    Flare Up

    Hi I’m new to this board but not to FM. I was diagnosed 19 years ago. I’m 70 years old. I’m experiencing the worst flare up ever, achiness, like the flu big time, no energy. It feels better for a few hours then bam it’s back. For 4-5 days now. I haven’t had one in months and months, not like this anyway. Change of seasons, stress related possible causes. I’ve never been on Rx for this. I’ve managed with OTC ibuprofen etc. These days I can’t take much of the ibuprofen due to constipation it causes. I’m researching CBD oil and trying to educate myself on what to know about it,,the do’s and don’ts. Any information on flare ups hitting out of the blue, your treatment, quality of life etc. would be greatly appreciated. TIA.
