    Heat, Humidity and Air Conditioning

    Does anyone feel the effects of heat even when they tryto stay in air conditioning? I keep my air at about 73-74 degrees but when it gets so hot outside I feel lethargic, muscle aches and headaches. Sometimes I have to go out ( life, right??) and try to go in the cooler mornings. On the days I go from air to hot car to air, etc… I feel sick and I get that. I don’t understand why I still feel such even when I’m indoors with air on.
    The filters are clean, the air conditioning unit doesn’t have mold … I’m getting NOTHING done and it just feels awful.
    Do you think this is MCTD ???

    I'm new here!

    Hi. New to this site. Would like to hear what kind of natural approaches to MCTD you have used that have helped you. Also, how do you go about finding a rheumatologist/Dr that is open to a naturopathic as well as medicinal approach to treatment, in the Portland, OR area. Thanks

    Burning feet and Fibro?

    Hello, I’m not new to this forum but never posted before. Before I start I want to thank each and every one of you for sharing your stories. I gain so much insight about others suffering from chronic illness and don’t feel a alone in this world because of all of you! I appreciate your honesty, courage and tenacity to live your life hurting everyday and then find the energy to share your story. It is inspiring !
    Now for the question at hand… Does anyone have debilitating foot pain with fibro? I have always had foot issues and have gotten cortisone shots in the past for plantar fasciitis but never have before experienced the burning pain that is crippling me at this time. My feet are constantly on fire and are so incredibly sensitive to the touch. It is difficult to wear shoes and walk. I also had Covid in January and it seems to have gotten worse since then? Can anyone relate to this issue? I appreciate your time and look forward to your responses! Gentle hugs and good vibes always🤗✌️ #Fibromyalgia #MixedConnectiveTissueDiseaseMCTD #Depression #Anxiety #
