John, sorry about your wife's diagnosis. Maybe if they got her meds straight, she might feel better, even in the rain. I have lived in SE Georgia, Jacksonville and Tallahassee. It's so hard to say about locations and how you will feel. Sometimes humidity is a factor. If I had the money, I'd be in San Diego right now. Also, fluctuations in barometric pressure can make the RA feel worse.
The closer your live to the beach in the SE, the less rain you get. West of 95, you get more rain. Summers can be a rough time for me b/c of the humidity and showers. I think we all feel best in fair weather! I had a doctor tell me to move to Arizona but I am a beach person.
Some people get a little relief from taking a good fish oil. I take one called Maxi Tears and I can tell a difference.
