Does a flare have to mean PAIN?

    I was just wondering if a flare only means pain? Or could you just feel like crap? You know, not really a lot of pain but just not feeling right? Sometimes a headache, or nauseous, or tired? I thought a flare meant only pain, but now I'm feeling really "off" and want to know what other people here think. Thanks!


    P.S. - I'M SICK OF THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have wondered the same thing. I know exactly how you feel. I have all the above symtons you mentioned but not real bad pain. I feel sick!!!! I thought it might be new medicine and stopped taking it, but still feel bad. I hope someone has a answer. I'm so tired of either hurting or feeling sick. I feel like a guinea pig with all the different medicines I've been given. Sorry for going on and on.

    We are all 'sick of this!', sometimes I feel awful, without serious pain, then there is the fatigue that really drains you. But it always ends with the pain for me.

    Its possible you have some kind of virus, if we catch a 'bug' we are much sicker than a normal person.

    Sure hope you are feeling better soon.

    Shalom, Shirl

    There are still times I get sick of it. Not so much now, getting easier as time passes.

    Not always pain for me. Most of the time yes. Achy and fatigue. Sleeping more, and depressed more. Less sleep, trying to stay asleep, all a part of it.

    Usually I flare when I have been under alot of stress, done too much of something that I shouldn't have. Still trying to figure out my limits I guess.
