    Hi Dan,like you my pains are pretty much constant,never get a spell when my pains go away,it's so frustrating.But my pains definitely get worse if I get no sleep of an evening,which is about once or twice a week.,
    regards,Paul.

    PS Were flares not theee fashion accessory of the 70's.
    I was only a kid in the 70's so don't really know????LOL.

    I think those are like break through pain. I asked my doctor that last time I was there because I was always in pain. They changed my pills again. It's worked a little better but know I know what break through pain is......SueS

    I think I feel like you...I seem to have the same level of pain daily. What I call a flare is when my normal aches and pains amplify a bit..AND it is coupled with the flu like symptoms, chills, great fatigue. The "flare" part for me is what changes, I can have a flare for a day or two...OR I can have it for a week or more.But EVERY DAY I have pain at some level, and I wear out much faster than I used to.

    I hope you can find some help for how you are feeling!
