This one started just over a week ago with a load of mouth ulcers, then last Monday after hydrotherapy my good leg was really weak, By Tuesday I felt weak all over & come Wednesday morning the pain and overwhelming exhaustion had me in tears. I went to the drs on Thursday and he's increased my Zomorph from 30mg to 40mg twice a day for 3 weeks to get me through the flare up as I'm due to go on holiday in a weeks time. It's now Sunday and although the pain is better controlled the weakness and exhaustion is still there.
I'm considering going back next week if it's still no better and asking to have a weeks worth of steroids. I wish I knew what triggered this flare but it could be so many things, under a lot of pressure from work as unum still haven't made a decision about my medical retirement, work are putting a lot of pressure on me, and I've been pushing myself hard with hydrotherapy. But more than that I wish it would hurry up and move on. My flares typically last 2-4 weeks so hoping this is on the shorter side but no sign of it yet.
