    You could try Singapore. It rarely changes in temperature all year long.
    I'm from Burma & I've lived in Singapore for 8 years now.
    I find both places tolerable. May be my body is well adapted to equatorial climates. However, there are more shades (shades everywhere) in Singapore.
    I have been to Sydeny-GC-Perth area in winter, but found it quite toerable too.
    I've yet to experience UK winter. I will do that this coming winter. I'm not sure if the cold gives me stiffness but I know I do not like fan running the whole night. It always gave me fever.

    I live in Georgia. You get all the seasons. I learn to hate fall and spring. It can get very humid here too. I really believe that weather/enviroment has a lot to do with Lupus symptoms. We vacation in Spain every year. Perks being married to a Spaniard. It's a drier climate but very sunny. It seems as though my lupus symptoms went away for two weeks.

    Hi,
    I'm not sure what to do. The cold makes me achy, but I can handle it. Mainly I've found in the winter seems to bring on more depression, and fatigue. Now the sun, and humidity is a whole different experience. The Sun burns me literally, like I'm on fire. I was in FL, the sun burned my skin instantly, even if it wasn't Direct exposure. I cannot breathe in the humidity. Any advice on where might be best for me? I'm in Nebraska wright now. I can't breath at all here.

    Come to Arizona!!! Beautiful in the winter & hot in the summer...But you can always cool off in the pool or your house A/C during the summer runs 24/7. It is worth for both hubby and I. He has RA really bad & my Lupus does well here. Snow is fine for a visit, but not to live in. Very reasonable in housing. It is also a "dry" heat....Which means you don't have moisture like in Florida!!!!!!:flower::Pixie::rose:

    Hi,
    I have also experienced the same thing. In winter or if a spend more time in AC i will feel more pain in my joints. I usually wear all winter clothes even in summer since i was unable to go and work in office because of the AC there.

    The answer might be different for everyone with their unique body intolerances for temperatures
