Seasons and flares

I'm curious - with FM, do you typically find that the winter season is the hardest, or is another season the most difficult?

Re: Seasons and flares

Winter and spring for me. Winter because of the cold and spring because of all the rain and the weather being all over the place.

Re: Seasons and flares

That is actually a tricky question. I have a difficult time in summer with fatigue and joint pain when the sun is giving me problems. I have to say though that stiffness and achiness and the aching joints seem to be worse if it is a cold and wet winter or spring. It seems the cold and damp is the worst for pain, but the sun is the worse for fatigue and lack of energy.

Re: Seasons and flares

gojer...i live in FL, and the sun actually helps me, even just 15 min a day.....i take 2000 mg vit d also. the sun is natural vit d, and is suppose to be good for fibro, at least it is for me....but, all of us are different.

i have only lived in FL for 4 yrs, living in new england all my life. i really was in flares alot yr round up there...if i had to pick my best season, it would be late spring before the summer comes, and after the rainy part of spring.

Re: Seasons and flares

Thanks to all for the replies. I haven't had a really good period yet. The fall/winter was horrible with the cold and this spring has been so rainy that I've found no relief yet. I'm hoping the summer will bring some relief, but I'm afraid the sum will make the fatigue worse.
