Hi I would like to know if anyone has any towns they can recommend in terms of best support from nhs and local groups for people with arthritis. I also have fibromyalgia. :raining-love:

    Hi Jane and welcome from me too.

    I have this image of you choosing a new home from all over the UK on the basis of where there are good facilities for arthritis :lol: I know that can't be right so which area did you have in mind? And which sort of arthritis? If you could give us a bit more info we could try to help.
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    it's an interesting question, one that's not been asked before. My thoughts are that wherever we live the arthritis comes too so it's up to us to make the best of things, forge contacts and relationships with the docs who deal with us, find social support groups if that's your thing etc. I get on well with my rheumatologist but other patients don't like her; it's all personal taste.

    I have psoriatic arthtritis, osteo and fibro. I don't socialise much because I'm wiped out by 7pm but I socialise on here all the time. I wish you well. DD

    It depends what you you need flat places to live? Think about that
    Do you need places with a good Arthritis Care Group?.....We have a very active group {I might be biased since I'm a volunteer} :lol: 3 or 4 holidays a year, yoga, seated zumba, monthly walks and various other things. BUT I'm in the North East.......the hilliest place you could find so I don't think you'll find a perfect place
    Good luck anyway
