I am a first time entry, please read. I've become convinced I have fibro. I wouldn't know why I am hurting if it weren"t for my sisters having it. My own doctor does not seem to know much about it. Can it cause chest pain? Over the years I have had many heart related tests that came up negative for heart problems. I had always assumed chest pain was related to the heart. Also can it cycle from moderate or low pain to EXTREME unbearable pain and back to low pain again? My pain is in my shoulders and radiates to my hand. It is worse on my right. I am right handed. The pain also comes in my upper back and feels like my back tightens up in pain. Sometimes I feel it in my legs but it is mostly in my upper body. For those of you living with FM can you tell me what you are going thru with the pain. I'm trying to relate my pain to FM. I am not looking for a diagnosis here, just some insight.View Thread
