Does anyone else get fibro fog when it's hot out? I feel like I can't focus or function in the summer or in a hot kitchen- but I haven't seen anything about a possible relationship between the two after skimming through a dozen-ish articles. Is it something else? Or is this common?

      I think it’s common.. this was me last night in the kitchen.. I felt like I was lost or something.. I couldn’t remember exactly what I was cooking.. and then I messed up the steps to what I was cooking.. and I cook salmon all the time smh.. I kept feeling confused .. it’s starting to happen more often now than it use too

      I have triggers for both heat and cold, and they worsen other conditions of mine, including fibro. I think the heat makes my cognition worse, and so does cold, but for different reasons.

      I have def noticed both a sensitivity to cold AND hot 🙃 winter is hard and summer is hard bit honestly summer is worse... I also have noticed that my panic and anxiety get worse in the heat or humidity

        @JustRachelle The worst thing is I work in kitchens so I'll mess up orders when it's busy... I space out or can't read or just go through motions without making sure everything is correct.

      I have heat sensitivity, I have to keep my room very cold. Most people seem to be sensitive to cold with fibro but I'm the opposite, heat makes everything worse.

        @KirbyWirby Yes thank you!! I legitimately don't think I have met anyone else like this. Everyone's "seasonal depression" happens in winter, but that's the only time I can think clearly. The heat makes me sick and tired, and confused

          @Anth yes, summer is MISERABLE for me, especially since I live in the southern US it's too hot! I have to keep it like in the 60s in my room to be able to do ANYTHING (even then it's usually not a lot, but hey! Progress is progress!)
