Chronic left side pain
2 Replies
Chris - November 30

Was dxd with Fibro years and years ago. Have had left side pain for about 8 years. Under rib and sometimes radiates to back. Is this from Fibro? Drs. can't figure it out. Thank you.

Many people suffer worse on one side & some suffer on both sides. Yes, flare-ups can go under ribs & radiate around the back. Sorry for your pain (& mine too!). Dr.'s need more education regarding fibromyalgia.

Hi Chris: You may also have what is known as Myofascial Pain Syndrome. If you look that up on the internet it will explain the refering of pain. It has trigger points which refers pain and you feel nodules that are very sore around the rib cage. This condition can go deep into the muscles in many layers. It also can come with Fibromyalgia. I've noticed that doctors tend to just see this as one syndrome but there are three. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome also. Now there is another condition not related to these that is called chondrocostritis, which is the inflamation of the ribs and cartilage. This usually leaves after a couple of months but you have to take into consideration your job. It could be inflamming the ribs. Talk to your doctor about this, a Rheumatologist would be best and see what he has to say. Hope I was able to help.
