Avoid Going Out During the Peak Heat

Avoid moving out during the peak of the heat which usually happens during mid-day between 1100-1500 hours. The day’s heat is often at its worse during noon so you may want to avoid heading out or running your errands at this time, instead do it in the early morning or late evening. In any worst case scenario where you have to go out during the hottest time of the day, put on a full summer gear which should include a wide brim hat, a pair of sunglasses and an umbrella.


Wear Loose and Comfortable Clothing

A lot of those who are suffering from fibromyalgia are sensitive to constricting fabrics and tight clothing. Always avoid wearing these clothing during summer. Instead, wear loose fitting clothes that are made of cotton and will wick sweat far from your body to help you to stay cool.
