Pain in chest Muscles?
4 Replies
bmcgovern - December 4

My muscles in my chest hurt sometimes and i don't know if it is cause any tender points or if it is the the FM. I don't know what to take to relieve those muscles. Does anyone else have this problem and if so what do you take to relieve the muscle pain?

It is probably part of costochondiritis which is common in people with Fibromyalgia (FMS). I have it periodically; it can be quite painful. I use Arnica gel which is like a sports rub. I find it really helps. You can find Arnica gel at any decent health food store. Take care and enjoy the weekend.

Hi, I've had chest pain for nearly two years, and back in March 2009 I had a really bad pain in my chest one night. Was rushed in to hospital as my doctor said it could be a heart attack but thank god it was Fibro pain, thats how bad it can get. I still think is it my heart or is it Fibro when the pain is bad and now I have been given calmers for when the pain really stresses me out! Also I'm waiting to see the arthritis doc so he can give me a injection in my chest to easy the pain as no pain killers really help. I hope this info helps :-) Take care and try and relax.

Hey bmcgovern,
I also get extremely painful muscle spasms in my upper right chest area. I've also got costo, but I've also developed a rib hump from the scoliosis on my front left rib area, below my breast. Man...if it's not one thing it's the other!!!! What a pain, I will give the gel a try Fantod, thanks for the info.
Doctor did prescribe anti-inflammatory, but due to other meds I take these gave me a really bad reaction. So once again no relief there, oh well what can ya do???
