I had the most awful fibro scare on the way home from work on Tuesday. Burning in my left arm, pressure on my chest, pain in my ribs. I didn't know whether to pull over ir just get home. I felt sick & tearful. Phoned the docs & described how i relt, that I have fibro, but they said to come in. Hubby drove me to the docs ( emergency appointment) who checked me over- oxygen sats fine, but she wanted me to go to A&E to have an ECG, etc & said not mention my fibro as she wanted them to test everything. So the next 5 hours were spent in A&E- all results fine. On examination my ribs were so tender- musculoskeletal problems diagnosed, which fits in with everything. But this was one of the worst experiences I' ve had. Thankful for a very kind & caring doctor and a free NHS. If in doubt, always get checked out xxxx
