I guess I'm having a flare up. My symptoms are alot worse today than than been. It's seems like things have been excualting for the last week. Is that how it's works. And my legs are also for like they are cold from the knees down.

I get that, too. The cold from the knees down. I've found that it's usually bc I have inflammation in my hips. Anti-inflammatory meds never seem to help me, so I have to do this weird combination of ice on my hips while putting a heated rice bag on my feet. The heated rice bag feels so good! I highly recommend making or buying one. You stick it in the microwave for a couple minutes and it stays warm for hours. Hope your flare calms down soon.

I love my rice bags,they are so cheap to make I use large wash cloths sew 3 sides fill with rice not to full,then sew it up. They can be put in freezer for cold packs or microwave for heat and like kitty pain it stays warm for hours.

Hey fire, I'd the cold legs during a flare newish? Also, (sorry my memory isn't too great) do you already have nerve pain? I know for me I had burning nerves in my legs, but it was much worse cold.
