Deb, I think your instincs are probably right - it sounds like you are flaring. I agree with omega about
calling your rheumy - he/she may want to adjust your meds to help you through your flare. I know for me, the holidays were hard on my body, so I'm flaring too.
I really hope you can get some relief soon and that your flare doesn't last long. Hang in there and take care.
