How to Handle a Fibromyalgia Flare-Up

A flare could be a warning

Flares are not a choice, they are considered warnings sent to the body, alerting the individual to change their behavior. Many of the elements that trigger flare-ups are sensitive in how they are reactive. To those with fibromyalgia, “Allow your body the time it needs to recover when you experience a flare.”

Just as a flare needs time to complete its course, the body needs a few moments to recover from the strain it previously suffered through. Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition, meaning that it will take some time to exit the bodies normal functions. Flare-ups can hardly be avoided, yet they can be regulated to a degree, but to do this an individual needs to understand their body as intimately as possible.
