    Sounds very much like Costochondritis to me. I have had that for about 25 yrs, it is a part of Fibro but I had it prior to the Fibro. Costo is a form of arthritis in the chest wall. Ask your doctor about it, hope you get some help and answers smile

      I will be talking to my docor about Costochondritis, it sounds like whats going on.I just had a xray two days ago and they said it was fine. Do you know if that shows up on xrays? Thank You for your help.

      No, Costo doesn't show up in xrays. If you press on the ribs, rib joints or shoulder bones and it hurts it is most likely Costo. If your doc doesn't think it is, get a 2nd opinion wink

    I haven't been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, but I'm certain it is, the all over muscular pain, and a the other related symptoms, make me certain, I however suffer from chronic migraines. I have been experiencing this intense feeling of fatigue where I have to stop whatever I'm doing and sleep, I can sleep for an entire day, the feeling is do overwhelming I cannot wake up as much as I try. My chest hurts and at times feels like my heart is fluttering in my chest.

      The fluttring could be anxiety, I had that for quite a while. Also the migraines could be part of the Fibro. I've also gone throught that horrid tiredness!! I hink I slept for about 2 weeks when I was first diagnosed sad. Mythoughts are with you Natalee, it's not easy.
