I can't walk outside if it is windy and cold, Kathy - my eyes close down, even though I wear glacier wrap-around sunglasses. The winter sun is very low as well and that becomes a problem. Inside I don't find my eyes are any different.

This may sound odd - but when my eyes are feeling tired and gritty and want to close - I stick my head out the door WHEN IT'S DARK and NOT WINDY and the cold air feels great. I think it is the heat in the house. BEB is such a strange disorder!

Nancy in NE.Pa where it's a nippy 20 degrees and am going to go stick my head out the door now!!
Also going to "see" Neil Diamond on Sunday - he's one of my husband's favorites. Anyone ever see him in concert?

Kathy,

I live in Maine have have trouble with cold, wind and intense sunlight. And if there is a fresh snowfall - forget about it. If I do have to go outside on those days I'll go as far as wearing ski goggles over my sunglasses (glacier glasses) for relief.
I also have chronic pain and I am hyper-sensitive to weather changes. It causes pain for me in my neck, shoulders and face. I get both muscle and nerve pain. What works for me is to stay as warm as possible - hot baths, hot drinks, soup, heating pads etc. I love any thing made of fleece on bad pain days. I throw my jackets and scarfs etc in the dryer to warm them up, and then wrap my self in it. I find it soothing. I also do relaxation tapes and deep breathing techniques. And you know what? If all that doesn't work, I take some medicine, and go to bed. Sometimes it is best not to fight it. Be good to yourself on high pain days.
Take care,
Denise

Thanks, Denise. i was thinking of you also on this question. Very good advice. This happens to me inside , however, also. I did go outside to cover my hydrangea bush. Oh, my gosh, was it cold!

Hi Kathy, After enduring the cold, I hope your hydrangea survives to bring beauty into your world. I'm sorry your eyes are giving so much pain. My BOTOX injections of February 12 were among the better ones I've had and have given considerable relief ... except for the blasted bright lights.

Today is beautiful, but chilly. One can sense that spring is actually stirring under the patches of snow.
