AZ good for Arthritis?

I have had Arthritis for a couple years now and keeps getting worse to the point I have to live on Celebrex and heating pads.

I still work and try and keep as active as I can but these past 6 months have been brutal.

I heard that AZ is a great climate for those with Arthritis which is one reason we want to get on with our FT. Semi-retirement.

Just curious if there are others out there with Arthritis and what climates do you find the best relief.....

AZ brought me great relief.

Humidity is my enemy.

We spend Oct to April at Rincon East RV Park in Tucson where living with our arthritis is tolerable. As Campdaven states, humidity is the enemy and humidity is low to non existent in Tucson.

We heard on news yesterday that Turmeric spice is great for fighting arthritis. But best results come in cooking it with your food vs tablet form.

I really do not like taking prescription medication unless I have to. So unless I just can not take the discomfort any longer I take the Celebrex and even it is not helping as much as it used to.

Oh well.... sometimes getting older is the pits as I try to stay as active as always my body likes to remind me I am not 20 any more. I am going to try Turmeric and see how that works...

Glucosamine, condroitin and MSM have helped me enormously. The dry southwest air is part of my medicine.
Occasional Tylenol, like when the barometer flexes really hard
