Cold Weather & Fibromyalgia

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Cold weather and fibromyalgia DO NOT go together. As if FM isn't bad enough on it's own. Cold weather increases the pain three fold. I have been spending a lot of time in bed, on my heat pad, and therefore don't have very much to show for my exercise. I love the cold, but my body doesn't anymore!

I know this isn't much of a blog, but at least it's something!

Be blessed! emoticon

    Bundle up and feel better! Would doing some yoga at home help? Warm up the muscles and loosen the joints? I feel chilled to the bone all day it seems!

    Looks like it's warming up though - yay!

    Do what you have to do to feel as good as you can---- while you can't exercise, focus on your nutrition! Focusing on something closely will strengthen that skill and make you feel less guilty about the exercise part! You are doing excellent!

    i agree.though this year i bought some thermals and haven't been as bad as usual for this time of year.I'm also lucky i have an open coal fire which gives out a lot of heat for my shoulders i bought one of those fleese wraps it looks like a T long at the back and the two shorter sides over shoulder down front it also has 2 pockets damart sell them i would be lost without mine it's when it's wet i have the most problems so i try to get everything done and base most of my day in the living room or dining room where i have coal fires. Hope you feel better soon emoticon emoticon carol
