Flare Up

Apr 14, 2016 7:15 PM

Everything hurts today. It's seems that every joint and every muscle is upset with me. My doctor is trying get my insurance to cover a new medication. So I all have to take right now is flexeril. It's hard to believe that RA can do this much to your body. Some days I do ok and others the pain just goes crazy and moves all over. Even comes with I lovely pressure in my temple. Sorry to complain just needed to get some of it out.

Firemustang21, I'm so sorry you're trying to deal with a flare with just Flexeril! That stuff barely works on me, not many of my family members that it's been prescribed to. Have you tried Aleve, Ibuprofen, or Tylenol, or something similar to go with the Flexeril? What about an Epsom salt bath soak? I hope you can just rest and relax today & tomorrow, so you feel less pain. Hugs & prayers! 🙂💕🙏🌼
