After having niggles in elbow an shoulder for a few months yesterday I woke to find I couldn't lift my arm without excruciating pain in my shoulder. On with the heat pads and ibuprofen. Driving to work was difficult, had to change gear with my right hand so good job I didn't have to drive far. Rang Drs surgery who said someone would ring me back. By 10am I got a phone call offering me a physio appointment at noon! I went and the guy was horrified at how tight my muscles were. Like plastic ! As it was an emergency appointment it wasn't a full one but asked me to come back at 5 o'clock when he could spend more time. I was amazed at how quickly I was able to be seen . He has tried his best but not loosened the muscles very much. Have another appointment next week. The pain in my shoulder is like tooth ache and excruciating pain when I move in a certain position. Was supposed to have my daughter this weekend but still can't drive. Very frustrating and very painful.
Is this a fibro flare?
