maria sims - November 11

I have had fms for a year and a half. For approx the last 6 months i have had regular digestive problems and indigestion. Last night i was woken by severe chest pain which lasted for about 2 minutes. Has anyone else experienced this? I also had an attack about 2 weeks ago after my first physio appointment.

I had sternum pain and rib pain due to Costochondritis but mine more consistant. I would definitley tell your Dr. about this and see what they say. Let us know. Take care and God bless!

I agree with Tonyab, get this checked out sounds different. Take Care.

Yes, I have been having the chest pains for over a year, they come and go. Mine ranges from severe to mild and will start to radiate upwards and downwards. They have done all kinds of tests including an EKG..all of which are negative. the best thing is definately talk with your Dr so that they can monitor it. Good Luck

Yes, I'm a man and suffer from fibromyalgia. I have chest pain constantly. This has been going on for sometime now about 12-18 months. I have been checked for for MS and heart attacks/stroke and all with negative results. I have researched and found that fibromyalgia will cause numbness/tingling in the arms/legs and even in the face and chest pain. My doctor gave me flexeril and it seems to help some. My left arm also gets a dull heavy ache that last a few minutes to all day long. I have found that stress and anxiety can trigger this off. I hope this was helpful. Think positive thing will work out.

Look up Myofascial Pain Syndrome. You could have a trigger points located inbetween the shoulder blades causing the chest pains. Get rid of the trigger points and the chest pain may go away.

I had indigestion and heart burn until I had a hiatal hernia repaired. A hernia like this can give you all kinds of symptoms. Ask your doctor for a referral to a gastroenterologist.

I have had pains around my heart area for quite a few years. I have been checked out many times and in my case it's not my heart.
My doctor has found out it's my Pectoral Muscle. In my case it's part of my Fibro. I actually have a massage on the Pectoral Muscle.
In no way am I inferring this is what is causing your problem but you might want to check it out.

i have been experiencing chest pain for approximately six months and today was diagonosed with costochondritis due to fibromyalgia. i had never even heard of fibromyalgia unitl today and it is all a bit scary hopefuilly my dr can give me some good advice.

Has your doctor checked you for GERD?


emma - November 2

I too am trying to find a cause to my chronic chest pain. My doctor is useless and thru self diagnosis everything points to costochondritis. But be sure to be thoroughly checked out. Just to be sure. Elimination is the key as im finding out. But is is scary when you have a chest pain in the supermarket that totally knocks you off your feet !!

My Dr. put me on Prednisone for 2 weeks and within a couple of days the pain was gone. A good Dr. is hard to find but they are out there. Take care and God bless!

A person can have chest pain from fibro. You can hurt anywhere from fibro. It is a good idea to rule out any other problems though. The pain radiates out.Fibromyalgics have tender points and this is one of them. It can be scary. Get a checkup to put your mind at ease.

Fibromyalgia is one condition. Other conditions are not caused by Fibromyalgia but you can aquire different conditions with Fibrmyalgia such as osteoarthritis/lupus/chrohn's disease,costochondritis. Those other conditions are inflamatory whereas Fibromyalgia, Myofascial Pain Syndrome ,Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are not inflammatory. That is what I see in my research but I don't know why doctors blame these types of conditions causing Fibromyalgia, remember we do not know what causes Fibromyalgia specifically.
