    I WENT TO THE DOCTOR LAST WEDNESDAY AND SHE GAVE ME FOUR INJECTIONS IN MY HIPS AND LOWER BACK. I FELT PRETTY GOOD UNTIL YESTERDAY WHEN I STARTED FEELING LIKE I HAVE BEEN RUN OVER BY A MACK TRUCK AND MY NECK AND SHOULDERS ARE KILLING ME. ALL I CAN DO TODAY IS CRY WHEN THE PAIN MEDICINE WEARS OFF. IS THIS WHAT IS CALLED A FLARE UP

    I consider a flare-up to be anytime my symptoms worsen. By this definition, I'd say you're in the midst of a flare. Take extra good care of yourself. Get some rest and do whatever you can to alleviate the pain (hot bath, cold packs, massage, heating pad, topical rub like deep cold, etc.) I hope you feel better soon.
