Is it possible to only have this in the Wintertime?

Tresa - March 16

I have had all these symptoms for around 10 years with a gradual worsening of symptoms each year. The weird thing is, in the Summertime, I really don't have much pain at all. I forget I have it. But Winter hits and I am down for the count. My SKIN hurts on the tops of my legs front and back, backs of my arms, joints and tendons sore in various places, not always the same places.
Why does it get worse in the Winter? I thought maybe the lack of D.. Anybody know?

Hi Tresa: What happens to your skin when you get a chill? goose bumps of course. What happens when your body gets cold? The muscles contract to try to stay warm. Yes, Fibromyalgia seems worse in the winter because of the weather. Stay warm. Happy Holidays

I am also much worse in the winter-I am sure there are so many variables involved including depression, boredom etc. Next Oct. I am going to try light therapy (lights are available on the internet and at some pharmacies). This therapy has been successful in treating a variety of problems including bipolar disorder. Also, if you live in a northern climate it is advisable to increase vitamin D intake-study the research, it makes sense. Hope this is helpful.

Hm, I have it all year, but taking cod liver oil for the A&D vitamin might help some. With our daylight getting longer here I seem to feel in a better mood lately.
