I've found either SEVERE fatigue or really bad pain

    but not at the same time. For me the fatigue seems to come on after the pain leaves and then it's in relation to the amount of pain I had. Bad pain equals really bad fatigue.

    Does this sound familiar to others?

    I'm coming out of 5 days of a terrible flare so I know what's coming and have to prepare to do nothing.

    I try to release by deep breathing but.....

    Normally I just ache but when I get a triple whammy from stessful events as I did this past week, then I can almost count on aching everywhere. This time even the tops of my hands hurt along with everything else. I've had to resort to taking tramadol by 7 a.m. along with ibuprofen to cut the pain. I've also been upping the magnesium, and soaking twice a day.

    This morning the pain is about a 3 but the fatigue has set in something awful.

    Sometimes I just want to run away but there's no place to go.
