Worried about summer

Apr 03, 2017 7:39 PM

Is anyone else here worried about summer? The heat and humidity always kill me, but it's already started in spring. I don't remember ever feeling this pain in 67 degree weather. Furthermore, I walked a little over a mile yesterday and was winded/in pain. To compare, a few years ago I walked 18 miles in one day. Although not the norm, I love to hike and all. I'm going to Alaska and I'm so worried I won't be able to fully enjoy things. 😕

I'm worse in winter. The cold kills me. But I don't like it when it gets real hot. I am hurting worse now. So I don't know how I will do in the heat.

My pain got worse last winter so I'm not really sure what to expect. Joint pain seems worse when it's colder but I'm not sure about the rest. I don't handle things well when it's real hot and humid but I feel like even that would be an improvement on the current situation where it goes from snowing, to 65F, to snowing again in the span of a few days (gotta love Ohio weather)

I'm in Ohio too, so I can relate 💜

I have 9 herniated discs and the cold absolutely kills me. I'm actually looking forward to the summer even though I despise being hot and sweaty because it makes my back pain minimal.
