I've been away for several days . . . sorry I missed your post. Welcome to the forum!!! There are environmental things that can cause a flare. Certain lighting can even make some of us ill. I don't know anything about
the chemical you mention . . . but it sure seems like more than a coincidence that you are back in that environment and sick again.
I hope you'll post and tell us how things went at your Rheumy appointment.
How are you feeling by now??
