Exclamation A Question About Neuropathy and Climate ? :)

FIRST IF ALL, I AM NEW TO NERVE ISSUES, I HAVE BEEN SICK FOR JUST OVER ONE YEAR. I have RSD and Neuropathy in my right leg, pretty bad. I have no use of it due to an incomplete spinal cord injury that is slowly working it;s way up my spineal cord. I can tell you when the weather is going to change, (I Live In Rhode Island), I have EXTREMELY BAD symptoms with wild swings in weather, temperature. For example, yesterday it was 55 here and today it is 18, and I am in agony.....if the temp swings back up rapidly, my symptoms worsten as well...Ao now that you know the "Readers Digest" version of my situation...here is my question......I want to move out west.....preferably Colorado. In anyone and everyone's experience....what do you think of this, would the elevation of liviing out in the DRY west reak havok with my symptoms as bad as the DAMP southern new england weather? Any and all input would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, perhaps, but it's hard to say as PN affects people differently, i always looked forward to our winter as the burning wasn't any were near as bad as the summer months here were terrible for me, i know other Pn'ers that absolutely hate the winter as the cold gives them hell and wish they lived in other warmer climates, i guess it's an individual choice.
