Hi - Im new!

Postby BellaH » Sat Aug 04, 2012 10:02 pm

Hi Everyone! :-D

I've recently been diagnosed with Fibro and just wanted to say hello!

I've just come onto the forum and im going to spend an hour or so having a look around here and hopefully find some reassurance and help and hopefully i can be some help to others too.

I do suffer with pain and soreness around the rib and sternum and ive had a steroid injection and im due for another one shortly - but after reading some comments on here im wondering if i do have the other Costo - i forget the name - i think il ask my GP about that.

Does anyone else suffer from that?

Take care x

:welcome: to the forum BellaH :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

Hope you can find some reassurance, help and useful suggestions as you look and read thru some of the info and advice on here. You may also come across some :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: as well, mixed in with the support we try to give each other.

Is it Costochondritis that you're wondering about wrt ribs and sternum pain?? It is an associated condition of FM, so could be the cause of your pain and soreness. Your GP should be able to tell you if it is a possibility, and prescribe/advise you about suitable treatment to help with it.

Anything else that you come across or are wondering about, just ask away and we'll try to help you with it :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:
