Brie, I didn't understand all this flare stuff when I joined this forum either but sadly I know very well now. There are different degrees of flares like there are different degrees of pain level and fatigue. Some may be weather related and only last for hours til the weather changes and some may last for weeks or months.
We are finally having a nice day today after days of rain and gloomy weather but my body feels worse today, makes no sense to me. The pain has increased and more burning pain, my body feels weaker, I noticed this in my legs when walking, I have a worse headache and I just in general do not feel well. Kinda like I'm coming down with something but I'm sure it is a fibro flare. I'm tired and have no motivation. I have been stressing a little the past couple of days so that could very well be it. I will give it up for today and hope tomorrow is a better day.
luv and hugs
