Yes. I live in South Africa, and moved here from Tasmania (Australia). We have wet summers and dry winters. My pain is usually bearable, and flare-ups are minor. Cold damp was always the worst.

I have found that taking a hot bath, using a heating pad or an electric blanket on low works good.

@TO ALL FIBRO SUFFERERS:

i HAVE TRIED ON TWO OCCASIONS TO PRINT THE EXTENSIVE BLOOD WORK DONE:

ANA Titre, Vitamin B-12, CRP, Sm.Antibodies, Magnesium,

All but the ANA Titre were normal. The ANA Titre showed positive for Lupus.

Sure hope this will help others in the future.

I live in sunny California and my flares are worse due to the extreme heat we have here. The weather affects us wherever we live. I do think having winters is not good for our pain level.
