Stress is my #1 trigger for a flare. There's lots of others that have that problem.
First let me say, whatever got you upset try to let it go, I know that's easy for ME to say, but if you're going to try to avoid pain you have to learn how to destress. Some people find taking a hot shower, bath or if you're lucky enough to have a hot tub, a long soak helps. If you know any yoga moves or gentle stretches that might help loosen you up. What ever your relaxtion thing is you'll need to try to do that.
Unfortunatly its hard to avoid stress in our lives but when you see a stressful situation coming along try to walk away from it. Remind yourself that stress will bring on a flare and if you want to avoid it. You need to learn to keep as calm as possible.
I know all to well about stress and flares. I was in a really stessful job and it brought on a flare that lasted close to a year. I had to quit. It was hard to do, because I really loved that job. But I knew if I continued to work there I would never get better.
I'm sorry you're having a hard time right now. I hope you can find a way to get calmed down.
