This week I have been having a massive flare up. I was at work on Monday and I could feel the pain coming, like a shadow coming over the sun. I work in an open plan office and just couldn't bear the thought of suffering in front of so many people. Luckily I made it to the ladies and just stayed there for ten minutes until the pain subsided enough to act nearly normal. People know I have fibro but that doesn't mean I need to make them aware every time.
My problem today is that I am convinced I have costochondritis which is inflammation of lung cartilage after a virus. I've looked up the symptoms and, guess what, it's associated with fibro! Oh the joys!
