Hi, Curlyq, and welcome! I'm so glad you found us and joined in. Yes, I have that pain. Mine is from something called costochondritis. Many with fibro suffer with this, too. My doctor has me taking ibuprofen with food for it and it does help some.
With fibro, if you sit or lay too much, you will be stiff as a board. We usually are very stiff and sore upon waking in the morning. Back, shoulder, and neck pain are generally there. The pain wakes me up at night if I move. Consequently, I don't move when I sleep now. My bed is neat as a pin!
Be sure to check out Fibro 101...the second thread on the forum. There are links to good info about fibromyalgia and you will learn a lot there. There is a link all about costochondritis in Fibro 101 so you might want to read that and see if it sounds like what you are experiencing. Also, don't hesitate to ask questions. We are here to help you. I hope to hear more from you soon.
