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!

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

Life comes in specific increments, which we receive as a gift of one moment at a time. That's why it's called

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. emoticon emoticon emoticon

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.

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

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.

Maybe it's the awful heat.
