Tranquility: That sounds real typical for me. oddly, my flares are like yours, plus I have hip and back pain as well. The ödd part is that often, I sail through the very stressful incident (s), and it isn't until the stress lets up a bit, when I get some "me" time that the flaring hits. As long as my adrenalin is pumping and I am on high alert
, I keep going. Once I stop, oh boy, look out. Therefore, I have to plan rest periods every 2 -3 hours regardless of what i'm doing, to decompress. Also I know my limitations, that just 1 more errand thing is long gone. I realise when I'm caught up in a series of stressful events, that I will have to schedule an equal or greater ammt. of "downtime'' to recover. As I age, these "downtime" periods expand.Best of luck and welcome.
