Sorry you are hurting Libby. When we are flaring everthing seems to go haywire. Stress
will make a flare worse amd kick up the anxiety, It is a viscious cycle. Do what you can
to keep the stress down. I do my deep breathing exercises to get my stress down. Take a
long hot bath, listen to some music. Use the bed buddy, heating pad you know the drill.
Flares can come out of nowhere, most of my flares are do to overdoing, stress, lack of
sleep and crummy weather. Pamper yourself but keep youself moving. You don't want to
become stiff and add to your pain.
Hope your flare is short lived and that you feel better soon. Sending gentle hugs.
