Yesterday, I started with the first flare of RA that I've had in ages!!!! I'm so upset because it was in remission and I was starting to feel better than I had in a very long time. It was so wonderful. I have very mild case of it for the most part. I was just wracking my brain as to what caused this flare and then I realized I sat out in the sun for a little while after I went swimming. I sure hope this flare doesn't last months like the usually do. I'd take prednisone but I have pre diabetes and it will shoot my blood sugar close to 300. Ugh! I hate this!
Does anyone else here flare from the sun?
