I live in Pa. Today quickly reminded me that cold/cool air is so very painful for me with no relief once I am cold.
I have 1 area on my lower back that if it gets even cool or damp air I am in agony. The Dr's assume it is a nerve thing. Once cold air hits it there is no return from the pain & spasms that hit me. I do go right to bed as we have a water bed, but even that does not remove the pain completely but does handel the crisis level of OMG pain..
My question is do any of you this issue? & What do you do to keep from cold or damp getting to your injured area?
A coat makes NO difference - or I obviously would not be asking this questions lol
The damp/cold air goes right through any coats I have. We are able to buy me one for about 150.00 $ ( max ! ) but what material am I looking for that won't allow the air to seep through?
Or does any one else know of any "tricks" to keep warm ?
Hubby has to go and start the car for me until it is warmed up or I am in a mess of pain real quick.
He describes me best - in cold weather he says I am like the Tin Man I just freeze up.
It's like that part of my injury is a magnet to cold or dame air and draws it in :<
