Shoes and changes in size with weather, humidityPosted by Linda V on 1/17/05 at 07:06 (167390)
It seems whenever I go to a warm climate from a wintery NH, my feet swell a bit. I have needed to go to a shoe store and buy new sneakers in Aruba and Florida. I imagine its a combination of the heat, the coronas, and diet..as I am the type of person who can't get my rings off after eating chinese food or other salty foods.
My question is...does this level off or after I move south? Does the body adjust after a few weeks, or am I going to need to replace ALL my shoes and resize the rings?
And...when you southerners come up north...do you find your shoes and rings get looser?

Good question. I would like to hear any stories myself.

I have learned the old saying that peoples blood gets thinner down south is completely false. My brother works for a cardiac catheter company in Florida...and he said the viscosity does NOT change a bit. Which makes sense, because all the snowbirds Coumadin doses would be changing constantly.
I am not overweight, have no edema, in pretty good shape for a 50 year old with resolving PF....but BOY does temperature affect the fit of my shoes and rings.
