I am also in the loo 🚽 a lot. And I also get chest pain and pain in my breasts sometimes. I have a heart monitor in my chest so that they can identify if it’s muscle pain and/ fibromyalgia Or cardiac. Get it checked out Hun just to put your mind at rest xxxx

Ooooo save me a cake 🧁. Have fun xxx 😘

Not to put a damper on it, but once diagnosed with fibromyalgia, rheumotologist referred me back o GP. Was 10 years ago, but am a lot worse now! Simply no answers. Feel so ill now am going to try and see if thyroid could possibly be to blame, but not holding hope out! as that is something else very few doctors really seem to specialise in. Take care. xx

Hi I'm just getting panic attacks they stopped now there back it happens when I get new symptoms is it normal to get them with fibromyalgia?

It’s horrible to be like that, I know, I was like that a lot last year before I came on here. It’s caused by your mind racing away with all of the ‘what ifs’; I’ve seen this coming up for you from your posts recently, you’re continually thinking the worst case scenarios. It’s really not good for your state of mind, you have to start thinking on a day by day basis — do you remember that old Van Halen song I said to think about, it’s what got me feeling better about things! “Live for today, @#£& tomorrow it might never happen and @#£& yesterday it’s already gone “ that was told to me by a very good friend who had been having panic attacks and anxiety for many years, when he eventually accepted CBT treatment that was what his mentor told him, live by it and life will get better! I know that since I’ve grasped how to do that my pain has been less, the only times I’ve gone back have been when under stress and started to worry about the future again. I hope that you can embrace the concept and benefit from it, you won’t regret it at all!

🙏💖🙏💕

The fibro doesn’t cause you to be anxious, it doesn’t help because when you are, you get more pain and it becomes a vicious cycle. The reality is that worrying about things is counterproductive, it makes you ill about something you have no control over, what you do have control over is thinking and worrying about it too much. I know that it’s easy for me to say that but believe me it’s the only thing that’s kept me from cracking up! Just try it for a few days, just let those thoughts pass by and don’t ponder on them! 🤗🤗🤗

You're right Zoonie my own problem is that I sometimes feel so reluctant to get motivated that sometimes I can waste days thinking and worrying about the things I should be doing😑

Hi Lauren, I empathize with you cause I'm going through the same thing. I have terrible anxiety especially in the morning. I was lucky enough to see a psychiatrist who put me on quetaipine. Panic attacks are result of being poorly or coming off medication . If it doesn't improve go to your GP and ask for help. I experienced the worst panic attack last week. I was convinced I was going to dye and started screaming. I hope you get some relief. All the best , Entela 😊

Hi Hun for nearly a year I was so ill I'm waitting to get diagnosed for fibro I've had a year of symptoms no awnswer a wide spread pain I'm a wreck hopefully in March I will get my diagnoses I'm so ill right now it's as bad as when I first got a flare up thanks for reply x

Awww no hun feel for you. The annoying mental bits are sometimes harder to deal with than the pain of fibromyalgia. Big soft hugs xx

It is hun as from my posts my house has had builders in it for 8 weeks my OCD went through the roof xx

Hey hun, Are you on anxiety meds for the panic attacks? X

Hi Hun 100 ml sertraline it helps I've only just started getting the panic attacks again I've been fighting them off since 3am lol it's because I'm still waitting for diagnosis I get pain everywhere and think omg is that cancer that's not right this ain't right were as if I had a diagnosis I could clearly say it's because of this xxx😑😑

Ah right I see, I’ve been waiting for 18 months while housebound after an accident for a proper diagnosis so I hear you. Maybe sertraline isn’t working? I’m on that and mirtazapine which might be better for you as it also helps you fall asleep at night x

Oh Hun I'm sorry to hear that yes I'm waitting for proper consultant to diagnose me then get pain management in place so do you think u have fibromyalgia?x

Yeah among other things. Spinal disk disease, multiple slipped discs with nerve compression. Had an accident 18 months ago so made me bedbound with care for the first 8 months and am housebound. Have got vertigo and dizziness now so seeing a neurologist on Monday. Been a long 18 months so have had numerous break downs so on two antidepressants/ anxiety meds 😔

The NHS is broken I’ve seen so so much horrible experiences. Been dismissed and not taken seriously. Won’t take it anymore my fight ain’t over yet 💪🏻x

Your telling me girl it's like were left to die on the Nhs or find out our own diagnosis it's a joke what I do no is fibro can develop from a nasty accident your spinal cord and brain sensory messages get mixed messages and u can get wide areas of pain also from childhood trauma it can develop I've been a&e 8 times for panic and chronic pain when I first got flared up I thought I was dying all to be treated with stomach ulcer what I never even had xx don't give up keep fighting will get out awnswer a God willing x

Yeah I’ve heard it can be triggered by certain things. I had 3 of those at once. Traumatic accident, bf left me and my auntie died 😔 so am not surprised I have Fibro tbh!

And yeah they just see us as a patient number and don’t realise they’re ruining our lives! It’s sick! If someone treated a dog like that they’d be locked up for it. But we get no justice. This spinal surgeon I saw a year ago blamed my mental health for my pain, not being able to walk, and my left arm not working. I was a mess! The dirty **** is head of the spinal association UK, top person at Walton. And course the hospital backed him up when I did a formal complaint. It’s shady as. It’s very lonely isn’t it. Can PM me if you like xx

Yeah please pm me I don't no how to so if u pm me first I should no be dying my babe I no it's a bi€€ to deal with I've been a wreck for 11 months now my appointment is in March to diagnose I think I will clapse on floor and be relived if I have it my doctor has to rule out everything first wich makes me so scared I came a way from medication review yesterday thinking I could have breast cancer as he said I shouldn't be leaking still and I'm getting chest pains but I did breast feed for 6 years I'm 32 but feel 89 I just want an awnswer to I can mentally deal with it x

Hi Lauren, it’s a horrible feeling I had it a few years ago so bad i ended up in A& E , they kept me in for two days, doing tests on my heart etc thankfully I had the all clear. I was given a course of beta blockers which seemed to work and thankfully it seems to have settled down, it’s so easy to say take deep breaths etc isn’t it, but really it’s the only way, and to try and think, “ This too will pass” as it always does, take care

Thanks Hun much appreciated x

Hi, panic attacks are the pits. Your heart races, you feel short of breath, shaky and an overwhelming sense that you are going to die there and then on the spot. When you get these sit down. You have to try and I know it's very difficult, to know that you wont die during the episode and at worst, you might pass out due to hyperventilation. Once that happens, the gaseous exchanges in your body, for example you will have to much oxygen in your blood, will begin to return to normal and the panic attack will pass. It is difficult to stop fearing panic attacks but that is the key for them becoming less frequent. xx

Thanks so much are they part of fibromyalgia because I only started getting them when I had a flare of pain x

No I don't think so. I had some years ago in my late teens, early twenties. They went finally so what I have said it is from personal experience. Once you realize that you are not going to drop down dead on the spot, even though the symptoms are so fearful, you begin to think, ok well I'll pass out, so what, then I'll be ok again. Eventually the fear of having them becomes less and then you just stop fearing them. I think it's a coincidence you have started getting these. I've not had one for years. xx

I pray u don't get them either apparently fibro sufferes get fast heart and anxiety I don't no x

I hope your panic attacks settle down and they will at some point but I appreciate how absolutely horrible you feel at the moment but you will be ok. xx
