Cold Weather

Cold Weather

I have noticed the cold weather/ winter causes flare up to worsen. I am feeling more this year. Can I ask does age makes fibromyalgia and chronic pain and fatigue worse?. This is because since I turn 40 my pain levels have worsen and uncontrollable😩😩

So sorry about your son and the loss of your dear
husband.

Sometimes, you have to do what's
best for You, and
live life the best you can. That may mean cutting ties with people who are toxic and cause you stress. Many
toxic people have
issues of their own, but, blame others.

From personal experience, I can tell you, it may make your life Much happier, if you distance yourself from stressful people.

Your daughter and her husband
sound very supportive. Build
on that positive relationship.

Sorry, didn't mean to ramble, but, "been there, done that" experience.

Blessings for less pain, more
Peace and Happiness. 🙏💗

I’m 68 and my pain has gotten worse over time. Extreme temperatures keep me indoors. Intense cold is the worst for my fibro especially if it is damp.

Ernestine, I wasn’t diagnosed until I was 47. That was 20 years ago. I suffered with fibromyalgia since childhood. But when I turned 40 or maybe 38 I really started having a lot of more pain etc. I was worried I might have cancer, and they just didn’t find it. Finally I received my diagnosis of fibromyalgia. The pain and fatigue and stiffness got worse with each decade. I received a diagnosis of osteoarthritis and Osteoporosis as well. So some of my pain is from that. The constant weather changes cause a lot of pain for me. This year is a lot colder too.
You’re doing well to work, I couldn’t do that.

Hi Ernestine..

Yes it did for me. I was diagnosed at 41 and had to retire on ill health grounds at 57. But remember everyone is different...there is no certainties with this horrid disease. Try not to think too far ahead...listen to your body and be guided by how you feel x

Oh Millie! Your story is very emotional 😓. I pray your relationship with your daughter continue to thrive. Your son will come round one day but it may be too late. Keep hopeful and courageous.
