Your never pain free with fibro. Some days you may have mild pain and some days you may feel like you have been hit by a train but the pain is always there. To me a flare is when it gets so bad it stops you from doing your normal everyday things. I had a really bad flare the first two weeks of June of burning searing pain all over my body. It felt like my body was fighting off a very bad bug. A feeling of not being well.
After my first flare that finally got me a dx of fibro my pain level stayed pretty consistant until last Nov and I got a break from it. Then the end of Feb the pain came back and was worse. After the flare in June the pain has been worse. So for me everytime I have a flare the pain level goes up a notch. I'm still better off than most cause I only take 4000 mg of tylenol a day with a tramadol when needed.
luv and hugs
