OK I am learning so much about my fibro on here I have a question. I have a side pain that comes occasionally and as with everything else there is no medical reason.

It is kinda in my ribs and sometimes its a sharp pain and just goes away on its own, and sometimes its like a burning or ripping sensation that goes away on its own. Both show up at night and its happened only a handful of times. Anyone have this? Or know if it is fibro?

Never the same side, but it is left more than right, but it as with every pain is sometimes upper, and then sometimes lower lololol... hahahah I don't think it is possible to pin down a fibro pain :-)

You may want to consider a good chiropractor who is knowledgeable about fibro. Mine puts me straight after several sessions if I overdo or if I move wrong and hurt myself.

I had continual breast pain around a rib last year which caused me to have difficulty breathing. A convential doctor did a heart test and put me on an inhaler for asthma. (These inhalers have never done anything for me.) The pain was still there bigtime. I eventually went to my chiropractor and he adjusted the rib and the pain was gone!

Good luck to you.
Fibromyalgia, CFS, multiple chemical sensivity, herniated disks, spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, ADD, sjorgens, sleep apnea, asthma, headaches. The only medication I take is ibuprofen at night to sleep along with my supplements for sleeping. I am on a regiment of different supplements, I eat very nutritiously, and ever since my injury years ago I have been doing prescribed stretches x2 daily.

Before I was aware that I had Fibro, I experienced a pain that centered in my lower right side for well over a year. It involved a "pulling" sensation. I went through a 2 ER visits, 3 Gynos (one told me that I had IBS, and needed more fiber), a Laparoscopy, and, finally, a visit to Mayo Clinic. The doctor at Mayo came the closest to diagnosing it correctly, saying it was a pulled muscle. He prescribed treatment with this silly little clip on infrared light. It seemed to help a bit until it came unclipped and slipped off the head of the bed, and I burned my hand catching it. I stopped using it following that, and decided that the pain was preferable. Several months later, I made the association that the pain in my side was taking place at the same time as a pain in my back that I had been having. I made an appointment with a chiropracter who did x-rays, and discovered that my spine was curved forward, and the pain in my side was due to a nerve that it was pinching. He adjusted my spine, and I noticed instant relief. I have had to go back for adjustments periodically over the years, and many times, I have become aware of my need for an adjustment when the pain has started in my side.

Like a pulled muscle on my right back at lower ribs. Varies from slight discomfort to pinch to burning horrible pain when stretched.
46F, Fibromyalgia, Vitamin D deficiency, Sleep Apnea/CPAP therapy, allergies/multiple chemical sensitivities, possible Chronic Fatigue & occasional IBS symptoms.

I take vitamins, Tramadol for pain, Flexeril as needed.

I was treated for a pinched nerve for 7 yrs, in a chiropractors office, felt like my skin was tearing every time I moved. Went to him regularly cause when I did too much it came back, have not had the issue since savella so I am thinking it wasn't a pinched nerve it was fibro!
