Does Weather (Heat And Humidity) Have An Affect On Ra?

Hi, I'm getting ready to move to North-East Florida from Northern California and was wondering if weather (hot/Cold/humidity) plays a part in aggravating RA symptoms? I've had RA for a year now (living in Northern Ca), and haven't noticed any big difference from season to season with my symptoms. Any opinions?

Thanks for your help.

Bret

Hi Bret,

I think I'm the opposite of a lot of people because hot humid weather makes me flare more. I live in Maryland and summertime is miserable for me because it can get so humid. My joints much prefer snow and cold weather.
