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.

1. Do a search for a fibro tender point chart and you will find 2 tender points on the upper chest area 1 on the left and 1 on the right side.

2.Fibro sufferers usually have lower blood volume (up to 50% less in extreme cases) for the body to function properly. A red cell mass study, is required to find out the exact levels. This can be associated with chest pains.
Normal is 30ml/kg    Red cell volume in ml per kilogram of body weight.
Any lower than 20% is significant and should be addressed immediately!

3.All Fibro patients have an irregular heart beat, with a particular abnormal  wave pattern on the ECG (24H Holter ECG is needed for this), indicating that the blood upflow from the left ventricle through the aorta is impaired, with physical scars and damage to the heart.
So yes your chest pains are due to Fibromyalgia and they are real!!!

Wish you well!
