I developed a problem with heat in my 40's that would naturally be associated with menopause. I had some sweating and such. However, I never experienced the usual menopausal symptoms. Just one day in my 50's I had my last period. But since then, the sweating got worse and this feeling that I was "baking" when I was in the heat outside or indoors was just more than I could deal with. I would take cold showers and stand in front of the air conditioner, lay in bed under the fan and have ice packs on me. The bad part is that the more I felt like I was baking from the inside out, the worse my pain became and I also felt nauseous. My blood pressure also went up. I had lived in Florida all my life. I was born in central Florida, moved to the panhandle as a teenager, met my husband there, married and had our first child there. We eventually moved back to my hometown in central Florida where we remained and raised our family. We just moved to New England this last fall and I can't tell you the relief I am feeling. I literally thought I was going to die in the heat of Florida. Everyone is different with Fibro. Most people are affected by the cold weather, and that would make sense if it affects your joints. For some reason, my muscles are more affected. In fact, my Rheumatologist treated me for MS for awhile because I had the symptoms and my B12 was in the basement. The medication she gave me, Baclofen, gave me hallucinations, so I asked to be taken off. I have dizzy spells, I have headaches, I definitely have what is known as Fibro fog, I am not able to walk as steady as I used to and have to take stairs slowly going up and one at a time going down, side ways. I have random leg pains, ankle pains and burning for no reasons. Very painful. Facet pain the Rheumatologist calls it. I no longer work after 41 years. So, the short answer is that I am a strange case in the fact that heat is my enemy, cold is my friend. And, I love New England. Just beautiful.
