Is a dry climate good for people with arthritis?

You probably know someone who swears they can predict the weather by their arthritis pain. You may even be one of these people.

There’s plenty of anecdotal evidence about the relationship between arthritis symptoms and weather.

Most people who believe their arthritis pain is affected by weather say they feel more pain in cold, rainy weather than in warm, dry weather.

There is some research to support the arthritis-weather connection, but some studies fail to provide conclusive evidence.
