    Where on your chest? If it's in the center or front right or left side it could be either a slight cold or muscle strain although you may also feel muscular pain near your arm pits which would suggest you lifted something heavy.

      Lol you made me smile Maria thank you. I must admit my dr is fantastic, she really does listen. Plus I'm going through menapause now, that's what started my anxiety off again. I start counselling next week so hopefully that will help. Take care and thank you again x

    Hi Karen ,  i see  you posted this  about a month  ago. Coincidentally ,almost the same time i began getting  really nasty chest and rib pain.Mine started off as discomfort ,and became so nasty i couldn1t sleep ,walked v slowly ,and wanted to hod myself ,as everything i did  seemed to agravate this pain.

    ​I eventually saw my gp (I first put it down to fibromyalgia) ,but gp said ,whilst  FMS patients  can be more prone to this ,it`s not an actual  fibro pain ,but costochondritis.

    ​Just finding that out helped me not to worry so much.He  also  gave me naproxen..Unfortunately  these helped a little ,but ,despite having omoprezole for my stomach ,they upset it badly ,plus i came out in ulcers all around my mouth.

    ​My next apt with my gp isn`t until  28th march.Anybody know of anything  else i might  consider to help the pain ,without awful  side  effects? Btw ,hope  you`re  feeling much better now ,and your pain has eased considerably?xx
