   Hey guys having different pain....never hurt in this way before. I would appreciate any comment. The pain is my left shoulder on the tip and radiates down the arm to my wrist. Also on the left side of  my neck and very sore to touch on my chest just below my collar bone. The pain throbs into my left breast. Fibro? Bursitis? What? Thanks........

That is the kind of pain I got when I first got fibro. Right in that area that you explained. I still have it a lot. But the breast area was my pectoral muscle. Though it felt like my breast. But I have always had pain on the left side. Right side too, but left side always. And it does radiate to the hand and fingers. So I think that it most likely is fibro pain. But I am not a professional. I wanted to say I am not an expert, but I am an expert at experiencing the pain. LOL...

I hope that you feel better soon,
hugs, Karen...

Hey there- I can relate to what you are describing. I had that happen a few weeks ago when what seemed out of the blue I had severe pain on the left side. I tried to remember what I might have done the day before- did I drag in too heavy groceries? Did I forget the door was steel and yank on it like a wooden door? I tried to recollect but nothing stood out. I had a sharp pain just under my collarbone like I had strained with something- then I felt it in my arm bone- a deep ache that made my fingers tingle uncomfortably. As far as I can remember, I did not do anything that day other than bring in groceries that were a little awkward, tromping up the stairs and breathing heavy for several minutes- that strained my chest and moved on down to do more damage. I think the worst pain was the incredible tenderness on my upper chest, but that deep bone ache was depressing. Hope you feel better!

I have the same pain but it is on the right side. That is how my fibro started and it's been pretty consistant since. I also have pain everywhere else but it moves. The pain in the right arm and shoulder is always there, but it's not always intolerable. I have flair ups depending on what I have done that day. I would say that it is fibro but you should have it checked out just to make sure.

I hope your pain goes away soon!

Chuzzle,
 
I've had pain like what you describe. My doctor always diagnosed it as tendonitis. Sometimes he gave me a cortisone shot, sometimes he told me to use warm, moist heat.
 
If this persists and you become nauseated or the pain gets worse, you had better see a doctor.
 
Hope you feel better.

I have more pain on upper left side than right side. It started with thoracic outlet syndrome years ago. I do believe fibro loves any weak places on our bodies.
 
It can be scary with all the chest pain and stuff we have. There have been times I have had chest pain and questioned whether I should have it checked out. I hope I can tell the difference if I ever have a problem with my heart.
 
Do you have tender places to the touch Chuzzle???

Marlee,   Yes, very painful too touch between my collar bone and my breast. The feeling is like a very bad bruise.  It's just a weird place to have pain for me. I've never had pain on my chest. I didn't even realize there were muscles there....thanks for the friendly ear.

Chuzzle I have tender points the same places on both sides. Actually, as I'm sitting here pushing on places the whole area is sore clear across my chest. Most of my soreness is from the waist up. I can't remember a time anymore when I didn't have soreness in my upper body. My biggest problem with lower body is burning feet and that just started this summer.

the chest pain could be costocondritus. I have had the shoulder pain also. I control it with swimming.

Donnaeil, Thank you for the post. I don't know what costocondritus is but I will check it out on the net. Momma didn't tell me there'd be days like this! (for you youngins on the forum that's a play on an OLD song) I really am feeling a lot better. Blessings

Chuzzle,
Sorry to hear your having more pain. I dont remember if you read any of my posts a few weeks ago but I had bursitis in my right choulder and the pain spread down halfway across the right breast and radiated down my arm as well. Very painful to move and to touch but after resting it in a sling for a few days it make a world of difference and then slowly got better and better. I also used the moist heat and that felt so good.

Karen, No, I guess I missed your posts. Glad you are feeling better too. I really wouldn't have been too concerned about this if it hadn't been on the left side. We've all heard the symtoms of heart attack and I just wanted to make sure it wasn't that. I really didn't think it was....but you know how your mind will play on things. It was making me a bit nervous (which I avoid like the plague) so I thought I'll ask my friends. And Waaalah My friends here helped me again! Blessings Chuzzle
