I live at a high altitude and every time I travel to the city I have to go up and down 7,000 ft of altitude. I am noticing when I do have to do this drive as the driver and then do all my shopping or doctor appointments the flareups of pain increase and hit me hard. I can not avoid the having to get to down at least 2 x a month. I wonder do others suffer from this change in pressure.
Also as a storm approaches and the pressure in the air drops I am hit hard. This week I am near bed ridden as we have been hit with huge feets of snow and more storms coming all week long.
I wondered if a low level or warm area to live in with dry heat would be better for less Fibro attacks.
Or If you live in those dry condtions and low levels, do you still get flares up just as randomly and intense?
My husband wanted me to find out if it is just a high altitude thing or not. We are new to this diagnoses but have lived with it for over a year now and wishing we knew more answers.
I get a new symptom each month and I try not to wear myself out but my stress levels must be shot.
thanks for listening,
