Sometimes there isn’t a cause. When I have a flare up in my symptoms I often hear the following comments:
- “But it’s sunny outside, you should be feeling good!”
- “Did you over do it yesterday?”
- “What was the cause?”
My employer expects me to plan my flare ups in advance so that they aren’t caught of guard. If I did know that ahead of time, I would steer clear of just about anything that could set my body off. Sometimes, I just wake up and I don’t know if it is just a bad day or the start of weeks or months of debilitating pain.
