Managing Spondylitis Flare-Ups

Posted on April 09, 2018

I'm having trouble getting motivated. I am trying to start practicing yoga again, though very slow so that hopefully I don’t bring on a flare again. - A member of MySpondylitisTeam

On MySpondylitisTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with axSpA and other types of spondylitis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Flares are one of the most discussed topics.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about flares:

"Helping my mom clean her house and I'm flaring. Any pain relief advice?"
"Does anyone else experience neuropathy and pain in the lower body?"
"What kind of meds are working for you all?"

Here are some conversations about flares:

Finally out of my flare. Went running for the first time in weeks.
Between having flares, an ex-boyfriend who is barely hanging on with cancer, and everything I have to do to try to care for myself.

Can you relate?

Feel free to ask a question here.

I get people all the time who seem to think I'm faking it. It hurts when it's family or friends.
