    Hi mosheat, Sorry i didnt see you post until now,i have adhesive arachnoiditis too. I didnt move but i live in texas where its warm most of the year but humid but no snow & rarely freezing weather. Did you want to ask if it made a difference in pain being in warm location because i think it helps some just going by friends with arach in ireland, canada, new jersey, colorado & nebraska. I definitely dont suffer as many nerve symptoms in my feet & legs as much as they do & as much pain is subjective but i personally hurt more in the winter,buy its so much shorter of a winter & they suffer many months longer about 3-5 months more. How are you doing being that its summertime everywhere now?

    Re: arachnoiditis and climate

    I don't know specifically about AA, but with most diseases that affect the nerves in a similar way, more than the cold, it is the humidity that has the effect.

    However, some recent studies have shown that while moving to a dry climate has a beneficial result initially, within two years the body adjusts and gets used to the new climate. So it doesn't really help to "try" a new climate for a few months. You may feel better, but it will probably be temporary.

    Hi,
    warm is good but NO humidity; this is what so bad for pain. I have AARC also plus auto-immune conditions which doing better when the weather is warm.
    I was told by my RA that moving to a warm weather climate is not good enough, it has to be Dry Heat, only than I can expect some pain and inflammation relieve.

    Best of luck to you
    Moldova

    Re: arachnoiditis and climate

    Hi moldova, I think with Texas & NJ there will be humidity hands down! I rarely have snow or ice or freezing temps but i usually do worse in the winter weather even though mild. Do the freezing temps make you hurt as much as humidity?
