Does Your Area Help/hurt/no Impact On Your Fibro?

Does Your Area Help/hurt/no Impact On Your Fibro?

I've heard varying things about how weather, altitude, etc can affect fibro. So I'm wondering, where do you or have you lived, and did you notice any effect on your symptoms?

Personally, I live in northeast PA, always have. I've noticed I have problems with humidity, when storms roll through, and esp since I have Raynauds I'm cold sensitive.

I live in Auckland, New Zealand, and have for the last 30 years. I always know when rain is coming - even if the weather predicts it'll be fine for the next for days, I'm like "No, it'll rain before nightfall", it always rains sometime in the next 24 hours. Last time it was so bad, I felt like I'd taken a tumble down the stairs - everything hurt. Interestingly, I'm usually better in spring and autumn. The summer heat gets to me, and the winter cold feels like it's drilling into my bones.

I live in atlantic Canada. Cold, wet and foggy is normal. We can have hot days in the summer, and the humidity is a killer. We take trips to Las Vegas every summer. And every trip I feel fantastic. The warmth and dry air is such a different environment from my home and I assume it has to be part of the reason why I feel good. I take less medications, have more energy and just generally feel better. My raynauds doesnt occur much and my fatigue is improved.
