An autoimmune flare up is a temporary worsening and intensification of symptoms. There is usually something that triggers a flare. I would say the most common ones are a period of stress - an emotional event, a significant trauma, or a period of being overworked and/or under-rested.
Symptoms can get severe and intense — fatigue, pain, difficulty getting out of bed, brain fog & difficulty thinking, difficulty doing daily tasks are all common.
