      Also, as a retired RN, take that pain med as soon as you think it might be. The sooner the medicine can kick in, the less painful it will be. Also, like everyone said, take long baths, play soothing music, burn a candle that smells nice, and generally just relax! 🙂

      The best advice a doctor ever gave me was to listen to your body. That's def a flair. You've been given advice already. Your best bet to relax and rest. I like to take Epson salt soaks when I'm bad. It helps lower my stress, too. I set up candles, make some tea and play some music.

      A friend Told me not to think about the pain. And how the heck am I supposed to do that??? 95% of my body hurts since 2008. She need to mind her own business. Until she walks in my shoes she needs to shut up.

      I’m having one now been up doing things left and right already hurting but I always push myself. Now the pain increased from 1-10 a 9. I took my meds two hours ago. My whole torso feels like is being crushed my right leg as well. I been limping I just took a migraine pill. And I have I’m not done yet. I wish I could disconnect my body and send it for a tune up.

      ❤️call a friend and try to laugh and talk about other things to help ease your depression. The longer I stay down the harder it is to get up.

      Stress can cause your flare ups. Listen to Shelley711......You don't want to stay in a flare mode for weeks or months!!!!!
