.For me, I have chronic back pain, RA, Lupus, Sjogrens Syndrome, and Fibromyalgia. I'm scared to death of a day when they all flare at once. When I was finally able to deal with the excruciating back pain, about 7 years ago, I got hit with all the rest. It never ends, and I can not take pain pills, for how I react to them. I am totally alone with this pain. It's not a life, I am just existing!
