So sorry to hear that you are suffering so much pain. My fibro started as costo chondritis which is inflammation of the rib cage which could be the cause of your very sore ribs. This pain then started to go around my back and I started to have the stabbing burning sensation which you describe. I also found if I tried to exert myself at all that I was exhausted in a very short time. I had always been a very active person before this even though my overall health has never been marvellous.

Have you had a look at our mother site Fibromysalgia Action Uk as there is a wealth of information there and you can perhaps have a look at the list of fibro symptoms to see where yours fit into this. It might be beneficial to ask to be referred for an appointment at a Pain Clinic. Please let us know how you are doing.x
