Are you on any meds to control inflammation. Like plaquenil or even advil?? The plaquenil would be used for skin or systemic . . . but it takes several weeks/months to really build in your system. Most of our issues are caused by inflammation, so the idea is to keep it to a minimum.
I'll see if I can find some other topics about
'what is a flare' . . . you'll get more info that way and being that it is a holiday . . .not to many will post.
Call your rheumy's office in the morning and tell them how you are feeling . . . they may get you started on something.
A flare is pretty much when "your" issues/symptoms are active.
