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. Ice packs alternating with heat pads. Whole Food Plant Based Diet

    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
