What causes an exacerbation?

An exacerbation can happen anywhere at anytime and for no reason at all.  There is some evidence that major changes in health (such as a serious illness, injury, trauma, surgery, or pregnancy/childbirth) may precede or contribute to an exacerbation, but those changes in no way ensure an exacerbation will occur.  Usually there is no rhyme or reason.
