I'm diabetic too... with kidney problems... talk about heat issues! I had problems with the heat before I had the fibro! LOL
Drink lots of water, and swim in it when you can too... it does make a difference if you can stay cool!
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL
I can't say all of us with Fibro, but a lot of us have trouble with the heat. I know that I am. I can only say do what you can and maybe try ice for you feet. I will soak mine for a long as possible to help with the swelling.

I have been having more trouble lately as well. I think it is related to the heat. The FM pain has increased and I have swelling in my hands & feet that I have not had since beginning SP program. I am hoping this will too go away!!
Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner. Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

I often tell people that my fibromyalgia isn't too bad; that I have more fatigue than pain, but that's slowly changing and I don't know why.
I actually have a bit more energy now (likely exercise and nutrition related) but I'm also hurting more. I have osteoarthritis in my feet - not my toes, but the joints in the feet - and they're really hurting. That I know is directly related to walking, etc, despite my good shoes. But I'm also hurting in my fingers, my muscles... it's discouraging.
