Hi Mandy950411 Welcome to our wonderful forum πŸ˜€ I'm sure you will find it invaluable chatting to others who have similar experiences and at different stages of their lives with fibromyalgia.

I'm sorry you are in so much pain, costochondritis is excruciatingly painful, I've had myself & been in hospital with it. Have you been referred to a pain clinic ? Are you on any other meds to help with fibro symptoms ?

Please do go check out the mother site fmauk.org where you will find lots of useful information and links on fibro.

It's a good idea to lock your posts to the community so they are not accessible from the internet. If you look to right of screen you will see under "Pinned Posts" a number of blue links & instructions on how to lock it. (If on phone you will need to scroll down)

Peace, luv n light

Just like to say welcome. I too have had costo as long as my fibro and it isn't pleasant it seems to affect the whole body from breathing to moving so you have my sympathy.

Like Janet28 says referral to a pain clinic might help. Just a thought if the fibro is worse in one part of the day more than the other parts have you tried a Tens machine as it can take the edge off the pain. Look forward to your future posts x
