What helps you through a flare up?

What do you do to help yourself during a flare up? Rest and heat are my best friends during a flare.

  1. I love a sauna and the heat mixed with freezing cold showers. I can’t say it relieves long term pain but for those 45 min hot-cold blasts I feel slightly normal

    1. How do you get through the brain fog, the anxiety is really amping up and while I take drugs for it there is no stopping the pain.

      1. Nice hot long bath
        Hot water bottle
        Pain killers
        Pain creams
        Stretching when I can
        Massage when not to tender

        1. Pain meds with heat and some cannabis edibles and flower help me
