Flare-ups or setbacks

Setbacks sometimes also called pain flare-ups happen and are part of living with pain. Flare-up plans and taking action early mean fewer setbacks and ensure flare-ups become much shorter and less painful.

Over pacing, having another illness or flu-like infections or going through upsetting or stressful life issues are typical triggers for flare ups. Spotting these triggers and making a note of what caused the setback, and also what you did to help you get over it, are really useful.
