Hi, yes, this is something that can recur - that's the problem with trying to do all your normal acitivities when you are feeling better. You can never know when a major flare up will occur. That's what happened to me - I wasn't fully cured, but I was much better. Then, rode the Life Cycle every day for 6 weeks, and caused a huge flare-up that just will not respond to anything. That was over a year ago that I flared-up.

As far as the heat and ice - I tried that for several months - using very warm water for 5 minutes, and plunging my feet into ice cold water for 2 minutes, and the warm and cold alternating for a total time of 15 to 20 minutes. Honestly, it didn't make any real difference for me. But, its worth a try - it probably won't hurt you. A naturopathic dr. prescribed this routine. Best of luck!!
