My Annual Fall Fall

Fall would be my favorite season, but for some reason my health declines each autumn.  From 2001 – 2008, my optic neuritis would come each fall and be gone by spring.  Starting in 2008, it stopped going away in spring, but since then I get pain behind my right eye in November.  Also, I get awful acne, apparently from my rosacea, but I’m not convinced that is the cause.  Over the past month or so, I’ve felt the benefits of my CCSVI angioplasty slip away.  My hand strength is declining and my fatigue is increasing.  It’s pretty discouraging.  I had another Doppler ultrasound to see if my jugular veins are still open, but won’t know the results for a couple of weeks as the doc is away from the office.

I can’t figure out what it is about fall that brings about a decline in my health.  What is it about this time of year that throws my body for a loop?
