I am just wondering how many of you really struggle with the cold weather? My body is so sensitive to changes in temperature and I just don't know how I can get through the winter with this pain. I read an article earlier that suggests people with Fibro have a lower temperature threshold of 10 degrees less than 'normal' people. So 6 C for them is -6 degrees for us... Air conditioning units are also a nightmare for a flare up.
I should mention that I have Raynaud's too which some of you might also have?
I find it so hard this time of year because of having to really consider whether to go out in the evenings if there's a lot of standing around outside. I can't concentrate at all when the pain gets that bad from the cold.
One of the other things is it can feel mentally very isolating. Kind of like when the fatigue is bad, it's hard to explain to people than it's more than feeling 'a bit tired' or 'a bit chilly'. But it's incapacitating when it's really bad and you have to be in bed by 8pm!
