Springtime and Fibromyalgia

A study performed in 1981 found that a large number of fibromyalgia patients may actually be weather sensitive. In that study, 90% of patients reported that weather was one of the most common triggers of their fibromyalgia symptoms. Weather triggers included temperature changes, changes in air pressure and changes in precipitation. With springtime just around the corner, it is not unusual to see these types of drastic weather changes. With that said, it is not usual to see an increase in your symptoms.
How do you fare during the spring months (mid-March through mid-June)? What effect does the weather have on your symptoms and which ones do you see in an increase of?
