What Is the Best Climate for Fibromyalgia?

How Climate Affects Fibromyalgia

Sometimes, it is not the actual climate that makes a difference in fibromyalgia patients. It is the patient’s ability to adjust to the climate that affects how the patient feels. Changes in the barometer that is brought on by precipitation can also trigger fibro symptoms. The combination of humidity as well as the barometric pressure can make a fibromyalgia sufferer feel worse than when it is about to snow or rain before the actual precipitation will occur.

Certain places, such as the state of Florida, which tend to rain almost everyday, can increase the feeling of pain and discomfort among those with fibromyalgia.

Best Climate for Fibromyalgia

A consistent dry and warm climate is perhaps, the best climate for fibromyalgia. The southwestern part of the United States, such as New Mexico and Arizona, would fit in the ideal weather pattern for fibromyalgia. The weather in these places have less fluctuations and is less likely to turn cold.

    You need to question people before assuming. Give me cold weather anyday! The warm or high temps drive me crazy and then I’m chronically fatigued! I sleep with a window open in the winter, and I am post-menopausal.

    The heat kills me the cold temps cause flares to I have to stay within 75 to 78 if hotter I’m in extreme pain. I know when storms are coming I feel it in my bones I’m like a volcano ready to erupt but then after the storm has started my body calmed but the pain doesn’t leave.

    I’m better in heat, any cold or damp hits me bad, unfortunately I live in Scotland and hot weather usually in short supply, but we’ve had a hot spell for about 7 weeks and I am loving it.

    The heat flares up my fibromyalgia, extreme fatigue, slight depression. I prefer winter. If the temperature gets above 78 I’m done.

    I had such a heat intolerance, I never left the house. I couldn’t handle getting into a hot car would have to be started first. Im 52 and had a ovary removed due to cysts, so threw me right From perimenopause, to menopause. For me taking sage capsules was the answer. Now I only sweat over 85 degrees. Even humidity seems easier to take. I can get into the car without it being started and even can go camping as long as it’s not over 90.

    I have trouble with hot and cold weather. I feel like mine is triggered by the barometric system. Like today it is storming out and it affects my fibromyalgia something awful. It affects my mind putting me in a depression. I can’t get off the couch from hurting. I have just admitted to myself that I will have to live with it. Thank God I have a Dr. that understands and helps me as much as he can.
