Actually, there is a lot that was on this site that isn't quite accurate.  For example, they state:
 
"When the heart muscle and muscles that push the blood through your arteries are not working correctly, you get angina (fibromyalgia chest pain). "

According to the Mayo Clinic, angina is usually caused by physical or emotional stress.  Here is their quote.

"Angina. Restricted blood flow to your heart can cause recurrent episodes of chest pain — angina pectoris, or angina. Angina (pronounced an-JI-nuh or AN-juh-nuh) is often described as a pressure or tightness in the chest. It's usually brought on by physical or emotional stress. The pain usually goes away within minutes after you stop the stressful activity."

I know which cause of angina that I believe!  They are basically out to sell things.  I do take nearly all the vitamins they are talking about, too.  They are promising so much.  So, take sites like this with a grain of salt.

Many with fibro have costochondritis and that pain is in the chest and ribs.  This can last for a long time...not the short time that true angina lasts.  If you are having chest pains it's always good to check with your doctor first.  That's what I did and now I don't worry about it because I know what is causing it.

The heart is an incredible organ and I believe it is the strongest muscle in the body.  But, I've never heard that fibromyalgia can affect the heart.  Just like taking muscle relaxers don't relax your heart.  If anyone is concerned about that, speak with  your doctors about it.  They will have the answers to those questions.  Hope this helps.
