Keep a diary of your days of pain. Write down the weather for that day, what you ate, what activities did you do, your mood, stressers for that day, and if you had a good day document that to. After a month you will see what sets off the pain the most. I know my pain is set off with the weather pressures. The storm can be a 100 miles away and yet I feel it like its on top of me. Food wise I saw that dairy products, caffeine and some dyes in my food caused me more pain. It we will give you an idea of what to avoid. Air conditioning is hard on my pain so I have it set at 75 and I use fans to help with cooling down. Let me know how it goes.
