@A MyFibroTeam Member i moved from California to Colorado a few years ago. And the elevation does put more pressure on your body, it can effect many energy wise. You can get elevation sickness so you must drink a ron of water. More the. You normally would. I know it sounds crazy but it is a real thing. You can get really sick if you dont. And if your heart starts to ache or you gwt light headed and short of breath you are def not drinking enough water. I think you shoukd be ok. Have a wonderful trip. Make sure to be a jacket. It’s def cooling down out here. And the nights can be cold.

it usually makes me feel better,, we expand a little bit just like a bag of potato chips or any container that you see gets puffed out at higher elevations,, In my mind that means less air pressure on my body and skin,,, its my theory anyway but i usually feel better higher up
