Unhappy Not having a good day, having a flare

I started having a flare a couple days ago, it reached full flare mode today. I've got xanaflex and percocet for pain right now. It's been 6 months since I've taken gabapentin (neurontin), I stopped taking it because I had gained nearly 100lbs and couldn't remember what I was saying half way through a sentence. I get flares every couple of weeks now, they start out less severe, peak after a day or two, then fade back to my typical soreness that's always there, it was once every few months with the gabapentin. The pain sucks, but I'm mostly sad because of I've got so much work to do and I'm lonely and all I want is to sleep until the pain goes away

I'm so sorry to hear that yesterday was such a bad one for you. Since you said the flares peak after a day or two, I sure hope that today was at least a little better for you. Is there anything at all that helps you when you're flaring like this? Do you have a good support system?
