    Not exactly, but it reminds me very much of when I had a problem with my gallbladder which turned out to be gall stones.  They had to remove the gallbladder.  There were many times where the area you are talking about felt hard and stiff.  Something to think about.

      Hopefully it's not I had a liver scan only 3 months ago and it was fine so I would have thought if I had gall stones or problem with gallbladder it would have shown something up well hope so thankyou xx

    It could be to do with your pancreas.

      If it's your pancreas it can be extremely painful and dangerous so you definately need to keep an eye on it and see the doctor if you're getting too concerned. Better to catch it early.

      Hopefully it won't be your pancreas though!

    Yes I get this. It's been one of my worst symptoms ever since I became ill. I feel a massive chest pressure and it's almost like breathing takes too much energy. I have called an ambulance in the past and had x-ray ECG and blood tests all normal. I think it's just part of the debilitating fatigue, another symptom I don't understand and can't explain. But I hope it helps to know I too get this and 4 years later I'm not dead yet x

      Yessss that's exactly how it feels and it does help that someone else is experiencing this although obviously I'd love us all to get better real soon does it happen on a regular basis I felt it as woke up when lying in bed it's like your body feels as if it's a board all stiff an hard pressure but only in that area

      I feel it daily, when my condition is bad or I've had some kind of crash. When I start to feel better and symptoms subside, it is one of the first to go. Equally, if I have done too much, it is one of the first to appear!

      I especially notice it at night time and when I wake up in the morning, my body feels heavy and it's so uncomfortable I have to sleep on my front hugging the pillow, but that may just be because I'm 'scanning' my body for problems. My CBT therapist taught me not to over analyse every little feeling in my body, because with the million and one unexplained symptoms that come with this condition it turned me into quite the hypercondriact! Certainly when I don't focus on it, it doesn't bother me as much. X

      I can soooo relate tofeeling like I cannot being able to get enough oxygen.  I try not to concentrate on this symptom, but it is a real problem for me.

      I ordered a sports compression top and bottom because they're claimed to help oxygen to circulate.

      Oh and I use a big Dehumidifier because with less moisture in the air there's more oxygen to breath. It makes me feel a bit clearer headed and I notice the difference when I forget to empty it and it's turned off for too long.
