AWFUL - 1
I spent about a week in London in Summer 1995, when I was first starting to get ME/CFS.
I then returned for the entire summer of 1997, living in an apartment in Surbiton (a suburb of London). I spent a few nights in Manchester and a few nights in Stratford-upon-Avon, and took a lot of day trips.
I felt really horrible on both of these trips, much worse than anywhere else at the time.
I felt a bit better in Stratford-upon-Avon than I did anywhere else. We stayed in a very old inn (called The White Swan) there. (3-FAIR)
Sue P. Essex coast, Clacton on Sea Score: 8 I was feeling ill prior to getting there and felt ill again once I was home, yet whilst there I could function at almost "normal" levels.The prevailing winds blow from the sea on this coast and our local [midland] doctors often advise asthma sufferers to visit east coast resorts to ease their breathing.
I lived on Dartmoor near Chagford for nearly two years. My symptoms dramatically escalated, I found it very hard to get out. My pain increased all through my body. I got stabbing ice pick headaches. My mood got very low and I was really depressed. We found out on moving there that the levels of Radon are extremely high in that area so I think that as well as the damper weather must explain why I became so ill. Since moving to the North coast of Devon I experience far less pain and am in general more positive and lead a more active life. We live right on the estuary very near the sea I am sure this helps me stay stable. The light is excellent, even in winter it's much brighter. It has been a rough autumn health wise for me this year but I am still far better than I have been living elsewhere in the UK.
