I'm lucky, my rheum has a physician's assistant who actually has Fibro. She really understands, but she has NO MERCY for me. I get the exercise lecture everytime I go in. I do exercise, I work very hard, but it's not the kind that gets your heart rate up enough. That releases endorphins or something that helps with the pain. It's very hard for me to do that kind of stuff since I have a spur on my heal. Hurts to walk much. And yes, the weather is AWFUL! I was totally miserable last winter and I've very worried about this winter, because my DH is relying on me to do part of the snow plowing contracts we've picked up. Can you see that? Early mornings like 4am (I don't get enough sleep as it is) cold wet weather. I'm trying to put on my happy face and tell myself it's going to be ok. Hey, does anybody else have trouble regulating their body temp? When my feet get cold, I can't get them warm myself. If I put socks on, it's like I'm insulating the cold in. It can take hours for me feet to warm up at night, and I can't sleep with cold feet. I've been using heated rice packs or take a hot bath before bed. Just wondering if anybody else has that problem.
