In 1963 I had a Flare and was prescribed a course of Butazolidine which was very effective. The Flare mentioned made walking very difficult. I had not had a Flare such as that since. The neck and back pain responded to the Butazolidine.
When my Flare occurred in 1963 I was working in a steam turbine design office and living alone. I did not lose work nor did I need help with household chores – just did the usual more slowly, luckily the Flare did not last long. The course of tablets (12 in all) taken two a day (as I remember it) brought about a viagra cheap significant improvement after 2 days. That was the most effective medication that I have ever taken.
