the past few days and I'm still trying to decide if it is fibro or if I have a bug of some kind confused  At first thought I was coming down with the cold DH has had, can't believe I haven't, I know there is a stomach bug going around and I feel nausous today and like things aren't moving out of my stomach (gastroparesis), as far as I know it has nothing to do with fibro or am I in a flare??? It would be nice to know. If I come down with a stomach bug it is bad for me since I can't vomit and usually means a trip to the hos for a gastric tube.
 
DH needs to leave town for a couple of hours but knows if I start trying to vomit he has to be here so it's not only my day that is being affected by this.
 
Has anyone else noticed they feel better in the winter than spring and summer??? The past few years spring and summer has been really bad for me, just not fair since I love nice weather so much.
 
Thanks, I'm done complaining now even if it is a nice sunny day and I don't feel up to taking the girls for a walk, oh well 51 isn't that warm.
 
luv and hugs

It is almost 70 here Marlee,
But we have colder weather moving in. Maybe what you have now, there is going to be a chance of snow, but I don't think it is going to stay. I hope not anyway. This has been a really mild March.

I hope that you feel better. And I hope that it isn't a bug and just goes away.

Have a great day.

Hugs, karen

I always have trouble in spring, feeling worse. I like summer, but the weather changes too much all year around. Diane

Marlee, hope you are feeling better soon. I can't imagine not being able to vomit when
you feel the need. Fibro has so many symptoms so it's easy to wonder if anything else
is going on when you don't feel well. Sometimes I'll blame everything on fibro or mctd.

The warmer weather suits me better. I love Springtime but do not enjoy my allergies
to all the pollen. Cold and damp weather is the worst for me.

Take Care, Hugs,

Apparently it's just fibro showing it's ugly head. After I took meds for tummy and rested I felt better. I feel fine this morning so shall see what happens after I have worked in the house for awhile.
 
I have allergies too Robin, to everything green, so why aren't I living in the desert??? smilewinkgrin
 
I still enjoy the warmer weather and going out without bundling up like I'm in the artic, clothes can feel so heavy somedays. But spring and summer has changed a lot in how I feel physically. Guess I can't have it all.

Marlee, summer is my worst time of the year but I still look so forward to it.  I love the warmth of the sun and being able to get in the pool.  But the humidity and afternoon storms here can be killers.
 
I used to try to guess what was going on with me but I've given up on that.  I never came to any conclusions!  So, I just know that if I wait long enough, the stuff goes away and something else will crop up.  Also, you would know for sure if you needed to see a doctor.

Hi there! I'm glad you are feeling better and it wasn't a bug. I dislike summers so much, growing up in the south it felt overwhelming and incredibly frustrating. I am so thankful to be in MN now where its cooler in every way smilewinkgrin I feel so much better in the cold here than I did in the south. When I know summer is close I get alll weird.  Autumn is my time of year.
