When Sound Hurts

It's weird as this is something that I've never experienced before : sound causing pain.. But the last few days I've experienced Fibromyalgia pain, which I'm pretty sure is what it is.

I have deadening pain down my left arm and right leg. It feels like when you bash your elbow into a door. That deadening sharp pain.

Nerve pain is something I've always experienced on and off but yesterday I was feeling particularly bad and everytime the door closed/toilet flushed or the toddler shouted out, it sent little electric currents of pain down my body.

Suffering from Misophonia already, those noises are a pain in the bum so to speak but I've never experienced physical pain from sounds before.

Unfortunately, other that shutting myself in a room with earplugs there's no way to escape everyday sounds!

Do you suffer from Fibromyalgia? How do you manage your flare ups when medication fails to work? Does sound effect your pain?

I'd love to hear other people's experiences!
