New member here. I’ve had RA for almost 20 years and I’ve lived in Colorado the whole time. I am pretty well under control with Simponi infusions. Life happens, lost my long time friend and companion recently, and I have to sell and move. Looking at Gulf Coast, near Venice, North Port, Sarasota area, where I have a lot of great family. I have read that the humidity wreaks havoc on RA. I grew up on east coast so humidity not a stranger. But the cold weather here is getting to me..I’m a very active almost 74, still ride my horses, have dogs and kitties, care for 5 acres, etc. I want to get excited about moving. I do hope to have a pool or access to one.. would that help?
Can anyone share their RA experiences about Florida weather? Is there any good news? Also have fear about leaving my wonderful rheumatologist in Denver and hope I can find someone I trust.
I’ve also looked at Tucson AZ but there is something called Valley Fever there which is scary for RA patients.
Thanks for any input you may have 😊
