itsalong walk mentioned her flare ups can come on for no reason, instantaneously and last around 10 days.
I started thinking and thought this might make a helpful thread for us:
1)what have you found brings on your flare ups
2)how long do your flare ups usually last and where do you experience the bulk of it?
3)what have you found to help relieve the flare ups
4)what activity do you maintain during your flare?
I have found extended sitting gets me flared up and also doing too many new exercises at once I too have about 10 days worth of symptoms when it happens. Anybody know if the time line gets smaller the further you go in your recovery?
My flare ups are a tight burning in my butt, low and mid back. It's miserable and even the shower water is uncomfortable.
leaving it alone, resting and after 48 hours applying moist heat along with rotating Vicodin& Valium with Motrin. I continue my walking but cut back a hair, I continue my stretching but stop anything new I've tried in the past week prior to the flare.
