Hello Tracy, gentle hugs to you.

I have the same problem - and my theory is that as Fibro sufferers etc., we are more susceptible/sensitive to the energy frequencies from the fridges, freezers and lighting's that are in these places in large quantities - and do not affect "normal" people. I'd suggest using ear plugs and dark glasses in these places - especially the brightly lit supermarkets and high street department stores.

I hope this makes you feel slightly comforted.

thanks carol iwas starting to think it was just me and i ve stoped using our local coop as that was one of the worses places for me, ive told my doctor and she just laughed so ive now got a new doctor


Tracy, you'd be surprised how many GP's are not genned up on Fibro and all it entails for us sufferers. My blood boils when they just laugh at us sufferers. When I first went to a GP 20 odd years ago - long, long before I was diagnosed, I went about a pain in my left foot/ankle that seemed to "move" - what they call "referred pain" - the idiot laughed at me, said pain "does NOT" move - then bloody well called me an attention seeker! I chucked a bottle of juice over him and walked out! That juice was to keep panic attacks at bay - it helped calm me as I drank - He was so lucky I was not far from home - I barely got through the front door of my house before a massive attack came on. It was months before I went back and not one GP out of 5 or 6 knew anything about what I was going through, even when my ankle gave way in front of one GP, did I not even get sent for any x-rays or scans - but given Ibuprofen for pain - and they caused bleeding and ulcers in my fight and plight was endless! But now I'm finally diagnosed as of 6/7 years ago and so glad I was NOT losing my mind!



Hi tracy,

This happens to me and my doc thought it was anxiety.

I have had cbt and it helped with other things but not the shopping. I feel like i need to get out or just stand there and scream.

The coop is bad for me but i find tescos is the worst, and i never go in there now.

I am going to morrisons later and i have a shopping list and i do it in order then i can try and just concerntrate on that but it will proberbly not work.

After i done cbt and found it didnt help my gp said she didnt know why it happens.

You are definatly not alone and i am glad that i dont feel i am going mad.

S good question lol.

Thanx, hugs, kelxxxx
