New Trigger, possible new treatment

Humidity is as hard on me as cold. I had a really tough time in Vancouver when the temps ranged from 32-38 C and the humidity is so much higher than we are used to on the prairie. The King took me for an infrared sauna in our hotel. It was amazing and I was able to make it through the rest of the trip without falling into flare.

I've been home for awhile but have been so busy that I haven't posted. I wanted to document this before I forgot. I am suffering today because I did too much and kept pushing myself without rest. This week I will have to take it easier than I'd planned. It's back to school soon and I need to be well for that.


  1. Hope you're rested & feeling better soon! Humidity totally wipes me out too.

  2. Hey Queen and the pea,
    It seems like most people who suffer with fibromyalgia have the same reaction to humidity. I wonder what it is about it that makes symptoms flare up. I'm Hua, the Director of Wellsphere's HealthBlogger Network. I've been searching the web for quality health blogs and am thrilled that I found yours. There is so much information here for people with fibromyalgia.

    I think your blog would be a really great addition to the Fibromyalgia Community. I invite you to join and find more information about us at http://www.wellsphere.com/health-blogger.
