Hi, not sure if its just me but every few months I have seriously bad constipation, severe pains on my keft hand side, with a feeling of having the trots, but they make you come out in a cold sweat and makes you want to vomit. The sweats are pouring off me right now, I get so hot i have to strip off then I am freezing so wrap up in a blanket. It comes and peaks and rests for 10 minutes, and this pain is worse than labour. Am I experiencing a flair up or could it also be my fibromyalgia? Please help, I feel so alone

    Hi Janice

    Sorry to hear of your pain, you really should get medical help, it seems you are in a flar up but wiht hot and cold flushes you are in a fever too. Phone 111 and ask their advice. Good luck

    It's not a fever, it's always like this. It's the pain thats so bad makes me really hit a burst into a sweat and then i strip off and quickly become very cold. I have been under a lot of stress latley,  although I think it's caused this, I think that this is making the stress worse. I just want to add that in between the bouts of pain my temperature seems ok, I honestly think it's the pain, although I know I could be wrong x

    First stop Gp and insist on being sent for a Mri scan. If it DD this will show up. Try some buscopan (chemist sell this without a prescription) Agree it could be a infected flare up ,for which you need gp to prescribe antibiotics. My Gp lets me keep a course in the cupboard for if and whem i need them. Usually every 3-4 months.

      Yes have a very good GP now, Had to change surgerys to find one but was worth it. The antibiotic I found works for me is Co-amoxiclav 500/125mg tablets, contain penicillin.

    Have you been to the doctor Janice. Could the sweats be your age?

    I know thats a cliche but its worth thinking about. The trouble is that when your ill and frightened you add all your symptoms together and panic. I have done this in the past. You need to investigate the pain really. My uncomfortablness is in the right of my side. Hope you get some answers soon.
