      Deal with the general situation, but then pick one aspect. That one thing may be the most painful, might be the most debilitating, or it just might be the easirmest to tame. Dont overexpect. Take credit for small achivements. Remember or write down what hekps or harms, even if only questionable. All this helps your flare, but it also helps you by giving you at least some control over your situation.

Some people find that going on a soft/bland food or liquid diet, keeping their hydration up, and using heating pads can help with flare ups. Others suggest hot showers, controlling breathing and heart rate, and staying calm to manage the pain. Rest, heating pads/blankets, herbal tea, hot baths, meditation, and maintaining a positive environment with less stress are also recommended. Some individuals also use high calorie protein shakes, take time off to rest, take naps, allow themselves to do nothing, and do stretching. Pain medication, Epsom salt baths, and trying to move a little after feeling better are also suggested methods.
