Hey neighbor! You’re in good company here. I live in Sumner (Pierce County but not Tacoma for you fancy East Side addresses). @ander454 Erik lives in Seattle, I forget where exactly.
Better in the summer? I totally wasn’t but I was trialing and failing meds. One reason you might consider is Vitamin D. Getting any outside of our brief summer sun? We need lots. Every person here should be supplementing. Our area has two related things - low vitamin D and a high risk for developing MS. MAV is neuro-biochemical and may be more like MS in its origins than not, especially for those of us who’s autonomic systems have lost the plot. @MNEK18 Kirsty I’m sure can speak to that.
Are there reasons this summer had lower triggers than the rest of the year? Did your lifestyle change? What’s different about summer?
We have folks from every climate and altitude here. MAV seems indiscriminate. But we do react badly to changes in barometric pressure. There’s a thread here about that from last year. Search that and you’ll find a link to a list of average barometric pressure changes by major city and region. Look for some place with boring, not too hot weather. Good luck finding a decent job there.
