OMG. As u will know, I've had fibro for 12 years so learnt to live with the pain whilst appearing fairly normal. Over the last 6 months I have had flare ups more frequently and for longer periods so its becoming harder to deal with. Last night/ early hours it came to a head. We had been out for my birthday, few drinks and then a meal. Was fine when I went to bed. Half hour later went to the toilet and it struck me. Had a pain like a lightening bolt from my leftt nipple to my armpit. This floored me and happened 3 times. It then turned into what felt like being clamped in a red hot vice and twisted. Ended up in A&E for 6 hours to be told it was a new way of my fibro manifesting itself and flaring up quite violently. The doctor is going to write to my gp to advise then to refer me to the pain clinic and for a reduction . Have any of my fellow suffered this type of pain? I would sooner go through childbirth than experience this again it is now coming in waves every half hour or so
