I would like to ask if living in a more constant warm area , like Nevada or Arizona, is a help to fibro sufferers.  My doctor seems to think it might be a good option since the house is in foreclosure and hubby's job is closing the doors Friday.  Can I say STRESSED OUT.  Thanks for sharing.  Jackie

Welcome to our board, Jackie. I am glad that you found us. This is a great support group and it sounds like you need that. Please feel free to ask any question - we all have different opinions from different experiences, Feel free to vent.

I am sorry that your house is being foreclosed on and your husband is losing his job. That must be very stressful and not help your fibro. I have vacation in both Nevada and Arizona. Both are too humid for me. Hawaii is my goal for retirement, but is very expensive. I hope you are able to find a place that is good for you. Have you tried to refinance your house? I know there was a bill passed to help out people like you.

I hope that you will continue to post so we can get to know you better. I care about everyone on this board.

Hi Jackie, my husband and I moved out here to Arizona because we thought it might be better for me since I have fibromyalgia, arthritis, along with other medical ailments.

Hi, and welcome to the board.


I'm in Georgia too. I can't say the hot, humid south does me any good...nor the cold. My ideal temperature range is between 70-80...with low humidity (not many places in the world like that!). I'm sensitive to both hot and cold and I found that the cold in Georgia goes right through me because of the higher humidity, as does sitting in A/C if it is turned down too cold.

I'm also from Georgia and the weather here is awful. I missing living in Wyoming. That was my perfect climate. Though I don't mind the cold.

My son will be done with high school in 6/2010 and then off to college. At that time I would like to move to a better climate. I live in New Jersey and it actually snowed here already, we had 14 inches on the mountain before Halloween.

I can't stand the cold, heat and humidity. I need to find a place where there is no humidity and in the 70's.

Does anyone know of such a place?

Peace & Love

Hawaii is the only place that I know of that is in the 70-80's with low humidity, but it is very expensive to live there. Good Luck looking for a place.
