Affect of Weather and climate on CFS

Posted , 18 users are following.

I have heard of two people with CFS who believe that sunny climates alleviate their symptoms.  Maybe this is a shot in the dark but I am curious to know whether most of the people in this discussion live in colder climates? Do their symptoms clear when they visit hotter climates.   I am in the UK and my friend is suffering from CFS and I have become very curious about it.

    i have been the opposite, wherby i relax all day in sun, but by tea time am floored, and need to be in bed early. swimming too makes me ill, i end up with vertigo and feel dizzy.

    then i feel floored when i get home from holiday too. not sure if the flying and air pressure, or the water makes a difference.

    l think many people with immune allergy probs, have a problem if too hot or cold, but if warm just being able to sit out in a shady area or potter in your garden lifts the spirits, providing serious allergic rhinitus isnt a big problem.

    l personally think, not proven, but if you live in a country with highly polluted air its going to affect your immune system more negatively.

    l live in a narrow congested valley with  heavy pollution, even living on the hill top preferable to valley bottom. ldeally a few month in the carribean might help, or mauritius whf say as cleanest air. and many older people retire to warmer climates for other health problems athritus improves.  Oh to have the money for a villa in the sun, dream on.

    Hi

    I recently returned from a hot place after a week's holiday and from the moment I arrived the constant pain I had been having disappeared. Needless to say on my return, the pain too returned. I'm currently off work and sometimes wonder if the only way through is to go abroad and emigrate!

      l think thats the problem for many with debilitating conditions, the anxiety build up about how youll manage with the travelling, waiting about, l could even worry about the distances walking in big airports, then the practicals, arrangements for home pets, easy for those with good health energy and can still tire them a bit. l was shattered after a short hop to Belfast, l,d to go sleep for 2hrs, still fell asleep in a theatre when the show was on that evening, arranged by family as treat, embarressing, despite dimmed lights  l,d been seen and teased.

      l couldnt sit in hot sun even on hottest uk days, not many, but love the warmth and light clothing, even looking out the window or sat on a balcony in shade, Just need a very wealthy man to pick me up in a helicopter from local field and drop me off in the sunshine paradise

      its exhausting thinking about it, i wonder why i bother , hate the planning and all the expense, then the aftermath of washing to do.

      ​just wish uk had nicer weather, and hols were cheaper.
