Does anyone feel like they get "weak" when a weather front comes in?  It's been really hot and humid here(Tennessee) (which is bad enough) but today it was overcast and cooler and for some reason I have been so weak in the legs and I think it is this front coming through.

Hi Libby,

I always feel worse when a front is coming through. I am thinking that it might be the barometric pressure. We just went through a bunch of humid weather and I wasn't feeling well. Now it is breezy and cooler and I feel better.

I hope that you feel better soon. Sometimes we have to ride these things out.

Hugs, Karen

Barometric pressure is definitely a cause for a fibro flare, maybe not for everyone...definitely for me. I think I can predict the weather better than most weather people :)
take care

MT Lady, I think the same thing about myself. I was in the store the other night with my husband and all of the sudden, I had to sit on the floor to keep from kissing it. It was out of no where. I had been feeling fine before that. We went straight home and about 30 min later, we had a huge thunderstorm come on quickly.

We have had thunderstorm almost everyday since then. We live in central Alabama and the humidity is so thick some days, you can cut it with a knife. I have been having to stay in bed or if I get to feeling better, I have to quickly go lay down just before the storm hits. (It is so strange.) Extended family swear it is a 'sick house' but I am fine when we do not have storms. Unless of course I have pushed myself too much.

I know that I definitely feel worse immediately before a storm hits.  I notice the aches and pains much more.   If we have dreary, rainy weather for a few days, I begin to feel fatigued and weak.  All I can do is sleep.  I live in the midwest, and we have had one storm after another this year.  The past week has been nice.  The humidity has been lower and the temperature has been warm.  I have been feeling much better!
