Can the Change of Seasons or the Weather Impact My Fibromyalgia Symptoms?

Read Transcript

Recent research suggests that a change of season and weather does not actually really impact fibromyalgia, although from patient testimonials many of them will say that cool dry weather is much more comfortable for them than humid or wet weather. This is also true in patients who have arthritis who complain of worsening symptoms in rainy weather.

But this like in fibromyalgia has not been borne out in the scientific research. Because fibromyalgia is often linked to depression and depressive symptoms. Nicer weather when patients can go out and see their friends and exercise, can ultimately affect their pain.
