    • I live in Pittsburgh, PA where there are four seasons.  Usually, the summer is when my fibromyalgia and back condition feel the best.  Warm weather with less humidity or dampness is the BEST!  

      If you have chronic pain, does your state have a huge impact on your pain level and wellness?  If you live in a warm climate typically year round, please share where you live.

      With Pittsburgh’s temperature dropping and winter is right around the corner, I am thinking about which states are the best ones to live in for managing chronic pain?

        • wow..amazing that i should see your post..let me explain..this is what i’m going through right now..i have a brain disorder which has left me with numerous neurological deficiencies.  While i long for the warm weather during this time of year (I’m in New Jersey)..i simply can not take the cool mornings, warm afternoons and coller evenings..this weather is taking a toll on my head and body.  I can definitely relate to what u speak of.  In the summertime, i am good to go, and yes, i love the heat because the pain goes away.
          BTW, i get my treatments from the best doctors, and guess where they r? Yes, at UPMC..they have saved my life, and r an incredibly team of dedicated professionals.
          I, like u have thought of moving as well, to a much warmer climate..like hawaii, because when i am there, i do not experience the pain..but i’m still in treatment, and can’t budge yet..i would say that it’s a difficult decision as we would have to consider where our family, friends and doctors are..

        • I’m in the Central valley part of CA. When it is warm or hot the little aches are better. I do get more stiffness in one hip and low back in this cooler, foggy weather we‘re having now.

        • I live in NY, and since I had surgery on my foot, it seems like whenever there’s inclement weather like rain or snow, it aches, but overall the cold or the heat doesn’t bother me. Like yesterday and today, (it’s snowing now) I’ve been squeaking and creaking all over, and stiff going in and out or up and down stairs.

        • The colder weather really affects my fibromyalia pain and any barometric change.  I also think about moving and may someday.

        • I don’t have pain issues despite living in the cold alhough, my Mom does. Curiously though, I do get hives when the thermometer hits below 10. Believe it or not, cold weather is a top reason for hives.

          Cradicella, I live in Hawaii for 12 years, it is the perfect climate since the temp stays relatively even. Although, it is very expensive.

        • The cold weather definitely affects me..the pain associated with Fibromyalgia can take a toll on many days..and the warm, and even hot, dry weather is wonderful..also, barometric changes and dampness affect me horribly as I am allergic to molds and suffer with sinus issues.
