    Due to the words flying back and forth I went into a really bad flare. I went to the store right afterwords with my husband I got really sick and could hardly stand the pain as it was and still is so intense I had to go to the car and we had to come home. My question is does stress put you into a bad flare and I mean imediately of very soon after. I had to come home and go to bed and that is why I am here on this board right now. Like others on here I am having a bad day. I was hurting today anyway due to weather a little cool out but this pushed me over the ledge and none of my pain meds are working with this intense pain today. I sometimes dream of going back to work and now I know why I can't as stress intensifys my pain and my job can be stressful. Please let me know if and how much it affects you and how quick if it does. I am interested in knowing why it affects us the way it does and if anyone knows or has information about this. It would be much appreciated. I probably won't stay on the board long as I really don't feel very good today. But will check in for responses. One thing I did notice is after I stopped working as I was a workaholic It did helped with the pain some of the time.

    Yes stress can certainly have a HUGE effect on how I feel. Stressful situations can have an immediate effect on me.
    Our bodies must react to it but shutting down ie. pain, fatigue etc.

    I'm sorry you're not feeling well today!
