Weather does seem to affect the pain alot... I live in Florida on the Gulf Coast. It's most hot. We get a little cold. I'm from Wisconsin though and I know the really cold too... but living in Florida its year round constant heat/humidity/atmospheric changes and I've discovered I seem to be weather affective.
Yes, I ache alot. The pain varies in lots of different way depending on what... it can be anything from stabbling knife like pains randomly thru my right eye, or up the back of my head to leg spasms that feel like massive charlie horses. My feet often hurt unmercifully but that is also a combination of Osteoarthritis particularly in the feet and knees... I've managed to alleviate a lot of the knee pain with Glucasomine Chonrdroitin w/MSM daily supps. Pain can also be a sense of all over malaise, swelling, or extreme weightiness making me feel like I can't lift my arms or move another step. For so long it's been called Fibromyalgia by the drs so I just nursed it with daily Advil and nightly Flexeril + Tylenol 3 when it was too much to deal with.
But the worst part is trying to explain it to anyone else, friends and family and they'll immediately say, "Oh I get that too, it's just getting older, ya know?!" I just smile and think, how I wish I could blame just that.
I'm active person, only about 30lbs overweight but I carry it well. I'm very limber so it makes me look "not ill"... I am stronger than most from a history of work as an Auto Parts Mgr (you build a lot of arm strength over the years picking up parts that weigh 10-25# averages) and a former Boy Scout Scoutmaster (15 yrs). I used to hike, camp, backpack, canoe, horsebackriding etc... without weakness and debilitating wear me out fatigue. Then I had a car accident in '92 that left me with minor nerve damage and it's been a downward spiral ever since. Now I frustrate myself as much as my husband in my "weaknesses", my stumbling, staggering, misjudgments, painfulness, and numb achy feeling all the time. Not to mention alot of other areas of my life and body that have faied me miserably.
So I'm here learning and lapping up everything I can to adjust... and reading books like crazy to figure out the best gameplan.
