So I am supposed to take meds for a week to treat this “flare.” Flare exactly of what I don’t know, I wasn’t diagnosed with anything yet.
But basically a sudden increase in joint pain in toes, knees, elbows (right on diagnosed with tennis elbow) and hips (left one diagnosed with hip bursitis). And extreme fatigue.
I am taking 500 mg acetaminophen 3x day, Meloxicam 7.5 mg 1x, and Gabupentin 300 mg, 1x. Dr. said for a week. Also got a cortisone injection in my hip and down my IT band.
So this is to reduce inflammation and pain, right?
What usually happens after that?
When you have a flare that gets treated, how do you feel after that and do you go back to regular exercise, etc. before the flare?
In my case, I don’t even know what the flare is from……or why it happened. But I know you guys have lots of knowledge with this and wondering your experiences.
