The rib pain does seem to be a common ailment for Fibros. I endure it on many occasions as well. The odd thing about it is that Ibuprofen seems to help with my rib pain. My personal opinion is that the pain is in some way associated with a Fibro's tendency to not breathe properly because of our pain. If that is the case it would explain why Ibuprofen seems to help.
Good luck and let me know if this helped in any way. I am interested to see if you come up with the same conclusion.....
I'N NEW TO THE BOARD TODAY. I WAS SEARCHING FOR PAINFUL RIBS AND FIBRO AND LANDED HERE. THE RIB APIN STARTED about 8 MONTHS AGO. IT COMES AND GOES AND I CANNOT FIGURE OUT THE TRIGGER. SOMETIMES ITS AFTER I EAT. IT DOES GO AWAY BUT COMES BACK about EVERY THREE WEEKS AND LAST FOR about A WEEK. I WILL TRY THE RICE. I AM IN THE SAME BOAT WITH PAIN PILL BECAUSE I HAVE SO MANY DISORDERS. FOR PAIN I THESE DAYS IT COMES IN ALL KINDS OF DIFFERENT WAYS INCLUDING OLIVE OIL. ISN'T SO STRANGE HOW WE ALL HAVE FIBRO BUT WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT SYMPTOMS. ITS SUCH A TRASH CAN TER DONT YOU THINK?
