Ok- nice to hear others who have IBS/ CFS and FibroM. are getting this too. Never put them all together? Hmmm. Good to hear.When you get an episode, skip the meds and go straight to Chiropractor who does "ART" (Active Release Technique) works wonders!! That's if you can find one in your area. I've been getting the costochondritits for about 5yrs now. Gets scary of course. My chiro has really helped me when it comes on.
Has anyone heard of this chest wall pain, Costochondritis? I hadn't until last Saturday, when it came on as an attack, and I actually thought it was a heart attack...anyway, the chest pain was absolutely terrible for a week. Couldn't really move without getting dizzy and nauseated and stabbing chest pains, but now it's gone down to not a constant pain, but briefly comes and goes. I read in some places that this isn't uncommon with Fibromyalgia. I think it will go away soon. What I'm kind of anxious to know is if it is a recurring condition...while I won't rush to the ER thinking it's a heart problem, I'll know what it is, but the pain completely interrupts life.
