Just wondering....

I've now gone through two winters in Boston while on the anti-pd1 MK-3475 treatment for my stage 4 melanoma.  I have noticed that in the winter my side effects seem to be worse than in the warmer summer months.  I feel so much better in the warm months and experience almost no side effects.  Where in the winter, there seems to be a pressure or squeezing on my organs.  Has anyone else noticed that in the dry, freezing weather that their side effects from the treatments seem to be worse?
