Shooting pain in shin bone

Does anyone with Fibro get this ? It is so severe that my leg gives out and I can fall down, only lasts a couple of seconds,

I've had it off and on for years but recently it's happening several times a day.

I'm assuming it's the Fibro as I don't want to go to GP, sick of Doctor's as just recovered from having Radiotheraphy for Breast Cancer with a positive outcome :-)

I also have what I think may be a lump at the back of my knee which is very painful !

As a result of having a DEXA scan to monitor my bones due to Cancer meds, I have been recalled to see a Rheumatologist so maybe he may enlighten me as to what is causing the pain in my shin bone but that is not for a couple of more weeks.

Thanks for reading

Hi Cheesedoff

I am so sorry to read that you are experiencing this issue, and I genuinely hope that you can find the answers that you are looking for. This is not something that I suffer with myself, but maybe there are some other members who will come along later.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Yes! That's one of the symptoms I had before being diagnosed and still have the occasional stabbing pain now!.. :'( :'( I just think its another pain we have to deal with! However, I would mention it to the rheumatolagist and also the painful lump!(try and see your Dr before 2 weeks)....much love...ninja...xxx
