I tend to blame everything on my fibro.

That or gluten. lol

ANYWAYS, I have been getting these HORRID attacks lately. It's typically on my left side, but sometimes on my right, on the chest but lower, like, below where my breast is, more towards the bottom of my ribs. It hurts really bad to breathe in deep or exhale fully or to move. It's a really bad like, stabbing sort of sharp pain. After a while to dulls to more of an ache. I had a bad attack last night and today it's a really bad ache.

So, anyone with fibro, this sound familiar? I should go to the Dr, but if I went in with every pain that is most likely fibro I'd have no life, hahaha. Widespread pain sort of covers, well, everything.

Quoting Nom Nom Nom:" I have those pains a lot and, I don't remember what my doc said they are but, they are normal."

I'm glad to know they're normal! I tend to go "it's fibro!" for everything. I could probably break my leg, and even with it all angled funny I'd be like "FIBRO!" haha.

That sounds like muscular pains. DH is having those. Went to the chiropractor and found out his spine is all jacked up and causing his chest pains.

I have had those pains, always under my breasts in my rib area. It hits me out of nowhere and if I hold my arm up on the side it hurts it usually goes away quicker. I've had that since I was young, I've also had the arm and leg pain since I was a kid and my mom (she has fibro) thinks I'm probably dealing with fibro myself now. I've also gotten more sensitive in areas am just a gently poke stings like hell. Anyways, idk if the stabbing chest pain is a fibro , the doctor I saw about it when I was younger didn't know the cause of it. It sucks, whatever it is.
