Yes! I had a bad one for about 6 weeks and cracked a rib! I seem to have a new one now. I think the weather has got cold so quickly these things are propagating more. If you think it's in your chest go to the Drs, it's not worth getting really ill over, fortunately though I was sure it was mine wasn't an infection. Hope you feel better soon.

You really do need to go and see your GP about your cough, and your foot. It might be you have a chest infection, or something more. The trouble with having fibromyalgia is that people like us tend to have other existing problems as well; thyroid problems, chest problems, which include me. I have Bronchiectasis, a lung disease as a result of a lifelong history of Bronchitis, but with FMS, some people tend to get Costochondritis, and with the foot problem, I did have a problem a few years ago with Plantar Fasciitis, look it up in your search engine and read what it tells you, if it describes your pain. With me, it was excruciating pain in the heel too, and the ligament along the bottom of my foot, well, I could barely walk with it at times and had me in tears. I also used an elasticated foot support.
Good Luck,

Another sufferer here! I've had a cough really bad since the 10th, also had other terrible symptoms like the shakes, chills, and awful awful pain but the cough has been the worst and lasting factor. I cough sometimes until i taste blood at the back of my throat. I have a heart problem, asthma and coughing up all sorts of horrible colours so i rang the nurse and they think chest infection so I'm on Amoxicillin but I've been having a bad reaction to them. I've been itching from head to toe really badly so I'm having to take allergy tabs to combat that!
I started to feel better after 3 days as always but now with 1 day of antibiotics left i'm starting to feel worse again and my cough is going back to my chest! I'm so tired of coughing and i wake up with the worst headaches that im frightened to go to bed!
Anyway sorry to moan but i saw it and thought, right I'll have me a moan lol.

Take Care xxx
