Confused if it's a flare or not?

I have been quite bad now since Sunday evening, I'm not sure what it is or if I'm actually having a flare, I'm still not on no meds so not taking anything for this...

I have been in more pain then usual with my back hips An shoulders, I'm struggling to walk as my whole body is aching An I feel like I have no energy what's so ever, my boss saw how bad I was as soon as I walked in the door Monday An sent me home straight away, I'm still off work but hate letting people down...

not sure if I should call my rhumy as I do feel awful and won't be seeing him again now till Jan / Feb time

Hello Leanne: how have you felt today? I know, figuring out whether you're flaring or not can be hard...and complicated, because some of us (including me) tend to flare when we have a cold, virus or infection. If you're still feeling v poorly, I'd see my GP first so this bad patch is on your record...and ask whether he/she thinks you should contact Rheumatology. Am glad your clinic appt is coming up relatively soon

Take care πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€ coco
