Does anyone else get pain like someone is sticking a pin in you

Its like a sudden jabbing pain like someone has stabbed you with a pin or several pins. Its is so embarrassing when it happens and I have visitors. We can be talking away and suddenly I will jump up and shout OUCH!.
I feel such a fool, they must think I am nuts.
When my guest asks what's wrong I just reply I think I was stung by a wasp. Cos that's kind of what it feels like. Does anyone else experience this sudden random pain?

YES! Actually it feel like knives sometimes. I literally gasp out loud when I get the stabbing pain in the left side of my ribs. I freak my daughter out. I never know when it's going to happen. I get these pains in other areas too. I have gotten ice pick headaches too, those are the worst...

Those of us who swear a little...or a lot, maybe we should just yell “Tourette’s” afterwards and keep on walking?

I've gotten them many times. I'm now using medical cannabis and even though most of that all over, deep ache is gone I still get those quick, stabbing pains. My pain management doctor said it's because the FM is not cured it's just managing the pain. So yeah, I do still get some symptoms. BTW: for anyone who can get on medical cannabis I highly (pun intended) recommend it. I know it doesn't work for everyone but if you're lucky as I am and it works...it's a miracle! Make sure you use a strain that's highest in CBD. But adding the THC to it makes it work better than plain CBD alone.
Feel your best and Gentle Hugs.

So true! watch what is going on with your body. All new pains should be thoroughly examined. There are some nerve conditions that can be caused by other things. Carpel tunnel is one. I had it but it kept getting missed. Then at Mayo Clinic they said it was A-Typical and the area that was being blocked was in my elbow. They said it can be in you neck, shoulder or any joint!

It can even be in your hip, knee or ankles! I didn't know that. But a blockage where the nerve runs thru a joint is actually a type of carpal tunnel.

Shingles can be real mild and only show redness. The sooner Shingles is treated the better the outcome. It can last for years and some never get over the pain if not treated.

Your doctor should investigate all new areas!

I worry that myself and my doctor’s will think everything is Fibro and miss something critical.
