My first flare

I am recently diagnosed with PSA and am having my first flare. The pain is intense mostly in my hands, arms, and back. I am also severely anemic so the fatigue can be overwhelming. My husband is wonderful and does a lot around the house, but I am pushing myself to do my share. It’s like if I give into this then I am weak, and I consider myself a strong determined person. Has anyone else gone through this, and how did you cope?
