    Hello Becka,

    I'm not sure if I had fibromyalgia, but I too suffered for many months from dull pains in my back, under right ribs at waistline and painful muscles on a daily basis.  Nothing was diagnosed and two X-rays were clear.  By chance the health shop suggested I take magnesium tablets to help the calcium supplement I take to be absorbed better.  I have only been taking them for two weeks, but my aches and pains have nearly all but gone!  And I sleep better too!  I don't know if it was the magnesium or generally myself healing, but I'd say it might be worth trying and it can't do you any harm.  Hope it might work for you!

    Just read your post with interest as I have similar symptoms to you. I am 38 and I get pains in middle of my back, muscle aches especially in arms and legs and a lot of leg discomfort plus occasional pain in the sternum. Also pain in feet when indoors and sometimes my bones just feel so sore especially round my knees if I bend my legs. My GP has told me its muscular but havent been told a particular condition. Have had blood tests but all come back clear apart from low vitamin D so just been prescribed pills for that.

    Do you get sore bones which come and go? Do you get an odd rumbling sensation through parts of your body sometimes?

    I think I know what you mean. I have multiple joint problems, my right shoulder being the worst. But last week I started getting an odd ache in my right side rib cage. Years ago I had something similar which was put down to pleurisy. I am also getting that odd 'rumbling' feeling. Doc said my chest is clear, not had X-Ray results back yet. Not a clue what is going on, but very annoying
