Rib pain
2 Replies
Sandy - January 19

Hi
I have been diagnosed with FMS but am not sure if it is that completely. I have mid back pain all the time for many years and now it is gone into the ribs in spasm and is so painful even after 7 days, it makes me feel sick. Going to the Doctor on Friday..the physio couldn't do much and said it was coming from the mid back! could this mid back pain and rib spasms be FMS? i do have other pains and symptons of FMS too and that could be confusing the specialist who only saw me for ten minutes, made a diagnosis and sent me away!!thise site is so helpful.Does anyone know where I can buy a biofeedback machine in the UK?

Sandy,
My mid back hurts everday as well, even laying down at night and breathing makes it mildly hurt until I fall asleep. My stomach pain or nausea I am sure is caused by this pain. doctors call that visceral pain I think. I think the Elavil helped with this pain when I was on it, now that I am not on it, the pain is worse. The Elavil makes me kick in my sleep real bad, my mattress will move move a couple inches a week on my boxspring. Sleep study for me was a waste of time and money, I couldnt fall asleep in the sleep clinic with all those wires hanging on me. Lots of women say Flexeril helps with the muscle spasms. Might be able to find a machine on Ebay. Good luck to you.

Hi Sandy: Has any of the doctors checked you for osteoarthritis for it can run with fibro giving you these symptoms as well. Ask your doctor again.
