Chest pain

PostPosted: Thu Feb 20, 2014 1:28 pm

Hi everyone. I've had a pain in my chest for a few days now. If hurts to move my arms and my left arm is very achey and numb. Pain is more on the left side, no cough so wouldn't think a chest infection?! My arms feel as tho I've been lifting weights! I haven't done anything for over 3 weeks now as having a very bad flare. I've been getting up and just relaxing on sofa!! Is it just another fibro symptom do you think. I'm loath to visit GP as starting to feel a hypochondriac!!!!

Anything new is always best checked out, just to be sure that there isn't anything else at work and causing the problem. There could be any number of reasons for this new pain in your chest, or it could be FM related. Most of us have felt like hypochondriacs at some point along the way. Even so, you're far better to be safe and have it checked rather than finding out a bit further down the road that is something else that could be sorted/treated relatively easily.

Thanks fluppy. Took your advice and got doc appointment last night. He sent me straight to hospital where they did ECG. Which was ok. Chest X-ray, ok,bloods, all ok!! The painkillers did nothing for any of the pains and the doc came to discharge me and said it linked to the fibro!! Never had pain like it in my chest before. Left hospital at 1.30 this morning but at least I know it's not heart related!!! I'm so tired so going to try and sleep. Another pain area to add to the already long list!!!x

I get pain around my sternum and it don't half hurt. It takes my breath away sometimes. There's nothing I can do to ease the pain except rest.
Thank goodness your pain isn't serious although I appreciate it's really painful.

Try and relax when the pain hits.

Hi, I was diagnosed as having costochondritis at the beginning of December after being taken to hospital with a suspected heart attack. I have had chest and shoulder pain pretty much everyday since. I have had ECG's, blood tests and worn a heart monitor for 5 days to rule out any heart problems, also I have had an abdominal scan to rule out gall stones etc, all results are normal so all pain has now been put down to costochondritis. I also find I am very breathless and have asked my GP if this is also part of costochondritis and they have said it could be which really dosnt help me, I have just had a chest X-ray so am awaiting results from that. I have asked my GP if I can be referred to someone to discuss costochondritis as I have lots of questions that my GP dosnt seem to have the answers to, but my GP told me they don't know who or what department to refer me too! So has anyone seen a consultant for costochondritis and if you have what department do you go to? I was diagnosed with having fibromyalgia 3 years ago by the rheumatologist at our local hospital so did wonder if that's who I should see?

in my experiance costos just a name for the pain was dx 3 times with it at a &e befor fibro dx by gp and rummmy . at no time did they offer treatrment , and now with fm treatment ( what there is ) its never mentioned

mind u i dont get it like i did and when i do its not so severe so fm treatment must help it

some one may correct me but i dont think there going to offer treatment for costo thats any differant from treatment given for fm
if this is the case prob not worth persueing it

Hi
I get chest pains too and have had the whole works done, ECG, scan of my arteries, bloods and all perfect. Chest pains are listed as fibro symptoms, so I just put up with them when they come and no longer worry.
