Hi Everyone, I started getting terrible burning pains between my shoulder blades about 5/6 years ago and felt I could not lift my arms and felt tired, other symptoms appeared,but I just thought that I had pulled a muscle and it would go, unfortunately it only went for short periods and i just put up with it for about a year, I was referred to local hospital and was given some exercises and some Nortriptyline, a long story short, these help a little and only when the spells of pain are not too troublesome, I have also since been diagnosed with costochondritis, I have been going through a very bad spell for a couple of months now, and i am being referred back to the clinic, not sure what else can be done. I try to remain active with my grandchildren and swim at least three to four mornings as I know this helps, I do try to rest but find this difficult, having been a very active person all my life . It is so difficult when nothing can be found on all your tests, but it is reassuring to know that it is not just me, but many other unfortunately have this dreadful fibromyalgia. I am sending to all of you a wish that you do not have too many bad days and soon they will come up with a cure.
