Here in N. Ireland we will be getting the same heat wave - can't say I've noticed any worsening.

That's a big step - not to have been taking any medications since February. If you keep forgetting to go to the Pain Clinic, perhaps your symptoms in general, are actually not as bad as they previously were, even if at times they are playing havoc ?

My symptoms are worse on cold, drizzly days when I am working outside and have gotten wet.

Polar bear, no the symptoms are just as bad , i have music on the pain clinic days and forget to go as i love music so much. I also get it worse after ive been walking several miles, which is annoying as i like excersize.

there was no choice , I had to stop the meds as they were making my tinnitus worse and thats way toooo hard to handle.

badnights i dont notice a difference in the wet and cold ,than goodness as its like that a lot here, but if your bothered more then , then maybe it is the heat that is making it worse.

i was out sailing today, beautiful day and also walked bout four miles and yes on way back in the car rls went crazy and now its niggling but am moving all the time just have to.
