Tired and frustrated

Dec 20, 2015 4:11 AM

Hi all, I'm writing tonight because I just like to get it all out. My doctor diagnosed me with fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue. The only effected area I suffer from is all my chest area. I get breathless and struggle to breath and just sore all across my chest. Does anyone have the same symptoms as me?

Don't know, I haven't been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, but that sounds like it might be asthma related, or localized to your chest

Yes indeed I have Anziety as fibromyalgia does cause that for sure but it's when I'm not well it brings it on more, especially when I'm unable to breath well. When I'm Having a better day I don't experience Anziety so I know it's because of my fibro.

I have some anxiety, but I guess it's not too bad. Do you have chronic sinus infections? I do, and so I almost never breathe through my nose, which does weird things to my breath. I also have difficulty switching temperatures, like when I get on the bus.

Positivity76, I have fibromyalgia and asthma. But I also have Costochondritis, which causes pain between the ribs, causing pain with breathing and moving. Anxiety kicks in when I can't get a good breath. Check into Costochondritis and see if this might also be a possible cause of your pain. It's common among those with fibromyalgia. (((Hugs)))🙂🙏🌼
