Have You Moved To Somewhere That Helped Your Fibromyalgia Symptoms? Florida? Carolina? Anywhere?

Multiple doctors over the years have recommend that I move out of OHIO to a warmer climate to ease my Fibromyalgia symptoms. Florida is typically the state they recommend.

Hi in regards to your question about where to live I have been told we need to live in a meditteranium climate ex...Hawaii, central California. Also dry climates Arizona., New Mexico.They say Florida has too much humidity and storm s coming through. The barometric pressure there is crazy.

Fl is nuts! It is very humid most of the year which causes pain. When prepping for an incoming storm, you need to muster all you got to prepare. It's hard work. I also find the constant sun doesn't help either.

I do find that the more unstable the barometer, the more pain. My daughter bought me a storm glass that overflows when the changes in barometric pressure is dramatic.

It's been a great visual aid for myself and especially for my husband as he can SEE the change and can understand that I'm having increased pain. I didn't realize that the pressure changes the most as the storms come in. When the storm gets here, I do have some relief.

The heat doesn't seem to both me, but the severe cold gets me pretty badly. We were below zero for several weeks this Jan/Feb. Going out into it to work caused extreme pain.

I couldn't get any accommodations from my employer to work from home because I was "too important to the company". So I was forced to go off work and filing for disability.

Barometric pressure affects my fibromyalgia, and Florida is one of the best places to live if you suffer from big spikes in pressure. My body LOVES humidity. Whenever I go anywhere that has humidity and has steadier barometric pressure, my body feels so much better. We're checking out Florida during hurricane season to see how I do. I'd say it's probably a fluke. You might have more problems during hurricane season, but most of the year, you'd probably feel better than Ohio. It also depends on where you were in Florida. You can't go just anywhere. Most of the coastal cities are good. Orlando, too. Miami and the keys are the best, but the other coastal cities aren't far behind. There will be bad days, if going just off of barometric pressure, but they are a small percentage of the days. Most times, pressure spikes less than .20. I always feel better on warm days that spike .20 or less.
