    Hi Jan

    I am really sorry to hear you have this flare-up, I know what you are going through, that is what made me seek out help and find this site.

    I found trying to move around gently even though the pain was bad did help after a while. Using ice while trying to sit as comfortable as I was going to be, eased it too. I slept on the couch propped up with pillows.

    You can't fight it, relaxing is the best way until the inflammation goes. I hope it eases soon as I know how you want to go to your job.

    Liz xx hugs
