Go and visit your doc, coping with chronic pain or any other long term condition can lead to mood swings which can then lead to depression, so if I were you Id go and nip it in the bud in the hope you catch it early and get control over it quickly :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :goodluck1:

I have bouts of what you're experiencing, and as Denys has said, the best thing to do is go and see your GP as soon as you can. I left mine far too long at one point and ended up in a real state.

There is help available for how you're feeling, and the quicker you can get things back to being more balanced, hopefully the better you will be :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

It's the same here as well nic :tongueout: :tongueout: I'm an absolute nightmare in this state and OH is usually first in my line of fire :facepalm: :facepalm:

I think he secretly enjoys running the gauntlet just to see what options I give him when he's disturbed my sleep for several nights on the bounce and I'm so irrational, I can't accept it when he says he doesn't know he's doing it :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:

I understand that mood swings are just another part of the fibro list set down by Arthritis SA which I have included here. I found it on a question about Fibromyalgia. I tried to add it as an attachment but don't know how to. I found this helpful as I show it to those unbelievers and people who need to know what we are going through. By the way, I have the majority of these as I am sure others have as well as perhaps a few more.

1. PAIN- in the muscle: often described as aching, burning, throbbing, gnawing, shooting, tingling. Almost always exacerbated by exercise and may or may not be present at rest. Can be migratory and differing from day to day.

2. FATIGUE- From feeling tired to exhausted and requiring rest periods during the day.

3. SLEEP DISTURBANCE- not being able to fall asleep and or able to stay asleep. Unrefreshing sleep patterns " feels like I haven't slept."

4. PARESTHESIA- numbness or tingling. ( non dermatomal)

5. DEPRESSION- most often reactive as with chronic pain condition.

6. ANXIETY- may include panic attacks.

7. PERSONALITY CHANGES- usually a worsening of a previous tendency.

8. MOOD SWINGS

25. ALTERATION OF TASTE, SMELL and HEARING.

26. LOW FREQUENCY, SENSORINEURAL HEARING LOSS.

27. DECRESED PAINFUL SOUND THRESHOLD.

28. TINNITUS- ringing in the ears.

29. OCCASIONAL EXAGGERATED NYSTAGMUS- involuntary rapid movementof the eye ball.

30. CHANGES IN VISUAL ACUITY- impaired function of the smooth muscle used for focus as well as skeletal muscles for tracking.

31. INTOLERANCE OF ALCOHOL

32. ENHANCEMENT OF MEDICATION SIDE EFFECTS

33. INTOLERANCE OF PREVIOUSLY TOLERATED MEDICATIONS

34. WEIGHT CHANGES- usually gained due to the lack of exercise through pain and or tricyclic antidepressants
