I don't know why, but I feel the same. We had a cold front go through here and I am thoroughly crashed for the past two days I did nothing but sleep. The only good thing about it is that I didn't have to take anything for sleep.:rolleyes:

Your profile pics look so similar I thought it was the same one in the corner of my eye.
But yes, I'm worst in hot humid weather, but crappy winterry weather isn't great either.
I'm probably best on those cool, blue sky days.

I'm better on sunny days with no humidity and still. Slight breeze is OK too.
I'm really terrible with wind and humid. Clouds and cold is not good, makes me even more fatigued. Wind makes me very dizzy.

People with arthritis often complain that their arthritis pain is much worse when the weather becomes colder and wetter.

Weather change does not affect me as bad as the Fall, Brutalll for me.
I've heard that autoimmune plp get worst on fall ( not sure if it is truth).

Cold and damp is the worst combination for me. The very first days when the weather is changing (from summer to fall) I am also experimenting major emotional stress - on top of the physical pain increase. Just now in fact !
