I just got over 2 weeks of the flu and 2 weeks of pain free. I'm a little confused by it all because now all my pain is back..

I started Planquinel about 2 months ago and thought maybe it had started to work. Other then feeling lousy with the flu I was very excited about the lack of pain I was having. Low and behold the flu is gone and the pain is back...

Has anyone else ever experienced this?

I haven't experienced that, but I have noticed that sometimes really subtle changes affect how I feel. Did you eat differently, drink more water, get more sleep, take flu meds, get more cuddling, anything?

Just general changes in overall stress can affect me. For instance, I do volunteer work and if I get caught up in other peoples emergencies I can create pain -- when I consciously make the effort to only spend x amount of time on it every 2ond or 3th day -- no more pain!

Hope you figure it out and chase that pain away!
