Hi to the forum! I am an expat living in southern Spain for health reasons. I use the internet for up to the minute info on research etc. Today I decided to sign up again after seeing other people´s comments about feeling worse with humidity which felt very supportive for me after a very bad night.
Normally of course the weather in August is difficult for me and I have to be very careful of heat intolerance. Some years I have serious flareups at this time - last year being exceptionally bad with consistent temperatures for weeks over 40 degreesC.
However the problem at the moment is a sudden spate of high humidity with much cloud and heat and no breezes. The pain in my joints during the night was of a very high order especially in my left knee… Ordinary pain killers could not touch the level of pain. Given the normal dry conditions here this makes a very strong case for the damage that humidity can cause people. Looking for solutions at the moment: quite likely to buy some Capaisin (a very spanish solution); I will be more careful about staying hydrated with water. Anyone got any other ideas please about managing what I hope is a temorary situation?
