Re: heat is increasing pain now

Maybe you have some inflammation rearing it's ugly head. I am having the same problem, but since doc started me on prednisone swelling and pain have decreased in my hands as well as other joints. My hands and wrists still give me a little trouble but not as bad a before. Maybe you could check with your doctor to see if there isn't something inflammatory going on.

Re: heat is increasing pain now

Hi April,

When it comes to the heat I feel much worse. For me it is that I do not do well in the heat and get sick from it. Even before I had Fibro I could not take the heat well. So when the heat comes I have stay inside to feel comfortable and not be in so much pain. I sweat so much that the docs told me to drink gatorade or something along those lines at least once a day so my electrolites stay balanced. You could say that I do not like the heat.

When I do get over-heated I have thrown up and I get very dizzy. The docs do not know why. To answer your question, yes, I feel worse in the heat.

I hope it cools down some.

Peace and love,

"Compassion can help heal our world"
