Now, the heat is what kills me, or air pressure changes. We moved from Missouri to South Florida. Instead of dry heat, we now have moist heat and it's worse. Family obligations made us more back to Florida. When those are done, we will be moving to upper NW Washington State. Moderate temps, not a lot or much heat at all, cool temps and very little snow. With the heat here in WPB, FL, I cannot walk much. I have to stay indoors as much as possible. As long as I am cooled down with the A/C and ceiling fans, I am okay, but I miss the outdoors.

I have a lot of allergies and therefore, cannot take ANY medicine for this. I "grin & bear it". I try to stay active in the house and move around, but with 5 and hard tile floors, 2 dogs and a cat, it's not easy.
I lived in Washington state at one time in my life. I'm afraid the damp, coldness would really bother me.
I really need warmth. There was not much warmth in that state.

One thing we do have in common is that the air pressure changes do bother me. I know when a cold front is coming.

I'm sure if I could not have certain medications that I would be not walking much too. I feel bad about your allergies.

I am fine in A/C and air conditioning. It is the winter weather that is so very harsh on me.

I've found I just don't like the winter greyness either of most states. Sunshine, brightness, flowers and greenery makes me smile. With all of that I tend to get out a lot. No more winter, cold days stuck at home.

My research reveals that Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibro Myalgia and Food Allergies are just different expressions of the same problem ME stands for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

Brain training - Activating the Amygdala

The possible cure?
The Gupta Programme - Research

A general search for "gupta program" will give you this:

He has a series of videos explaining the situation.
You should also look up "Amygdala retraining".
You may be able to do a lot for yourself by just following some simple instructions
Gupta Amygdala Retraining

A Mayo Clinic study:

Also do a search "retraining the brain".
It isn't easy - it takes personal discipline to stay with it.

I don't think so. Fibromyalgia/cfs/ME are similar and overlapping but unless it's only in the person's mind, then no form of mind training is going to cure any of it. Researchers are finding consistent deficiencies of certain amino acids and neurotransmitters. The dopaminergic system has been implicated as well as significant levels of tryosine. That's only the tip of the iceberg--it's a problem with metabolism and is very complicated and different in everyone.

A top fibro doctor in the Boston area had (probably still has) fibro patients take 20 minutes of easy aerobic exercise daily. If they are too weak they can do the exercise in a swimming pool. This gets very good results but no one is sure of why--could be something to do with getting oxygen into the affected muscles.

Myself, I was fortunate enough to discover which amino acid I was lacking recently by trial and error, but as I said, everyone is unique.

This is just the abstract of one of the many articles.

Your "research" is quite interesting....

Where is exactly is your lab located?

What is your PHD in?

Did you do the research yourself or did your post grads do the work for you??

Oh, wait....you mean you googled a couple of sites, silly me

This isn't the alternative medicine forum, take the nonsense and voodoo over there.....

Basically it looks like positive thinking. While I agree whole-heartedly (is that spell right?!) a positive mental outlook can greatly increase your quality of life, it just isn't going to be a cure. I've been commended by staff and doctor's at multiple locations for my positive outlook and general kick-ass attitude, but I've never really noticed any difference in my FM if I'm in a funk. Overall it doesn't matter to me, I can either be in a good mood or a bad mood, and I enjoy life more being happy.
