Welcome, Julie, to the fibromyalgia forum. People with fibro tend to breathe very shallow. Try taking deep breaths, using your diaphram. Your abdomen will move in and out...not your shoulders going up and down.
The chest pain could be costochondritis. Ibuprofen usually helps with that.
But, talk to your doctor about this. Not everything is caused by fibro. When my heart started skipping a beat and I was short of breath I saw my doctor and he ran a lot of tests to make sure my heart was fine. Now I know my heart is strong and I can dismiss these symptoms to fibro. But, please be checked out.
