Chronic cramping during a flare

I have experienced terrible cramps with my flares
I drink lots of water. What else can I do to reduce this pain

  1. Oh I really wish that you weren't experiencing such terrible cramps with your flares, , but you are not alone. Cramping can be one of the most common symptoms during a flare. I hope other people here can share any tips or tricks that help them with cramping, but in the meantime, one of our advocates wrote in this article,, that she uses a heating pad for some relief. And this article,, has information about abdominal cramping as well. I hope that you can get some helpful feedback to ease some of that discomfort! -- Warmly, Christine (Team Member)
