location (before, during, current) = Nashville Tennessee
I started experiencing issues 15 years ago when I moved to college in Cookeville TN. Actually symptoms appeared upon coming back to Nashville when I was on summer and winter breaks.
I recently took a vacation to Destin FL and had fantastic health while I was there but when I came back to Nashville I started having issues again.
Like many of you I was also wondering if the sun or salt water played a positive role but it might have been diet changes or lack of stress too. I've thought about
going back to see if I get similar results. I'm starting to try salt water baths and Vitamin D to see if I can recreate Destin at home. ;-)
Similar to what a few of you have mentioned, I tend to flair at the end of seasons - primarily Feburary and August. I've been off of meds completely for about
8 years and have been managing my health through diet. I can't seem to find the root cause but I keep trying. I can normally make adjustments to my diet before things get bad enough to require anything invasive.
I find similarities in people's stories very fascinating - if enough people share their stories then hopefully we can find correlation (ideally causation) to the root causes.
Good luck all.
