In brief: Arthritis

Because some people with arthritis are worse with cold weather, then living in a warmer climate should help.

In brief: Chronic high pressur

Areas touted to be best include parts of arizona, nevada, and southern cal, because there are few low pressure fronts, hence less aching.
Worse-pacific northwest, great lakes (buffalo, cleveland), becuase of more frequent low pressure sytems bringing in rain, snow. Tthe fall in pressure makes arthritis ache. However, I have never heard a patient tell me there was enough difference to actually move!
