Kaymac it took me a long time to figure the whole flare thing out too cause mine stayed the same for a long time. Sadly, I now know what a flare is. For me the fog gets a lot worse, the pain gets a lot worse and I feel like my body is fighting off a horrible virus or something. I have a feeling of not being well.
On a normal day I get up usually with little pain and it gets worse the more I move and I have more energy in the mornings and it is gone by 3:00 in the afternoon. I was very proud of myself Fri when we had company that I went til 10:00 pm, that was a very good day.
I do remember what normal is and I haven't felt normal for years. More because of the fatigue than pain. But now even on a low fibro pain day I'm dealing with painful osteoarthritis in my hands that is worse than the fibro pain.
luv and hugs
