You all please pray for me, the rest of this week is due to be highly humid and stormy. My legs are already in fits! I don't know if anyone else reacts to weather this way but it just sends my body into fibro-flare double time! I haven't been able to sleep right for two nights now already because of this. Ugh, stupid weather, why doesn't it just catch on to my preferences already.

On another note though, I was put on neurotin and it has been like a miracle! I was hesitant to use it at first because my Mom took it and it gave her seizures, but I finally relented. I was at the point where I would have taken straight Hemlock if prescribed lol. So, yay for that, and a big BOO for the weather.

Oh that humid weather! I have trouble with it too. It's been quite humid here in Michigan the past week. Makes my body ache. Hang in there - we will make it through!

So Sorry you are hurting Mrs. T

I certainly can relate about the humidity. I live in Arkansas and it has been in the 90's
along with high humidity. I am into week 2 of a crazy fibro flare. Turn up the air and
soak in a hot bath. Be extra good to yourself!!!! I am trying to spoil myself rotten :)
Just knowing these dang flares don't last forever gets me through the day.

Hoping you are pain free soon!!!!

Im just the opposite...I react very well to dreary weather. Might be because I grew up in Norther California but rain helps me and sunshine gives me stress which of course does not help lol.

As for the neurontin...I use it also and it is a wonder. One thing the rheumatologist did tell me though is that it doesnt last long since it is absorbed very fast and the dosage might have to be upped. I can sleep now! That is a blessing!

Keep smilin :)

Jhemi, I am the opposite too. I grew up in hot and humid which I love and feels great - I now live in dry and fluctutating barometric pressure, and am miserable except when it rains. Today it is windy and clammy, but sunny, and I'm having a terrible day. I hope everyone just hangs on tight and this flare too shall pass.

Hi there,
Yes...the weather is really bothering my legs, hips, knees, etc. :( It always seems to. We were planning an outdoor/swimming day much for that! The warm sun makes me feel so much better. I just love to sit and soak it up! Which was my plan for tomorrow while everyone else was in the water! :) Ohio isn't much for that though! We have had a very cool/unpredictable summer!

I live in Ohio too, no wonder we're feeling the same. This crazy weather! I am Not looking forward to the winter! Last winter almost killed me (or so I thought).
