Avatar m tn My son is 14 and has been suffering for a year. Symptoms started with very bad chest pain but all blood results came back clear. An endoscopy revealed mild acid reflux. After the endoscopy we were given the diagnosis of chronic fatigue / fibromyalgia . Having been initially relieved that we finally had a diagnosis we are now starting to think differently. Once you have been tarred with this brush it would appear the doctors are not interested.
Avatar f tn fibromyalgia. severe pain under left rib. I was cleaning my kitchen bin and felt a searing pain under mt left rib, at the side. I'm now bed bound, unable to move without screaming in pain. Pain meds, including morphine, don't help. I have slipped discs in my lower back as well. It hurts when I breath. What could be the cause of the extreme pain I'm in? Having slept on my right side last night, I now have extreme shoulder pain. I do have a memory foam mattress.
Avatar n tn I suffer from fibromyalgia and neurophy daily. When the pain is severe I can hardly stand it. Are there any new approaches to this condition. I am taking vicoden, cymbalta, pamelor and neurotyn?
Avatar n tn I have been having chest pain for quite some time now. For the past 2 weeks it comes & goes. It is worse sometimes (it varies from day to day) when I eat, when I exercise, when I get too stressed, when I get hot & when I lie down. It is like a sharp nagging pain in the middle of my rib cage sometimes lasting more than a few minutes. I have always also had problems with shortness of breath & dizziness. I am also tired all the time.
Monster ### FIBROMYALGIA SYMPTOMS Pain — The primary symptom of fibromyalgia is widespread (diffuse), chronic, and persistent pain.

Avatar n tn A bloodtest for Hpylori came back negative, they also did EKGs since my chest hurt.Again that was great. Then the pain almost went away again and now my sternum and my ribs and lumps are bothering me again. Can you please shed some insight on the matter? THANKS.
415098 tn?1214860436 Hi. I'm also suffering from fibromyalgia. This is a disease entity which is a diagnosis of exclusion, meaning that other organic and more common disease conditions should be ruled out first (such as spine problems or musculoskeletal problems) before making this diagnosis. Fibromyalgia are somewhat correlated with our inability to have a REM sleep (rapid-eye-movement sleep) which makes us feel unenergized and tired even the first minute we wake up.

358486 tn?1294779988 I exercise 4 times a week no matter how bad I feel. I just push throug the pain. I do get the breast pain, chest wall soreness, rib soreness. Areas that are ALWAYS sore to touch are my neck, shoulder blades area, ribs, spine and upper back. My butt cheeks, extending down to hip area and outer thigh area. I have more but these are the pronounced areas. I hopes this helps with some insight as to what this condition is all about.
Avatar f tn I'm glad you asked the question about chest pain. I get chest pain so extreme that the doctors thought I was having a heart attack. Thankfully no but they put me through hell to find out. I never want to go through all that again. I never thought of Fibro. being the cause. Have you heard anything more about it?

3202069 tn?1345408082 I have had fibromyalgia for about 8 yrs maybe longer. It is very hard to deal with. My legs bother me alot. I am on pain meds and eating certain foods make it worse. I go to an Integrative doctor Steve Windley. I would say that Diet and exercise help the most. Stretching is very important. My doctor told me that alot of Carbs cause the body to be inflamed. I also know that soda causes me to hurt all over. I get tightness in my legs and calves. I used to have alot of shoulder pain.
Avatar m tn Yes, it's called 'chest wall pain'. quote: "Pain in the chest wall is reported in one-third of persons with FMS...especially true in young to middle-age females" from 'The Fibromyalgia Help Book' by Dr's J.Fransen and J.Russell. This pain does not necessarily equate to heart disease.
Avatar n tn i have had a burning pain in my back and chest pains under my left breast.
Avatar m tn Theres even times when I move the pain is there. The more I move around the pain gets worse. Can you tell me what this might be?
Avatar f tn Hi, chest pain, rib pain. Any place it feels like being, pain. When I am tense from anything, I get pain in my ribs front back sides. Heating pad gives me a sigh of relief.
Avatar n tn This is the only combination that my doctor and myself have found in relieving most of the pain , though I rarely have a day without some form of chest pain. This might not work for everyone with the same problem, you have to work with your doctor to find out what you respond to the best. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Pleuritis and Pulmonary embolism are other possibilities causing shortness of breath with chest pain. A CT scan of the chest can rule out both. Another possibility that can explain the pain is pericarditis. It causes chest pain aggravated by laughing yawning and deep breathing and also causes radiation of pain to arms. Again an EKG, heat echo and chest X-ray is required. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn hi im steve im 23 i woke up last night with a sharp pain in my chest to wear when i moved it hurt i had to wait a couple min before i moved then went and took a warm shower it didnt work i went back to sleep and i woke up in the morning and it only got worst that this time i couldnt move for like 30 mins because the pain hurt so bad
Avatar m tn Pleuritis and Pulmonary embolism are other possibilities causing shortness of breath with chest pain. Another possibility that can explain the pain is pericarditis. However all these conditions cause other symptoms too like fever, cough, breathlessness etc. Hope this helps. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! If the chest pain is aggravated by laughing yawning, moving in certain directions, stretching and deep breathing, then it goes more in favor of costochondritis, which causes pain and tenderness at points where your ribs attach to your breastbone. The inflammation around the joint area gives sharp pain on taking a breath. This can also cause tenderness on pressing the area which pains. An orthopedic doctor can diagnose this for you. Generally there is no cause.
