are there ever any days when it doesn't hurt or when the flares are not bad... how long can a flare last...sometimes, I can't get out of my chair and have trouble getting off of the toilet and then 5 minutes later I am able to do both without any help.... this stuff just does not make any sense at all...I have not been able to get into the bed without my wife's help for the past 2 months and have been walking with a walker since Christmas...how does one excersise through this

Virgil,
It can and does get better. For sure, it doesn't get any worse than what you're feeling now. That's the good news.
I'm only 50 and got so bad last year I was disabled. I walked with a cane, sometimes had to be taken places in a wheelchair. Now I have a great mix of medications and I'm getting more and more "abled". I hope to go back to work full-time soon. I can exercise now...although I had to start very slowly with just 5 minutes on a treadmill, working up to 45 minutes (now).
Take heart!
