    “It feels like all my nerve endings are on fire”

    Georgina Harvey, 28, from Berkshire has fibromyalgia: a long-term condition that causes chronic pain all over the body.

    One morning in July 2016, I woke up as usual but when I tried to move, an excruciating pain surged through me. It was as though my nerve endings were on fire – and all I could do was cry out. My mum came rushing into my bedroom and rolled me onto my side, staying with me until the crippling sensation wore off. We knew I was having a fibromyalgia flare-up – but it was the worst I’d had since being diagnosed two years earlier.

    My condition started with a need to click my neck when I was 19, after I’d recovered from viral meningitis. Then it grew to a piercing ‘pins and needles’ sensation in my shoulders, and a deep ache in my back. I thought it was down to poor posture but by the time I reached 21, the pain was almost constant.
