Hi, I haven't been dx as having fibromyalgia though I have a lot of the symptoms since I have hypothyroidism. One problem I have is that my ribs hurt when poked or any pressure is applied. They have hurt like this for years...but only if they are even slightly poked. Sounds wacky, I know. My husband says it's not normal at all.
Wondering if any of you have the same problem...or if you think it could be fibromyalgia (or something else)? I will bring it up at my next dr appointment. By the way, I am 32/F.
Thanks in advance for any comments. This is hard to Google since posts about pregnancies and babies keeps popping up. (I am not pregnant).
Hi, I have had fibro for 5+ years, following an auto accident. I also have chostochondritis. I was first diagnosed with chosto. after having food posioning, and broncule pheumonia. The Dr. said it would last only about 3 months, and was due to the excessive straining of vomiting and coughing. It did not go away. I was then diagnosed with Fibro. The two go together. I have done alot of research, but there is no real answers out there for "healing." I have found a cream that I apply when it is really inflamed. It comes from the health food store, called Sore No More, with capsaicin. I also use a heating pad. Mine is worse in the a.m., when everything is tight, and it feels like my lungs are collapsing. Good luck.
yep i have the rib pain as well and to get relief i go the chiropractor and the pain is gone instantly but after a few weeks its back again then it eases off itself,its only when it gets unbearable i go to the chiro.
when i wake up in the morning i cant move very good my whole torso hurts untill i get up and about, is this a sign for fibromyalgia? if anyone can tell me let me know thank you,plus i have to grab the mattress to turn over
