Flares... a question!

259 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Raglet

I know that flares can be triggered by stress, sun light, infection etc but if all of these were avoided would that mean i would never flare?

I've had my first big flare and am nearly at the end of what i call "hardcore treatment" with steroids etc... now i am more aware i am more careful and have started pacing myself, doing regular exercise, staying out of the sun etc.

So am i less likely to flare with my new way of life or will a flare happen for no apparent reason no matter what i do?

In my personal experience, I've had flares triggered for no apparent/obvious reason. No infection, sunlight, stress, etc. I'm sure many here will report similarly ;)

I can also vouch that some of my worst flares have occurred following infection and heavy stress as well as too much sunlight/too much activity in a single day. Additionally, rapid swings in the weather and temperature do seem to affect me as well in recent years. Something I hadn't really noticed much before.
