Every year!!!

Posted , 3 users are following.

every year I get worse when the sun comes out, the hotter it gets the more pain I'm in, then winter comes and goes, summer comes and I'm off again! It's happened again, this morning I was working out how I was going to spread my painkillers out when I took the first ones at 2:30am, that's when I realised I'd been there many times before! Anybody else worse in the summer? I wondered if it's due to air pressure, you know, when they say "high pressure" in the summer and low in the winter, is that incredibly stupid? I know I've had enough of it, my joints feel like they're going to pop and muscles have seized up, I'm wobbling about like a drunk and can't hold a conversation. Anyone else feel like this in the summer, worse than the winter.  people keep telling me I need to move to somewhere hot, they think I'm daft when I tell them that doesn't work for me, I'm convinced colleagues thought I was saying it to go off sick in the nice weather.

    Just put my thinking cap on and believe you have hit the nail on the head. Whenever I visited my GP with new symptoms it has always been in hot weather.   Last year was particularly bad and distressing with severe fog apart from the usual aches and pains.  The muscles get so tight and my balance is definitely poorer during the summer. Is it awful to hope the summer isn't too hot?

      No, I do it every year! It is confusing, I love the sunshine even just the wonderful brightness from inside the house but I hate the way I feel! Stabbing pains, shooting pains, pains that throb, pains that ache, pains that scream, staggering, stammering, oohing and erring hmmm maybe we should all move to Iceland? We might meet what's his name there, you know the guy who does those adverts, was married to thingamajig who had those enormous boobs and kids with daft names! Lol sad thing is my hubby would know exactly who I mean haha. Oo Peter something, Jordan, he was married to Jordan! A normal conversation in our house!
