I have a child's form of fibromyalgia. I've had it since October 1. This whole time, my entire body has hurt except my torso. Lately it's been hurting a lot. First, it'll feel like someone's crushing my back then, the pain will be in my ribs. It hurts to breath. Not that anything is wrong with my lungs but pushing against my robs feel's like someone's beating me. I also get this strange pain on my left side. It feels as if someone is biting me. The pain is only about the size of an actual bite. This lasts for a whole too. The only thing that helps is a heating blanket that has to wrap around my whole body. I've also tried monitoring it, like writing down when I have it but it's always at random. Before I eat, after I eat, after exercising, before I go to bed, etc.

I guess I'm just wondering, do you have this pain? Is there anything that helps you? Thanks!

This really sounds like costochondritis which often accompanies fibro but is a different disorder. Ask your doctor about this, ok, because this is one part of fibro that does respond to anti-inflammatories like ibuprophen and naproxen. If he/she puts you on these meds be sure to take them with food to save your tummy from upset.
