I have had this pain under my ribs both sides which sometines spreads across my back for about 6 months . It has not effected me playing sport albiet sore afterwards but I do get very tired . I have read some of the forum messages and my symptons are very similair to the Fibromyagia symptons . As I am sat here now writing this I am in discomfort and feel like i want to stretch my body to ease the pain . What treatments are available . I am one of those people who rarely visits the doctor as dont want to waste his time . I also get breathless with the pain sometimes .
I get awful pain in that area. What happens is that your body is laying down fascial tissue in reaction to our wonky brain signals. I visit a massage therapist skilled in myofascial release and it helps immensely. I wish you luck on your venture to find a diagnosis. Push your doctors and insist they rule out fibromyalgia. Some just consider it a nuisance because it doesn't kill us but it needs to be properly diagnosed and treated.
