    Yes! I had it, but my GP didn't believe me (she was useless). Then I fell out of bed one night during a bad diabetic turn. I broke my shoulder bone. After a few hours, I figured it was just too sore to get back to sleep, and popped up to A&E (it was round the corner).

    They put me under a general to try and sort it out (it kept popping out), but it wouldn't stay in, so they put me in the most mental plaster cast - I had a band round my stomach, and my arm in plaster from shoulder to wrist, and the bar connecting the 2. Imagine sticking your hand out to get a bus to stop, that was me for 6 weeks!

    I spent the first 4 days in hospital, waiting for a MRI scan - they wouldn't let me go home, even though I could chuck a stone out the ward and hit my bedroom window (just about...). Then on the day of the scan they realised that I wouldn't fit in the machine with my crazy plaster....

    Anyway, that fixed it, been fine since!
