That helps. My husband was guessing that it had to be a certain area sustained for a certain period of time. I figured when it really hits me with pain, swelling and fatigue thats probably more like a flare. It's hard to tell since I was really only in 1 flare before we couldn't keep it under control and my dr. was really pushing for a more aggressive treatment plan. I've been diagnosed for 2 1/2 years now and there was some disease activity before I was diagnosed that we just treated with prednisone and that was a quick and effective fix.
